Recently we added an addition to our family, a sweet kitty name Markie. We never would have thought of adopting a kitty, but Markie won us over. She did have 2 kittens but we haven’t seen them in weeks. My husband said it was okay for the girls to keep Markie, but she was to be an outside cat. I think he is just making sure Allie is still the princess even though he says he doesn’t like her. The girls love Markie. There is something to be said about hearing a cat purr. It is probably the most comforting sound on Earth. Although Markie found us, we were not prepared to take on a cat. But if you are considering adopting a cat, here are some things to keep in mind.
Stock up on supplies. Buy a litter box if your cat will be inside. Also make sure you have food and water dishes as well as food to fill the dish. Scratching posts and a few toys are a must as well. Go slow when introducing your new fur baby to family and friends as well as to other pets. Markie was very scared of Allie and hissed at her to begin with. But now she likes her, but Allie on the other hand is still scared of her. If your fur baby is going to be inside make sure to remove anything that might be poisonous to them. And lastly schedule an appointment with the vet to get your fur baby checked.
Although Markie is an outside cat, we still love that sweet face and are so happy she has joined our family.
