Pet Care Hints & Tips

Thinking of getting a new pet?

Cat or Kitten

A new cat or kitten can make for a brilliant pet in the home. They are independent and loving and will settle well into a loving family house. The decision is whether to get a cat or a kitten? Taking on a kitten can prove to be very time consuming as they require lots of love and attention, up to four meals a day, a great deal of playtime and a very watchful eye. Even though an adult cat will require equal love and attention, they will be less demanding.

Can you spare numerous hours playing with a sprightly kitten?
Do you want to fully train your new pet or would you like a pet that has already been trained?
Do you live in a flat? If so you may have to get a housecat, if there is no garden/outdoor area.
Some cats need grooming; is this something you have time to do on a regular basis?
Can you afford the vet's bills in an emergency and the routine healthcare bills?

There are many websites and helpful books available that outline the different breeds available. Once you have decided on a particular breed that you are interested in, make sure that you fully research their temperament and needs.
