June is Adopt-A-Cat Month!
Welcoming a new member into your family is an exciting and joyous occasion. However, all life changes require time, patience and care. We will be looking at some of the ways that you can support a successful transition into your new family dynamic.
Tips for a Successful Cat Adoption
1. Choosing the Right Cat
Kittens are generally more active and require constant supervision. Older cats tend to be less active and may prefer a quieter household. Consider how your new cat will fit into your home environment lifestyle.
2. Preparing Your Home
Cats and kittens love to climb and explore. Before bringing home your new pet, take a look at your household to make sure that your cat can explore their new home safely. Stock up on cat toys, food and treats to keep your pet happy and entertained.
3. Schedule a Vet Visit
It is recommended that you bring your new cat to the vet within their first week home. It is important to bring the medical records that you received at adoption, to your first vet visit.
