Finding the right new kitten is about as great as… well, coming home with a kitten! Is there anything to compare a furry bundle of joy to?
But kittens grow into cats, and what kind of cat best suits your household? One with lots of fur to brush and a penchant for napping in your lap? Or a cat who’ll hardly ever need to see a comb and who prefers to use your bookshelf as a jungle gym? Perhaps you’re looking for a talkative cat, or one that’s known for their ability to be trained to do tricks?
