10 Things to Consider When Looking for a Cat


8. Gender

Choosing a male or female cat is an important decision because of their distinct differences in personality. For example, female cats are typically more friendly and docile while male cats tend to be more assertive, aggressive, and will roam more frequently. Fortunately, once a male cat is neutered, he’ll become more “female-like” in personality.

Another important thing to consider when choosing the gender is the cost of fixing. The cost for spaying a female cat is more expensive than neutering a male cat. However, no matter what gender your cat is, be sure to fix it to help reduce unwanted animal populations.
