New to the forum, don't have a cat - yet!

I'm currently gathering some info before I make my move.. I want to gather some opinions on whether I'm right for a cat, and what cat will be right for me!

Ohhh you're a smart girl! I wish more prospect owners were like you.

What exactly has made you interested in getting a kitty? In other words, what do you hope to get out of it, and what do you expect a kitty to be able to give you? For that matter..what do you expect to offer to a cat?

Welcome If you aren't too particular on getting a pedigreed cat (expensive!), then the best way to pick out the right cat is to start hanging out at your local shelter. You can see which cat(s) you get along with, the staff can tell you their temperaments, and you will be helping a kitty in need. Some shelters even have foster programs that you can adopt from, and those cats will usually be much more socialized. Good luck!

Welcome...you're wise to do a lot of research in advance, since a cat is a commitment for a very long time. Good luck in your search!
