A pet can be a great friend and companion, but they can be a real tie too. Busy people are at work all day and when they get the chance, they like to go away for weekends away and longer breaks. Finding someone to mind an animal and look after it is a real bind. Pet sitting costs soon add up.
A cat is a great option for anyone who would love a pet, but doesn’t want an animal that’s too demanding or needy. They like some fuss and attention, but they’re equally happy doing their own thing. They’re independent and pretty self sufficient. They’ll roam the neighbourhood and keep themselves occupied and content while their owners are out all day.
There are still a few important responsibilities involved though. Any owner needs to take good care of their new friend and make sure it has everything it needs for a happy and healthy life. When they’re still little kittens they need their jabs to protect them against common diseases. From time to time they’ll need to go back to the vet for booster shots. Cats are very efficient and skilled hunters. Owners can stop them being quite so successful by fitting a collar with a bell attached. Then there’s diet to think about. This is hugely important.
Finding the right balance for each animal takes a little bit of time, but they’ll soon settle into a regular routine. A mix of wet and dry food gives them a nice balance of biscuit and meat, which contains everything they need to stay healthy and content.
Down at the pet store they have an unrivalled range of foods to choose from, plus staff who can help and advise. It’s so much better than shopping at the supermarket for pet food. Get their nutrition exactly right.
