Are you thinking of adopting a kitten?

Consider adopting a kitten with either another kitten as a playmate or with an adult cat for better socialization.

Are you away from home for extended periods of time? If so, it is recommended that you adopt two cats so they have company when you are not at home. Obviously this will mean greater expense, twice the food, vet’s bills etc., but you will also have double the fun!!!

Do you have the time playing with your cat, grooming, feeding, cleaning and petting? A cat can live for up to 15+ years and is a lifelong commitment. Remember a cat is a living creature with emotions just like you.

What age is best for you? Let’s face it, kittens are cute, they are playful & they are entertaining to watch. It is wonderful watching your bundle of fluff grow into an adult. But adopting an adult has it’s advantages too. It’s personality is developed, so you know what you are getting. Adults in general are less energetic than kittens, require less training & are less likely to chew on cords etc. Adults are often overlooked for adoption at shelters, which is a terrible shame as an adult can provide just as much love & companionship as a kitten, so do give some thought to adopting an adult. If you have a young child/toddler then an older cat may be better than a small kitten.

Longhair or shorthair? This comes down to personal choice. Longhaired cats are beautiful, but do require regular grooming to keep their coat matt free, so please be prepared to put in the maintenance that comes with a longhaired cat.

Inside or out? It really is best to keep your cat indoors, not only for your cat’s safety but also so it doesn’t impose on the neighbors. If you do feel it important that your cat enjoy the outdoors then it is recommended that you either provide the cat with a suitably built cat enclosure or train your cat to walk on a leash.

Declawing? In some countries and states, declawing is considered illegal and inhumane. Before you make the decision to declaw your cat, there are some important facts you should know. Declawing is not like a manicure. It is serious surgery. Your cat’s claw is not a toenail. It is actually closely adhered to the bone. So closely adhered that to remove the claw, the last bone of your the cat’s claw has to be removed. Declawing is actually an amputation of the last joint of your cat’s “toes”. When you envision that, it becomes clear why declawing is not a humane act. It is a painful surgery, with a painful recovery period. Amputating the important part of their anatomy that contains the claws drastically alters the conformation of their feet. The cat is also deprived of its primary means of defense, leaving it prey to predators if it ever escapes to the outdoors.
