Want to adopt a cat ? What you need to know

Bringing your cat home: Make sure you have a pet travel bag or a sturdy carrier for the car ride home. Holding the cat on your lap is a very bad idea, and a dangerous one. Even if he’s calm enough to sit in someone’s lap, nothing will stop him from bolting the second the car door opens. It’s really not worth the risk.

Find a vet: If you don’t already have a vet, now would be the time to find one. You don’t want to start running around when the cat’s not feeling well. It’s also good to know where the local emergency hospital is, just in case.

Pet sitters: If you had to go away suddenly, who would you call to care for the cat? Start thinking, and asking around. Checking out some professional pet sitters will also come in handy.

Supplies: Buy supplies such as a litter box, litter, food and water bowls, scratching post, brush, nail clippers, bed and a couple of toys

Food:Give your cat the same food he’s been eating. If you want to switch brands, by all means, just do it gradually to avoid any stomach issues.

Cat proofing the house: Some cats get into everything, others don’t. Since you probably don’t know which category yours falls into, it’s safer to be cautious until you do know. Don’t leave things like rubber bands, ribbon, string, cords, or wires lying around
