No one can resist the allure of a cute and fluffy kitten, even if they don’t consider themselves to be cat people. However, because kittens are so good at being adorable, people may give into impulse and become an owner without much previous thought. Fortunately, to help prepare yourself, here are 9 tips for bringing a new kitten home:
1. Determine if a kitten is really the right pet for your needs
Although cats are more independent than dogs, they’re still not for everyone. Given that the average lifespan typically falls between 12 to 15 years, getting a furry feline is a long-term commitment. They require a lot of space, toys, scratching posts, and attention to prevent destruction from instinct and boredom. They also require knowledgeable owners that will be able to fulfill their every need to keep them happy and healthy.
