|Alot of people, when getting a cat choose to get a new kitten. while its your choice, and kittens need love too, im here to plead the case of every homeless adult cat out there.
Any cat, regaurdless of breed, color, or sex can be a good cat or bad. I think its allways best to get an adult cat. this is why:
you allready know how big there going to be and if there long or short hair.
they are allready litter trained, and for the most part, know proper manners. ( not to bite, ect) some adults need to be corrected, but most know.
Adult cats need you! cute kittens get homes in a hot minute. Adults are often over looked because its a common myth that you should get a kitten so it can be raised with you. But accully most adult cats adapt to homes very well. with kittens, sometimes even when they are rasied in a home, there personailty dosnt suit the home and the kitten, ( now an adult) finds itself at the pound.
Some may aurge that they allready have a cat, and kitten would ajust better. This isnt allways true. it depends on your cat. An older cat may not want a young kitten biting his tail all the time. on the other hand, a cat that likes to play might love it. The truth is, adult cats can get along too depending on there personailes.
Remember, every cat was once a cute little kitten.
If you end up getting a cute little kitten, then good for you. Kittens need homes too. but i am just asking you consider an adult cat. Homeless cats come in every way. Some are still playfull and fun. And alot can get along with other pets and children.
Most cat rescues keep there cats in there own home or in a home-like enviroment. they can match you to a cat that fits your wants and needs. with a kitten, its hard to say if they will grow up to be like that.
i hope i have atleast convinced some of you future cat owners to consider all cats when adopting.
