Choosing a cat

Looking to adopt a cat? Making sure you choose the right cat for you is as important as offering a new home.

How can you choose the right cat for your home?

Cats are as individual as humans, with different characters and varying needs.

Make sure you think about what type of cat you're looking for before you adopt.

Quieter households might be content with an older cat – they're likely to be very laid-back and already house-trained.

Kittens, meanwhile, require more attention and energy and are best suited to those with time to give.

Consider an indoor cat or a cat with a disability

Those living in smaller spaces might like to consider getting an indoor cat or a cat with a disability. They can make excellent companions, without the worry and risks of a cat heading outdoors.
