Acquiring a Cat Should be the Start of a Lifelong Relationship
A cat isn’t an article of clothing that can be returned if it doesn’t fit or tossed away if you don’t like it anymore. The decision to add a cat to the family (whether it’s the first cat or an additional cat), should be made thoughtfully. All-too-often, many in our society view animals as disposable and easily replaceable if they are no longer convenient to our lifestyles. Having multiple cats can add an unbelievable amount of joy to your household but it can also cause stress and heartache if done incorrectly or if not thought out beforehand. If you’re concerned that adding one more cat may put you, your family, your current cats and the newcomer in an unhealthy position, then take time to discuss this carefully and seek the advice of your veterinarian or other professional.
