There are many things to consider when getting a cat but here are some of the main ones.

  • Do you have a safe enclosed outside space for your cat, or do you live in a small space and your cat will live indoors?
  • Do you have a busy lifestyle?
  • Will you need a cat that is more independent and happier to be on its own?
  • If you’re short on time, then also consider choosing a breed with less grooming requirements.
  • Do you already have pets? How will this impact on them and on the new family member?
  • If you have a young family, then looking for an outgoing confident cat that loves the attention is a must. If you have a quieter lifestyle then a more reserved, shy or reclusive cat might be better.

Understanding the answers to all of these questions will help you to decide on what kind of cat is best for you.
