Pros: they purr and snuggle. Cats not kittens are mellow and protective, playful at all ages. Don't need to be taken for daily walks, no bathing required its recommended that you don'tno dog smell, and they take care of mice in beinv house and in your yard. They are trainable. I'd like to ask you a favor. Rescue an older cat.
It doesn't have to be an old cat just one that is no longer a kitten maybe up to 5 years old. Kittens don't have as much trouble being adopted so its the old cats that get gassed. I hope you are adopting from a shelter. Quote: Originally Posted by Ohiogirl81 Cons: You will never be able to be on the other side of a closed door without complaint.

Pros: You get companionship, snuggles, warmth, softness, friendship, love, laughter, and an excuse to be a couch potato. I can add very little to these two responses, as to general pros and cons.

Please consider, and decide, what is more important to you I would rather see you not adopt a cat, than adopt one and declaw it to protect your veyerinarian.
Do do your homework on this barbaric practice.

My personal recommendation is to establish a savings account now while they are young and healthy so you will have resources later should you need it. There's also pet health insurance, but I have no experience with that to recommend. Last but not least The worst wet food is better than the best dry food, and a raw or similar diet would be optimal.
