Dr. Kath Miller: Hi! I am Dr. Kath Miller of the ASPCA, and we are talking about how to prepare for and care for your newly adopted cat. Before you bring your new kitty home, it's a very good idea to line up all of the services and professionals that you may need after you bring your cat home.
Talk to family and friends for recommendations for a local veterinarian, for a cat sitter, a local pet supply store, and also investigate pet health-care insurance. This can be a very good money saver if your cat should become sick or injured after adoption.
Finally, get the number for the Animal Poison Control Center handy just in case of emergency. These things will help you be prepared for any situation that might arise after your cat comes home. Next, we'll be talking about bringing a new cat home and helping it to settle in.
