Are Cats Good Christmas Presents?
Not everyone can provide good homes for cats and other pets. In addition to the costs for food and vet care, they need daily attention, clean litter boxes, love and a safe environment. Instead of surprising someone with a cat for Christmas, get their feedback. Not everyone is ready for the responsibilities that comes with living with cats. If they are good candidates, take them to the shelter or a responsible breeder and let them meet and choose the cat they connect with. Many cats and dogs are abandoned and surrendered to shelters after the holidays because people thought they’d make good presents.
