Ten tips to know when adopting a cat
• They need to be fed nutritious food regularly.
• Cats also need plenty of cool, clean, fresh water.
• Keep your cat inside your home with you. Also keep him away from house plants as some are also poisonous to cats.
• Do NOT automatically have your cat declawed. Declawing has been compared to removing your fingernails.
• Cats do NOT need to go outside. Cats are almost always naturally housebroken and will use a litter box.
• Make sure your cat wears identification, even if you never let him outside.
• Cats do NOT need to be bathed. A healthy cat keeps clean and well groomed.
• Make sure your cat gets good veterinary care.
• Have your cat spayed or neutered by a veterinarian or at the ASPCA once the animal reaches maturity.
• Give your cat plenty of love and affection.
