Is a kitten right for you?

If you're thinking that a kitten would be a great addition to your family; good for you! 

Kittens can be loveable, spunky and active and can make you smile even on the dreariest of days. 

Often times, people are drawn to kittens because they believe that older cats - even those just over a year old - won't love them as much or won't adapt to their household as well as a kitten would. 

In reality, cats of any age can make wonderful pets.  They can form strong, loving relationships with their new families.  And, if the activity level of a kitten seems a bit too much for you - a cat would be just ideal!
