catadoptYou’ve decided to apopt a cat. Good for you. Which cat is best for you? While you’re at the animal shelter, stroll past all the cages containing cats. you’ll notice that some of the cats will meow at you for special attention while others will just lie there with a sense of superiority about them. There are so many different personalities to choose from and you have to decide which one is best for you. Here are some tips. Look for a cat who’s playful, active and alert. One of the most important things is to make sure that the cat is comfortable being held and stroked. Make sure you ask the advice of a counselor at the shelter. They know the personalites of each cat better than anyone else. Spend some time with several cats and see how they react to you. After you make a choice, make sure the cat that your are going to adopt has received all of it’s shots and was spayed or neutered. Whatever choice you make, you will be giving your new friend a chance at a wonderful new life.

When we adopted my cat Millie, my partner and I were at a crafts show in Ocean City, Md. We just lost our pet rabbit and already had a cat so we were not intending to adopt at the time. There were sheltered cats at the fair. After looking through the cages at all of the cats, one kitten stood out. She seemed so happy to see us. When we walked away, she began to meow. As we were walking to our car in the parking lot, my partner said “should we go back and get her?” That was it. We walked back and adopted her. The rest is history with our little Millie!

Good luck and pamper him with all the cat toys, quality cat food, a comfy cat bed and don’t forget those cat treats.
