Adopt A Pet For Christmas
Are you able to adopt a pet for Christmas instead of buying one? Christmas time is an especially bad time for pet cats and dogs. Many cats and dogs are bought as gift and summarily disposed in a matter of weeks and months. Christmas can also be a season of hope for animals which are rescued from the streets. If they can be adopted by those who are able to care for pet cat and dog properly.
Pet Ownership Is A Life Long Commitment
First thing to consider is whether you are ready for the commitment. Keeping pet cat and dog is a life long commitment. You must be prepared to take care of your pet for the duration of it's life.
Pet Adoption Is A Family Affair
Just as you should not buy on impulse, you need to consider pet adoption carefully. Your family members must be consulted. Discuss with them what sort of pet is suitable for the household. Who should be responsible for caring for the pet cat or dog must be made clear. If you adopt a pet cat or dog but you are not away from home the whole day, somebody in your family would have to provide care for the pet.
Make It A Season Of Hope
If you are able to adopt a pet, why not adopt one this Christmas. Many animals are abandoned each month. These animals also breed while on the street, so the animal shelters cannot possibly cope with the problem. By adopting a pet cat or dog, you are help to offload the strain on the animal shelter. You can give an animal a chance at a good life instead of being put to sleep, thereby saving a life.
If you need to travel anywhere and have to leave your pet cat with somebody. Do inform your helper about these precautions as well. Remind them to stow away electrical cables properly. Your cat may chew on them and harm itself.
Look Beyond The Pedigree
Saving a life means not caring whether the animal is a purebred or mixed breed, or whether it is a young kitten or puppy. You should look for an animal which is suitable for your household. It may well be a mixed bred, adult animal. Choose an animal which suits your house, your personality and the demands of your lifestyle.
It is Christmas. Are you able to adopt a pet and save a life?
