We want your adoption to succeed. So before adopting a cat or dog please take some time to ask yourself the following questions:
Is the timing right for you and your family?
Adopting a new pet is a lifetime commitment, which can mean up to 15-20 years for a kitten. Think ahead as to how your new friend will fit into your future, as well as into your present situation. Lifestyle changes such as moving or the birth of children can be hard to predict, but considering what may happen down the road can help you select the right pet now.
Are you ready for the expenses?
The love a newly-adopted pet provides is priceless; keeping them happy and healthy is not. The cost of food, veterinary care, grooming, and liter can add up. Are you willing and able to cover those costs?
How much attention can you give your new pet?
Cats are healthiest and happiest when kept indoors, so exercise is usually not an issue, but most still love to play and spend time with you. If your work demands that you travel often, or if you’re out of the house most days and evenings, you will have to make arrangements to ensure your new pet gets the enrichment he or she needs.
Will your new pet fit in with your family?
Make sure all members of your family, both the two-legged and four-legged kind, can accommodate the addition of a new cat to your household. Consider everyone’s personality, health and level of responsibility in your choice.
Once you have answered all of these questions honestly and your answers align, then it's time to get the cute little cat you have your eye on!
