Should I buy a kitten or adopt an older cat?
In most cases, I would advise you to adopt rather than a shop. If you’re really keen to raise a kitten, then there are lots of abandoned kittens that are looking for homes that you can adopt. Although it can be tempting to purchase a purebred cat as a kitten, it really is a waste of money when there are so many older cats and kittens that need a home.
In some cases, it’s also a good idea to choose older cats over kittens as kittens can be quite high maintenance. When my cat was young, I found it hard to choose the right foods and get her into a good routine. However, with the help of the internet and sites like friendlyclaws.com, I managed to find what she needed. However, if you don’t have the time to invest in caring for a dependent kitten, then an older cat is probably a better option.
