Even though we know that a cat can survive without us, if we have already taken it to our home we should take that responsibility on ourselves, provide it with the necessary comfort and care, to take care of its diet and its health.
One very important item that is often overlooked at first glance at the cute little kitten we so wish we had ………… is the financial issue. Not only if you bought a racial cat and paid for it, but if you decided on a domestic cat, its care, food, and especially its health and regular vaccination costs a certain amount of money to plan your budget.
Cats live on average 15 years, some longer, racial cats maybe shorter. Life expectancy depends in part on where they live, freely or in the home, how they feed, or how we feed them, and in large part on how predisposed they are [genetically] to various diseases. This last factor is very important for all those who are conscientiously involved in the breeding of racial cats. A domestic cat is inherently healthy, or more resilient, than a racial cat, so no one looks at it for possible hereditary diseases.
Cats living in an apartment should live as naturally as possible, to allow them to contact other cats, it is even better to keep the two cats together. Of course, if you only have one room at your disposal, it would be a real torture to guard any animal. The cat still needs a little more room, and if the two are together, they need so much that they can move away from each other so that each has its own corner.
