Welcoming a Cat into Your Family



Cats are amazing pets that can bring joy to your entire family. They are appealing as a pet due to the minimum care they require. They basically groom themselves, and they can be left home alone for short periods of time as long as plenty of food and water is on hand, but you should still carefully consider the responsibility before inviting a feline into your home.

Food and Water - Feeding your feline may sound simple, but there are a few considerations. If your cat tends to over eat, you will need to closely monitor his food and be willing to offer several small meals each day. Other possibilities include a sensitive stomach which will require more expensive pet food. You also need to keep their food out of reach from other pets.

Medical Care - All pets need routine car from a profession veterinarian. Before you take in a new kitten you need to be committed to spending the time and money necessary to keep your feline healthy. You can take them to a typical veterinarian office for routine shots and exams or you can look for a cat friendly clinic like Feline Medical Clinic in Vancouver, WA.



Personalities - Seriously think about a cat’s personality. Although each feline has an individual style, you need to be aware that most cats have behaviors that not all humans enjoy. Cats are naturally night owls. Be prepared for plenty of playtime in the middle of the night. They also tend to scratch. This means your drapes, carpet, and furniture are at risk. Scratching posts or de-clawing may help. If you have carefully considered all the aspects of having a cat as a pet and still want to make that new little kitten a part of your family, he will provide you with love and friendship for many years to come. As long as you take good care of him, he will bring you plenty of joy.
