When a Cat Chooses YOU!

I've heard and read in several places that you should let your pet choose you rather than the other way around. This is not always possible. However, sometimes when you have a choice, just sit back and see which one comes and interacts with you. You'll find this will be a much more satisfying relationship for both you and the pet.

What do cats look for in potential rescuers? Of course, it's impossible to know for sure, but I've come up with a few things that they might consider. See what you think!

1. Your Resume

This will probably be the first requirement, so brush the dust off your resume and bring it up to date.

Why do they think that way? Well, after all,

2. Eating Arrangements

Two things to remember here. You need to be available when THEY are hungry and you need to have the right kind of food.

If those requirements aren't met, you might have a situation like this:

3. Playtime

Younger cats love to play and can be entertained by simple things, such as boxes. The important thing to remember is that playtime can be anytime in a 24-hour period!

At times, they prefer playing by themselves.

Sometimes, they want to play with other animals.

As with humans, things can go wrong. Your cat may develop this attitude:

4. Sleeping Arrangements

Cats will sleep where they are comfortable; this may or may not be where you want them to sleep.

There will be days when your new cat will be very happy with you and the service you provide.

Other days, not so much!

Getting everything together and working well will be beneficial for both you and your pet. Just remember:

What do you think of these requirements from a cat? Seems pretty reasonable considering my cats. :) Let me know what you think.
