Ask any dog owner, and they will tell you about how dogs are so much more complicated than cats. A cat does not have claws, can make a sound or bark and no longer has to go under the bed for a drink of water, unlike in the days when cats were discovered by humans in cat bones and dog bones and whatnot. It’s a much different animal to care for.
What can you expect when you get a new pet? You need to be prepared from the start. Every pet is different and in order to understand that as well as possible, you need to ask the right questions before you take your new furry family member home.
Your first question should always be about catted history. Ask if your cat has been house-trained. A happy cat owner will usually let their cat out of the cage to greet you when they arrive home. Cats are social animals, and they should be allowed to socialize with other members of the household if at all possible.
Another point to consider is the breed. No matter what sort of cat you choose to buy, ask if there is a certain breed or family line that is known for its good temperament. It is important to consider this because different breeds have different personalities. Knowing this will save you a lot of heartache in the future when your new cat chews up the couch or the window blinds. In many cases, the fault is the wrong breed.
If you decide to have a Siamese cat then you should also consider the breed character. The variety in the character can range from very little or even a large amount of character.
Having this kind of character is more common with this breed and they are usually very quiet and so should be treated with care.
Next, you should find out about cat history. Ask what breed of cats was your cat bred from? You want to find out if it is considered to be a good cat or one that should be avoided or put down.
If you decided to have a purebred cat, you should talk to an expert and find out what type of breed the breeder is referring to. Is it the Poodle or the Dalmatian? These types of breeds are very different and you should take this into consideration before you decide to purchase a specific cat.
You should also inquire about cat history. The cat history should cover the parentage of your cat, the place where it was born and the time that it was weaned.
One thing to look at is the breed of the cat. It is always best to know what the breed is, just in case you have some problems that are unique to the breed. For example, the Siberian Husky has special requirements when breeding, so you might not want to get a purebred kitten from a shelter. Make sure you get a cat from a reputable breeder and you are in good hands.
As I mentioned above, different breeds have different characteristics. There are certain breeds that have more character than others. For example, some breeds are known for their sweet personality. Others are known for their intelligence and longevity.
Other breeds may be a bit more aggressive than others. When you are shopping for a cat, be sure that you can tell the difference between breed traits. Talk to someone who works with breeders and find out about the breed of your choice. Find out what they consider to be the positive and negative traits of that breed.
Ask yourself these questions and you will be well on your way to making the right decision when it comes to cat history and character. Let your cat show you who it is.
