Is a Cat the right Pet for You ?

Are you thinking about getting a pet and are considering perhaps a feline family member. Cats are very unique animals, and may not be for everyone. Here are a few things to consider when making your decision. 

Do you want an adult cat or kitten? 

  • Kittens require house training and lots of care when they are young
  • Adult cats maybe wise for others since they are established 
  • Overall choosing an adult or kitten, be prepared for caring for you pet from 15-18 years 

Do you want a cat that is Short or Long haired?

  • Consider any human family members that may have allergies
  • Long hair cats may require more attention as far as grooming which can be costly over time 
  • and daily brushing may also be required
