What to consider when adopting?

Since it is a serious commitment, there are lots of things to consider when adopting a dog or cat.

Cats are definitely easier, but you still need to consider couple of things.  The most important one is probably if you are thinking of an inside cat or not. Inside cats need a litter box, so you have to think where to place it and have in mind that you have to clean it frequently. Inside/outside cats can be trained so you would not need a litter box, but you need to think about your cat’s safety (predators in the area, traffic of vehicles, etc.).

When adopting a dog, you have to consider size of the dog and activity level. Small dogs are easy to keep inside, but have in mind the hair! Medium and large dogs need larger areas – do you have a fence yard? Do you have time to train the dog? What about grooming?
