Itâ€™s truly amazing the overwhelming amount of attention a kitten receives from the front window of a pet store. Any kitten or kittens will have little trouble having an endless flow of admirers and potentials owners coming to visit them to oooh and aawwe and literally swoon over.
My son and I where at the mall the other day and couldnâ€™t resist visiting the new kittens in the pet store window. They were just oozing with â€˜cutenessâ€™ and most people, including us, wanted to get one right away.
It was their nap time although one kitten kept waking up each time someone new came to visit. When we got there only two other people were at the window. Seconds later we were surrounded by a crowd of all these new people wanting to see the kittens.
I managed to take some pictures and we had a good visit so it was time to leave and let the other people see them, much to the reluctance of my son.
Iâ€™m sure you have seen your share of new kittens in a pet store window. The immediate urge to buy a kitten because theyâ€™re just so lovable is great, but you have to use a little common sense before you decide to include that kitten in your life.
Seeing those kittens in the window and how easily people were drawn to them made me wonder if they knew what they were getting into. Also, what about the kitten? Were they getting a fair shake or would they end up as yesterdayâ€™s novelty once the kitten grew into a cat?
For those adding another cat to their home, you know what owning a cat is about. But for first time kitten/cat owners (and spontaneous Kitten buyers) there are a few more practical things you need to consider before taking the plunge.
Here is a list of some helpful links that will provide you with some good information and advice youâ€™ll need before you bring that furry ball of joy home.
