Springtime is the
beginning of kitten season. This time of
year is a popular time for newborn kittens to find a home in local
shelters. This also means that it’s a great
time to adopt your first cat. Here are a
few things that you should consider before adopting a cat this June.
- Room for Two – Cats need regular
exercise, stimulation and social interaction.
If you have the room, two cats can provide this for each other.
- Personality – Just like us, each cat
has a unique personality. Cats with long
hair tend to be more easygoing than lean cats with short hair. Consider working with the adoption center to
find a cat that matches your own personality.
- Vet Visit – Take any records you
received from the adoption center with you to your first vet visit.
- Cat-Proof Home – If you have never
had a pet before, you may be accustomed to leaving food out on the
counter. However, your cat might jump on
the counter to reach it. Hide electric
cords and pick up any small objects that your kitten might accidently swallow.
