If you want to own a cat, you also need to take care of its basic needs beyond food, water, and a litter box. You also need to make your home a fun place for your cat to live in.
One way to do this involves increasing your cat’s vertical space such as posts that it can climb and sleep in. Also consider getting perches near a window so your cat can watch the world go by. You want your cat to stay stimulated so look for ways to keep it happy that won’t break your bank account in the process.
