Choosing a cat for the first time is a truly wonderful experience. Sometimes it's easy; your future pet may even "choose" you. Maybe she's a stray who shows up on your doorstep, or a kitten you find all alone in your yard. Perhaps his welcoming paw reaches out through cage bars as you wander the local animal rescue. In a single moment, your life changes for the better-you’ve found your perfect furry friend. Picking a feline companion on your own may not be as easy, but it's just as much fun.
