Welcoming a new cat into your home is a momentous occasion and the start of a rewarding pet relationship. Although cats won't require regular walking like dogs do or cleaning of cages or tanks like smaller animals, they do need daily care and attention. You'll also be committing yourself to regular health care that includes basic immunizations and checkups to provide your feline friend with a happy and healthy life. Know what to expect when adopting a cat and you'll be ready for a memorable and positive experience.
