Summary: Being cat courageous is recognizing the beauty of a cat and then courageously giving them a second chance by adoption. There are many pros and cons to owning a cat. These responsibilities, as with any animal, requires realistic decision-making, then choosing a kitten or an adult feline. No matter which one is chosen, there isn't a high enough praise for being cat courageous.

Cats have a beauty that defines sleekness, stealth and grace. Cats have the ability of a ninja, playfulness of a baby and an independence only they can show. Accepting these qualities which makes up the feline is a joy all cat owners can attest to. Having multiple felines in the house only adds to the joy and fascination of these qualities and personalities. There is an added satisfaction when the owner has the courage to adopt an older cat.

Cats, with all their attitude and personalities, have basic needs that need to be met. Examples of these needs include brushing, claw trimming, feeding and litter box changing. When giving a feline a second chance from an adoption agency, bring a feline brush with you. Brushing a cat can be relaxing for them. You will be able to spend one on one time with your choice of cat and relax them as well. By brushing a cat daily you will help maintain a healthy coat of fur and cut down on hairballs. The second thing to evaluate is whether or not they like their paws being touched. Although this not the act of claw trimming, the touching of paws is half the battle. Another item to evaluate in the basic needs category is whether or not the cat uses a litter box. This can be evaluated by either direct observation or asking the caretakers. The last item in basic needs being met is the diet. This must be asked, as older cats may or may not have special dietary needs because of allergies, or other medical conditions. Of course all these basic needs leads to monetary responsibility.

Even though cats are independent creatures they are by no means a cheap animal to care for. The phrase "cheaper by the dozen" does not apply to cats. Is a kitten or an older cat less expensive? My answer, they are about the same. Either, the kitten or the older cat, have the same basic needs that need to be met. Along with these needs comes the vet bills for the shots that are needed. Should you adopt a cat, not from an agency, the feline will need to be neutered or spayed, ask your vet on how to get a voucher to help off set this cost. Many years of great health can be enjoyed when preventative checkups are given.

Cats can give many years of love, laughter and heartaches. Cats are also a popular animal in people's households. This means there are a lot of articles out there about cats. Think about a question you may have, an there is bound to be an article out in the Internet world or book displays that can give you an answer.

Be cat courageous and look at adopting an older cat as you will be rewarded with personality that only a cat can bring into any household.

Our senior cat, Biskers was adopted when she was 3 years old. Being once an outside cat, she now lives a spoiled lifestyle of being "master" of the house. She doesn't show the slightest hint of wanting to go outside. She owns the couch and demands her brushing daily. She has her "spot" when its dinner time and her after dinner lounging tunnel. Biskers adds royalty to the household by her mannerism and demands.
