Adopting a cat can bring a lot of joy to your life. The happiness that comes from caring for a new friend. But before adopting, many considerations should be made.
One day in the middle of the early pandemic season, my mom got home from the market carrying a kitten. Her friend from another street gave it to her. And I got hooked on the kitten’s cuteness, but I had no idea how to take care of any pets because I was not a pet-lover until that kitten came.
You will fall in love with their cuteness not until they mess around you and your house.
Here are the Top 5 things you should have before adopting a cat
Litter box and Litter sand
Cats are clean pets. They are easy to train where to put their poop, but with their kaartehan, cats are not like dogs that go outside the house, so be prepared to get messy inside. Get your litter box and sad now!
Cats are territorial pets. They love to have their own space. You don’t have to worry about your cat not getting attention from you because they have their world most of the time. And having a cage will make your cat’s life easier. Trust me!
I’m sure you all know why. Cats are scratching everywhere. So if you don’t want your cat to destroy your household, provide a scratchpad! You can also do it with a leftover box.
Get ready to go to the vet. You need your new cat to deworm!
Cats are prone to diseases, especially concerning their stomach and nearby organs. Deworming your cat is important!
Organic foods, if possible
Just like what I mentioned above, they are prone to diseases. The first cat I had died because I didn’t know how to raise it because of a kidney infection. Feline friends are sensitive. They shouldn’t eat many sweet, salty, or tastes that could destroy their kidney. Organic foods are the best solution! Expensive, but you can also make their food. Boiled fish without any taste, but water is my go-to.
And there you have it! There’s no easy way to raise a pet. Aside from all these material things, your love and care will make your baby alive! So please, please love your pet, not just because it is cute. Love them because it is your own.
