The cat who inspired it all

Jackson the blind cat inspired a business that helps beloved cats everywhere. As Jackson got older, his eye sight took a turn for the worst, making it difficult for him to find the litter box. He eventually went blind. Not only was this uncomfortable for Jackson, but our family as well. As Jackson continued to LG struggle making his way to the litter box, we were constantly right behind him cleaning up. However, this wasn't enough of a reason to give up. He wasn't just a cat, he was part of our family. He rode along on family trips and made lasting impressions on everyone he met. Refusing to give up on our blind companion, we knew something had to be done---Litter Getter was born.

How to choose a right cat breed

 

Be it kitten or a cat, there is a big difference when it comes to making a choice on the type of cat you want to get. There are a few aspects to making this choice:

 

  • Personality

Cats, like dogs, can be active, calm, curious, affectionate, or isolated. With alley cats you never know what you are going to get when they grow out of their kitten stage. Pure breeds usually have somewhat predictable characters, but again, each and every cat has its own personality. Say you want a specifically laid back and passive cat, you might want to consider getting a grown up cat instead of a kitten, so you won’t have to face any surprises. If you strongly desire to buy a pure breed, make sure you do some research on that breed instead of just picking one by its cuteness. It’s not that hard, there are only 43 official cat breeds.

  • Fur

Some cats shed more than others. If you don’t feel like taking your cat to the groomer, you might want to stick with a short-haired kitty. Cats with long-fur usually require regular trips to the groomer. However, if you and your cat’s personalities work out well, but you can’t stand the furriness, it can be shaved off – problem solved.

  • Family

If you have toddlers in your house, and would like to get a cat, it would be best if you’d get a grown up. With kittens, you have to look out for both the cat and your kids. Adult cats usually don’t have any troubles getting away from kids if they don’t wish to be petted, and they are more tolerant, unlike kittens, when they just aren’t as fast, but they may get furious or defensive and accidently scratch your child.

 

I hope this helps to make a choice of your life long purring companion. If not, here is a short interactive quiz that can be a great tool when it comes to making a decision:   http://www.selectsmart.com/plus/select.php?url=catmatch
