Cats are easy pets to own and maintain – they require little from you except attention, and make loving companions. Cuddling up to a purring cat can make you feel loved, and help you to forget a difficult day.

Before you make the commitment to get a cat, you need to consider a few things to make sure you don’t regret your decision.

  • Cats usually live for more than 15 years. Are you prepared to make a long-term commitment?
  • Make sure you can afford the necessary vaccinations, food, litter, toys, pet registration and insurance.
