Adopting A Cat

Cats make great pets, but where should you get a cat from? A breeder, a pet store, or adopt it? This article will discuss adoption and why it's a great choice for anyone who wants a cat.

Most cats like to cuddle, you can play with them, they are clean and rarely ever require a bath, and you don't even have to let them outside to go to the bathroom. All cats are great, so why not adopt one.

If you adopt a cat from somewhere like your local SPCA they will be spayed or neutered and vaccinated. You can see all the cats they have, choose one. Many of these places even have rooms where you can be introduced to the cat and play with it to make sure it will be a good fit.

Adopting a cat saves its life and it's a lot cheaper than buying from a pet store. If you want a purebred you may have to find a breeder, which takes a lot of time and effort.

You can go to a pet store and then a shelter and find similar cats, with the same health and temperament, the only difference will be the price.

Cats at shelters are great pets. There are so many dogs and cats, many get left behind. People purchase pets and then realize they don't have the time to care for them. Others just don't have the patience or knowledge of how to handle pets. Many kittens at shelters are only there because people do not spay or neuter their cats and then they don't want the kittens. If you want a kitten, they are often found at shelters too. You may even be able to adopt kittens that are siblings if you have enough room on your home and heart for more than one cat.

Go to your local SPCA or animal rescue shelter today. You are bond to find a really great cat that you can make your own.
