What to Know When Looking for a Cat
If you’re a first time cat owner, talk with your local pet store or veterinarian to find out what you should look for when choosing a cat. For instance, go to a reputable cat breeder, pet store or animal shelter/rescue. When looking at a cat, make sure he’s eyes and nose are clear, he’s alert, his fur is groomed and plush with no bald patches, his nails are trimmed and he walks with no limps. In addition to picking the right cat, make sure you’re ready to bring the cat home. For instance, do you have a safe place for your cat to spend his time indoors? You will need to provide your cat with a litter box, bed, and possible toys along with a food bowl and a water bowl. If you have other animals in the home, will they get along with a cat?
