Signs You’re Not Ready For a Cat

Adopting a cat.

In a perfect world, everyone would have at least four healthy, happy, and safe cats at home. There’s no question that sharing life with cats is a beautiful, satisfying experience (and may even improve our mental health). But simply wanting cats is very different from being able to properly care for their many needs.

A healthy dose of reality is required long before adoption, and a level headed approach to their care is necessary throughout their (sometimes very) long lives. If you’re not ready for a cat today, that’s okay. It means that you understand what they actually need to thrive, and we’re grateful for your sensibility.
