It’s Adopt a Cat Month!
THE PURR-FECT COMPANION What You Need to Know Before Adopting a Cat
Third, make an appointment with a veterinarian when you’re ready to adopt. Ideally, you want to set this appointment as soon after the adoption date as possible. That way, when you bring your new companion home, you’ll know they are healthy — or at least be aware of any health problems that will require medication or a bit of TLC. For more about adopting your first cat, be sure to check out these a- meow -zing resources:
There’s nothing quite like the warmth of a cat as she curls up in your lap and purrs. June is National Adopt a Cat Month, making this the purr-fect time to bring home a new companion! All across America, millions of cats and kittens are in need of a loving home. Adult cats are often put up for adoption when their owners can no longer care for them, and an unexpected litter of kittens may have trouble finding homes. But you can help! If you’re considering getting a cat, the newest member of your family may be waiting for you at your local shelter or humane society. But before you take that next step toward cat ownership, there are a few things you need to know. First, find a cat with a personality that makes sense for your family and your living space. No two cats are alike. Some are
friendly and great with small children, while others enjoy a quiet cuddle and plenty of alone time. Keep in mind that personality traits can change over time. A rambunctious kitten may eventually mellow out, while a shy kitten might want to be the center of attention when she grows up. When you visit a shelter or humane society, carefully read through every personality description and ask questions about each cat. Second, cats are territorial creatures. They need a space they feel belongs to them, whether that space is indoors or out — or both. Before you introduce a cat into your home, make sure they have space to explore right away. Set up a few spaces just for them, with food, water, and toys. Make sure the litter box is away from their food and water. Placing these items in separate rooms is critical. If they’re too close, the cat may avoid eating or drinking!
