Keep your cat or kitten happy, healthy and safe.


When choosing a specific breed, it is important to understand why this breed was developed. For example, some breeds, such as Bengals, are extremely active and intelligent, and will need a lot of enrichment.

All breeds have different characteristics, so make sure you choose a pet that is appropriate to your lifestyle. Many breeds have inherited health problems which may need veterinary intervention and will incur ongoing costs. In reality, a crossbreed cat may be more robust and have the best of the breeds. Remember that cats can live for more than 20 years, so owning one is a long-term commitment.
