Before choosing a new cat, do your research and think about your options. Keep in mind the personality, age, and appearance, you’re looking for as well as the kinds of pets you already have at home. If you’ve never owned a cat before, it’s also important to know what taking care of your new cat will involve in advance.

In choosing a cat, you must first decide whether you want to bring home a kitten, a juvenile, or an adult. Generally, kittens are curious, playful, and energetic. You get to watch them grow and mature, and can influence the development of their personality. A kitten may also be more readily accepted by pets that you already have. An adult cat’s personality is already established, so you’ll have a better idea of how the cat will fit in your particular home situation. Healthy adult cats usually require less intensive care and supervision than kittens or juveniles do.Great Amazon Must Haves for any Cat Owner:

If you have a cat at home, you probably have one because you really want to touch it. However, most people don't really know where cats like to be touched. So, I want to tell you a little bit about cats favorite places. The most common place that cats enjoy touch is right around their neck and their face. They like to be scratched right here at their cheeks, under their chin, behind the ears and right at the neck like this.

Some cats also really enjoy having their tail head scratched right where their tail meets their spine. Things that cats don't generally like include scratching the belly although Fria doesn't mind it so much, but scratching the belly really not something most cats enjoy. Some cats are okay with you stroking them, but only a little bit. If you notice that your cat's tail starts to thrash when you're doing that, go back to scratching the head because that's again most cats favorites.

Most people know this but most cats really don't like it when you touch their legs. You can see Fria's giving her head again because she'd much rather I scratch her there than touch her paws and of course, make sure that if you are stroking a cat, stroke the correct way which is from head to tail. Not from tail to head. Cats don't enjoy that.

If you decide you want to do some massage then just move your fingers lightly in the areas that you know cats enjoy like the neck in little circles. That's how you can get started enjoying petting your cat without triggering them to be uncomfortable.How Do I Know if My Cat is Sick and Needs Treatment?
Even provided with balanced nutrition, vaccines, and a good amount of love and attention, cats can still get sick. By spotting the signs of illness early, you can ensure that your cat gets the proper medical care. A sick cat may have a dull and patchy coat, either because its skin is directly affected by disease or because a sick cat may stop grooming. Other signs of illness include a lack of appetite, persistent , , nasal or ocular discharge, sneezing, weight loss, straining to urinate, painful urination, bloody urine, frequent urination, excessive thirst, frequent or infrequent urination, difficulty breathing or rapid breathing, lethargy, and/or any swelling that appears rapidly or continues to increase in size over time. After following these cat care tips, the both of you are ready to become the “best friends forever” you were always meant to be! For more information about cat care, please contact the pet experts of
