1. The average life span of a cat is sixteen to twenty years. Will your life style continue to accommodate a cat for the next twenty years?

2. While your house may be child proof, is it kitten proof? Clothes washers, dryers, refrigerators and toilets can be hazardous or deadly to kittens.

3. It is natural for a cat to gravitate to high places such as counter-tops, tables, etc.. The best way to alleviate such problems is to provide your kitten with a cat tree.

4. Cats have a natural need to scratch. Providing a good scratching post or cat tree along with regular nail trims is a great way to protect your furniture.

5. Folks who have not been exposed to cats may be allergic. Ask a counselor about the pillow test to check for allergies.

6. Active children may not mix well with small kittens. You may want to consider an older kitten or adult cat.

7. Young kittens (under five months of age) are very active and would benefit from the company of another kitten or young cat to keep them busy and develop normal cat social skills. We typically require that kittens be adopted in pairs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hekarim, a Naperville Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Naperville, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Naperville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Naperville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Naperville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Naperville paves the way for another one to be saved.
