Cats and kittens are called companion animals because they provide good company and are wonderful friends and family members. Cats are always there to listen to you when you are sad, play with you when you are happy, and enjoy relaxing with you when you have had a long day. Many people say that their cat is their best friend. That is why it is so important when you choose a cat or kitten that you make sure you pick the right one for you and your family.
Cats are a big responsibility. They depend on their guardians to keep them happy and healthy for their entire lives. Cats need healthy food, clean water, regular exercise and playtime, a cozy and safe place to sleep, a clean litterbox, and a lot of love and attention.
Cats can take up space, time, and money so before your family decides to bring a companion animal home, please take some time to think and talk about some of these questions with your family.
