Choosing a cat

Choosing a cat is an important decision as you will be bringing a new member of the family home. Before deciding on definitely getting a cat, honestly answer the following questions:

  1. How much time do we have to spend with a cat or kitten each day? Kittens need much more play-time and socialization than adults cats do. Am I willing to clean a cat's litter box every single day?
  2. Do I want an indoor or indoor/outdoor cat? What sorts of predators live in our area that could hurt an outdoor cat?
  3. Can we afford to feed and care for a cat? This includes high quality cat food, vaccinations from a vet, and an emergency fund.
