Do you live in an apartment and want to adopt a cat ?
In general, cats have a reputation for being particularly free-spirited animals, in the sense that they like to hang out as they see fit. However, there are exceptions in the domestic feline world. Indeed, some cats prefer the security, tranquility, and comfort of the home. They adapt to most lifestyles, including in an apartment.
These cats also tend to be more discreet and less active than their peers. However, this does not mean that they do not need any activity. They too must be able to exercise, whether alone, in interaction with members of their family or through their accessories: cat tree, toys …
