There are about 40 recognized breeds of cats, which account for only four percent of the cat population. The rest are mixed-breed. If you're planning on entering your cat in shows or other competitions, expect to pay several hundred dollars for a purebred. If you just want love and companionship, a mixed breed may be a good choice. Millions of cats are put to sleep each year because there's no one to adopt them. Kittens are adorable, of course, but take a lot more time and energy to train. Consider adopting an adult cat, whose personality has already been established. They generally adapt easily to a new owner. An animal shelter should be the first place to look. You can find a pet there for a reasonable cost, and save it from death in the process. Individuals with too many kittens will often advertise them for free. Just remember that there's no such thing as a free cat. Food, litter, toys, and vaccinations will cost you over a hundred dollars a year. In choosing a cat, spend a few minutes getting to know each other. Cats have definite personalities, and you want one that fits you. After all, the two of you could be spending the next fifteen years together.
