Are You Ready to Adopt a Cat
Yes! Bring on the kitties!

Whether you want the sage friendship of a mature cat or the excitable company of a kitten, you possess all the time, patience, and love to adopt a new feline friend! You have the financial security and emotional maturity to commit to caring for another creature for its entire life. You understand that keeping a cat - or any pet, really - requires an investment in all of your resources, and you are prepared to take on all of the downs in order to enjoy all of the ups.
Yes, but with one small caveat...

At this point, your life is full, busy, and sometimes hectic. Bringing a feline companion into your environment could very well be just the thing to help soften the edges of all of that craziness. But adopting a kitten may just add to the craziness. Instead, you might want to consider bringing home a more mature kitty. Adult cats often require less training, are more independent, and tend to be infinitely calmer. Though there are many joys to be had from raising a baby, your life might be better enriched by the staid presence of a wise, established feline.
Not quite yet.

All right, I know... this is a little disappointing. But you must remember, keeping a cat in your home is a serious business. After all, it's a whole other life that requires your time, energy, and love. Although you will no doubt be able to provide plenty of love, at the moment, your own life might be a little too hectic for you to be able to invest enough energy into a new feline companion. But don't give up! With some tweaks to your schedule, a little clearing out of time, or a few adjustments to your lifestyle, you'll be ready to adopt a cat in no time! If you're still itching for the company of a kitty, perhaps you might consider fostering. This allows you a good deal more flexibility than adoption, and might be a better fit for you at this time.
