Everything you need to know about cats!

How long can I live?

I have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years if you take good care of me everyday!

What size am I?

I am about 3.5 to 5 kg, but some cats are bigger!

What colour am I?

I come in different colours since there are many breeds (types) of cats.

What's my personality like??

Cats' personalities vary. You will have to spend some one-on-one time with a cat to check out his 'catitude'!

Did you know
             that cats are the most popular pets in North America?

What do cats need to be healthy and happy?

I need  healthy food. I should be fed twice a day (breakfast & dinner). I need dry food (kibble) and wet food (soft). If I'm a kitten I need a special kitten food until I am an adult. Please keep my food dish clean, too!
I need plenty of fresh water.
It’s best for me to live inside where I am safe.
Don’t let me outside alone - keep me supervised. I can get lost, hurt or hit by a car. I need to wear a leash and collar/harness to keep me safe and under your protection if I go outside.
I need to be brushed once a week. It keeps my fur healthy and feels good, too! And don’t forget to trim my claws so they don’t get too long.
I need a yearly check-up and vaccinations (shots) at the veterinarian (animal doctor) to keep me healthy. If I am a female, I should also be spayed. If I am a male, I should be neutered.  This will stop me from breeding and reproducing.
Please clean my litter box every day. I am a very clean animal!
Sometimes I have problems using the litter box and may go to the bathroom where I shouldn’t. This behaviour is often fixable, but you should see my veterinarian for help.
I am a very social animal and I need lots of attention and love.
