If you’re considering a cute, cuddly kitten companion, think about the commitment you’ll be making… for the next fifteen to twenty years.
Can you afford high quality food, litter, vaccinations, and annual veterinarian visits? Consider your lifestyle and travel routine, too. Kittens are cute…but they are also mischievous; you’ll need to kitten-proof your home, and spend time to teach some rules.
Cleaning and grooming are also part of cat keeping – not to mention the fact that you’ll need to spend quality playtime with your pet! And don’t forget – your chore list will need to include vacuuming hair and cleaning the litter box.
So before getting a new cat, consider the responsibilities. Then, if you’re ready, jump in with all four paws!
