Which Cat is right for you?
First time Cat owner? Not sure if your lifestyle suits pets? Felins are sometimes miss understood and have a damaged reputation, but the trues is, cats are fascinating caring creatures. And like us, some are more social than others. So we gathered information to help you choose.
Despite the somehow lazy snob appearance, cats are remarkably efficient. Throughout history, there was a strong bond between cats and humans. Keeping a large kingdom’s granaries safe from rodents was not an easy task, and laws made for their protection. Cats were passengers on many expeditions, preventing ropes and woodwork damage, keeping food stores and ship crew safe from diseases. Above all that, they have been an enjoyable companion to sailors on long journeys away from home and family.
Owning a cat in the house is an ancient tradition. Today we have an option to pick a specific breed that might fit better with our lifestyle, whether it’s a house full of children or different pets, and maybe you aren’t home for most of the day. Every cat has a unique character. Anticipating its behavior is a bit complex and set by socialization period experiences that last up to 7-8 weeks. Purebred cats have more predictable personalities and look. Unfortunately, they face more health issues than mixed breeds.
Sometimes we fall in love with a unique look and might not consider their characteristic. In any case, we advised you to research around and get personalized with a breed you desire. Visit animal shelters and purebred rescues. The number of abandoned pets in the world is still high. We encourage going to shelters and finding the perfect cat for you, and they can answer all your questions. If you wish to purchase, make sure the seller is a legit breeder.
