How to Be An Awesome Cat Parent

Tags,,
Cats may be cute and cuddly, but they also can be a challenge to care for, especially if they are indoors all the time. Felines are natural hunters and get bored easily, so they have a tendency to be curious. That can cause some problems, like when they decide to scale your curtains to get a better view of your living room.

When you understand a cat’s basic needs, you can raise a healthy pet and live with them in harmony.
