Choosing the shelter cat that wants to come home with you can be intimidating. 
If you're in a shelter with colony rooms, like the ones at Salt Lake County Animal Services,
take your time, sit down in the room and give the cats a few minutes to show you who they are. 

The following are a few tips to help you know if a shelter cat wants to come home with you.  

Tripping You: This cat doesn’t want you to go anywhere without them! When cats rub against you, they are trying to mark you with their smell.

Talking to You: “Chirps,” “Meows,” and “Purrs,” these cats have so many stories to tell, and are great company at home.

The Lap Cat: This cat will always love you, and love to sleep on you.

Making Muffins: Kneading, is said to be one of the ways cats say they love you, and means they are super happy.

The Sleeping Cat: Because really every cat wants to go home. This cat is nice and relaxed and wants you to choose them, but please let the sleeping cat lay.
