Cats have always been an “easy” pet in the past. After all, you don’t have to take them for a walk, they sleep a lot and days are often spent outside somewhere in a sunny spot.
Over the last few years, owning a cat has become somewhat of a controversy, in that they have made a bad name for themselves, by “hunting” birds and wildlife.
More frequently, people are turning them into permanent indoor pets to avoid those issues, to reduce the fighting that is often associated with territorialism and to prevent them from being run over by cars.
This in turn has made us look at more specific cat breeds, which suit this kind of lifestyle best.
If you’re thinking of getting a cat, please take the time to look up the different breed characteristics.
Please don’t forget to consider the wonderful Australian “Moggie”!
Here at “Dr Jana’s Veterinary Centre”, we also have a Cat Adoption Program available, please contact us to find out more about it.
