the course of your feline's life. In far too many cases, people give
up their cat because they do not understand their basic behaviours
and needs or because of "lifestyle" changes that are beyond their
control. Please do help educate others about each species or breed before they get a cat and caution them to only get a cat if they can commit to
that responsibility for the lifetime of the animal.
