Few Things to Consider Before Adopting a Cat

by Vivek Choudhary Nice life

If you're looking to adopt a cat, consider adopting from a shelter rather than purchasing her from a pet store or breeder. For one thing, it's less expensive. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of a health check, vaccinations and spaying or neutering, all of which are typically done before a cat is placed up cats for free adoption in Dubai.

Many shelters also evaluate cat characteristics, such as temperament, before making her available, and they can help you select a suitable cat for your household, personality, and lifestyle. Shelters also offer various cat characteristics, from young to old, long-haired to short-haired, varying colours, coat patterns, and temperaments.

Many shelters carry a variety of purebred cats. However, with so many cats to choose from, a cat shelter can be a little overwhelming. Here are some guidelines to help you narrow your selection and make the best match.

Consider Your Lifestyle

Before beginning your journey to adopt a cat, it's a good idea to decide what characteristics you want your new kitty to have. For this, it's essential to consider your lifestyle and personality. Do you work full-time, travel a lot, or frequently attend social engagements in the evenings? You should probably opt for an independent and no-fuss cat if this sounds like you. A cuddle bug kitty may be lonely if her human friend is permanently gone.

A highly affectionate or high-energy cat is a great companion for a homebody. Those with ample free time and the virtue of patience can keep up with a rambunctious kitten that will zip around the house, bat toys around, and playfully attack your fingers. If you're looking for a feline friend to share the couch with you at the end of a long day, consider adopting a quiet and loving cat.

Consider your family makeup as well. If you have small children or other pets, for example, you'll need to look for an easy-going, friendly cat that is well-socialized to deal with people and other animals. It might also be best to look for an older cat unless you can provide constant supervision. Kittens, while super cute, are also fragile and prone to injury from grabby little hands or impatient older animals.

Cat Characteristics to Look For

You have several decisions to make when the time comes to pets for free adoption in Dubai. Here are the main things you'll want to consider:

·         Kitten or adult cat: Kittens are hard to resist, and you might have your heart set on one. Keep in mind that kittens are extraordinarily energetic and require a lot of time and patience. A kitten's temperament can also be hard to predict, as it will change as the kitten matures into an adult. If you prefer a cat with specific temperament traits, it's best to choose a mature one.

Pet adoption Dubai cats tend to be calmer and often have the advantage of already being litter box trained, socialized, and acclimated to being members of a household. Also, keep in mind that kittens grow up much more quickly than human babies. Most kittens will reach maturity and become an adult within a year.

·         Temperament and personality: Do you prefer a friendly and outgoing cat or one that keeps more to her? Does she need to get along well with children or other pets, or will she be an only cat? Do you want her to be energetic and playful or calmer and laid back? Would you like her to be talkative, or would you rather she be quiet? These characteristics have a lot more bearing on how happy you'll be with your new kitty than superficial traits like what her coat looks like, so it's essential to determine your preferences before visiting the shelter.


Luckily, shelters encourage you to interact with the cats before adopting them in a cat-designated room. This will help you better determine her temperament. If she is open and apt to playing with toys, she probably is pretty outgoing. If she hides in the corner, she probably will take some time to warm up to you. She is likely a great cuddle buddy if she is very friendly, purring and letting you pet her.


·         Long-haired or short-haired: Long-haired cats are beautiful, but they require a lot of grooming and maintenance. If you don't have time to devote to combing and detangling your kitty's coat regularly, it's probably best to stick to a short-haired variety. Also, long-haired cats tend to have more and larger hairballs from grooming. Just be prepared!


Coat colour: Regardless of hair length, cats shed. If you're someone who has a pristine white or light-coloured living room and wish to keep it that way, you probably wouldn't be happy with a dark-coloured cat. Similarly, if your wardrobe includes a lot of black or navy and you plan to cuddle your kitty, you should probably skip a white or light-coloured cat.
