Are you ready to adopt? Before you jump in, here are a few things to consider.
So you want to adopt? Be sure to take some time to consider how this new family member will fit into your life and your home.
Pets can live a long time. Consider if you and your family are prepared to take the time and effort to give this pet a loving home for the long-run.
Feeding, playing, grooming and going to the vet all take time. How will this fit into your family’s schedule? What will you do with the pet while you are on vacation?
Food, supplies, toys, veterinary care and vacation arrangements can run into the hundreds or even thousands of dollars per year if you have multiple pets. Be sure you understand the financial investment you’ll be making.
Your new pet will need some time to adapt to his new surroundings. So you will need to actively manage his behavior with training and toys.
Are all members of the family responsible for care of the pet? Are there any allergy issues to consider? You’ll need to set expectations for everyone in your household.
How will the pet fit in with the others in your house? Have they ever interacted with another animal?
Room to grow?
There are considerations related to the space you have available. If you are a renter, does your apartment or house allow pets? Will you have to pay a deposit or other additional fees? You also should make sure there is enough room for your new cat to play.
