We must admit that it is not at all easy to live with our cat. Especially when we do not know certain rules that allow us to understand its actions.
Want to adopt a cat? This article will be useful to you.
There is a lot to said in the field of feline psychology. The truth is that the cat is still an enigma in the world of pets.
The first step is to choose a cat, right?
Unfortunately, cat owners do not know much about this species. From here there are countless conflicts in the family or with your cat. Not infrequently the verdict being: “this cat has to leave the house”.
Want to adopt a cat? Before taking a cat, try to self-evaluate in light of the following considerations.
Be honest with yourself and if you don’t think you can understand, endure and live with a cat, you better give up. In this case, my advice is to take a turtle, a fish tank, a hamster. Any other more docile living thing that will bring you the much-desired relaxation.
Tips for those who want a pet
You have concluded that a pet in the house would be welcome, after good thought. You, your child or another family member wants this. Nothing is more beautiful and praiseworthy than this intention. But from this phase to ,,catastrophe” in the family is only one step.
If you do not choose discerningly the animal you will bring into the house, you will only increase the rate of abandoned animals.
Have you decided to adopt a cat?
Be honest and admit that you made calculations like: ,,A cat eats less than a dog; I don’t have to take her for a walk in the morning and the evening; it is extremely clean; Maybe he’ll even catch a mouse. “
I’m not saying you were wrong. I say you only saw the pink part ”of the phenomenon called the cat.
If you have decided to adopt a cat and you feel attracted to this species, meditate on the following and ask yourself if you are ready to accept that:
1. A cat will always claim to treat you as being equal to you!
YES! This is the basic axiom in living with a cat. If you can’t accept or understand it or if you find this statement at least shocking, convinced that you will not be able to make a friendship with a cat. She will never accept a master-slave relationship. Maybe he will sometimes give the impression that he accepts your authority if he sees you too nervous or disturbed. Do this just to make you feel better. Not in any case because she convinced of your authority.
The relationship of subordination you want if you dream of imposing your authority in front of someone you will get if you take a dog. It will “pamper” you with boundless gratitude, for every corner of the bread or a simple caress.
Therefore, when referring to the owner of a cat (owner in the legislative sense), its most correct designation can made with the term “friend”, and not “owner”.
2. Only if your cat is in a good mood and has a mood, will he accept your expressions of affection!
Many of us, even if we don’t have a dog, have seen that it is enough for the owner to make a simple gesture and the animal is already at his feet. With a look that begs for affection. A simple caress is enough and the dog radiates happiness, rolling with its belly up.
Do not expect such gestures from a cat. Only in a certain situation: if the feeling is mutual and if it is well-disposed of! In this situation, it will give you a “recital” that will disconnect you. When it spins, the effect will be calming and relaxing.
In conclusion, do not surprised if you want to caress your cat when you return from work, it will run frowning to hide under the couch. She’s probably upset that you left her alone all day. She will pass by and come alone to caress herself, (especially if it is mealtime) and, in the kitchen, you will surely make peace.
3. A cat can create small inconveniences and even small damages in the household!
You adopted a cute little kitten. In addition to the joys it brings you, he found it appropriate to sharpen his claws in the upholstery of the new furniture, bought with great sacrifices. Or who, in an excess of energy, runs in a mad rush through the whole house. It stops somewhere up in a gallery. He got there by climbing on the freshly washed curtain. However, it needs to replaced because it looks pathetic.
Your precious Galle vessel, Daum Nancy, or your grandmother’s crystal vase, which you held dear, fell from a height and turned into hundreds of shards! It was certainly not an earthquake. Your kitten boyfriend tried to do less successful acrobatics! Don’t be angry with him or punish him. He didn’t do it on purpose! If those who have a dog put all the fragile objects somewhere high, this measure is useless in the case of a playful cat.
The time has passed and here your kitten has reached the age of “puberty”. He surrounded by the most unstoppable calls of nature. Isn’t it so that you found in the morning, before leaving for work, your only pair of shoes “scented” and sprinkled with the urine of the much-loved cotton ?!
In the middle of the night, your cute cat wakes up the whole block with heartbreaking meows, for no apparent reason! Worried, you immediately call the vet and find out that your favorite is doing nothing but shouting at her partner ?! Don’t bother this time either, fortunately, they all have a remedy. (sterilization or castration).
4. The cat has some fundamental character traits. She is: independent, capricious, curious.
These characterizations can continue, but I say stop here. If you can accept and understand them, everything is perfect. If not, you need to think twice before taking a cat home.
Cat – unique!
I don’t want you to misunderstand me: these are not arguments against the decision to take a cat. Nothing compares to the elegance, refinement and sweetness of such a companion. The above is only a warning to those who have never had a cat in their life. But they desperately want one.

It does not cost extra if you buy through my site.
It is not necessary for everything presented to happen. It all depends on the individual factor. Each individual is unique. One cannot draw universally valid conclusions for the whole cat nation.
Of course, otherwise, the problem arises for those who live at home and have a yard that they can make available to the cat. In this case, already many of the inconveniences presented above disappear, but others appear instead. First of all, it is ideal to be able to secure the yard so that the cat cannot escape. Be safe.
I do not recommend taking a cat for the child, if he is not at least 8-10 years old (girls) and 12-14 years old (boys). The situation changes when the cat is already in the house at the time the baby is born.
It known that a child who grows up with a cat unquestionably develops certain qualities, later becoming an exceptional adult in many ways. The rate of offenders from children who grew up and loved a cat is almost zero.
Here are enough arguments to weigh the pros and cons in the balance of your decision. It should mentioned, of course, that the cat is an animal with an extremely complex personality, capable of even contradictory feelings. They manifest simultaneously, which makes it perhaps more attractive and fascinating. The characteristic psychology of these species based on a very good knowledge of the laws governing the behavior of cats.
The cat is not a wild animal. She has numerous group interactions. Both with humans and with other cats or animals of other species, with which it comes into permanent or temporary contact.
