All cats have different personalities, in the same way that humans do. Some are content to be handled, making them the perfect pet for children or older people.
Others will shy away from attention, only interacting when they choose to. If you’re unsure how to choose a cat, consider whether you’d like an energetic of playful pet, or whether you’d be more compatible with a cat that spends its time curled up asleep!
When visiting our branches and centres, you’ll get a good idea of what each cat is like from their descriptions, or by talking to some of the volunteers and staff that look after them.
How can I choose a cat that is right for my family?
Do you have children at home, or even other pets? Are you concerned about the best cat for a busy family? Choosing a cat that will suit your circumstances is vital.
Getting a cat for the first time
If you have other pets in your home, think carefully about whether they are likely to get on with a new cat. Consider your animals’ ages, personalities and previous experiences.
