It’s easy to fall in love with a cat. It’s much harder to take care of one. So the next time someone wants to adopt a cat without having owned one before, take a moment to let them know what they’ll need.

First, you’ll need a litter box. Then you’ll need bowls for food and water. You’ll also need a scratching post and toys to keep your cat amused.
