|Lola and Zoe-champions of lazing about!|
1.) Support from friends and/or family. When we have long breaks, like winter break and summer, the cats travel with us. Big thanks to my parents who are willing to keep them while we travel. Also, having friends that will check up on your cats for a week or so is really helpful.
2.) Money in the bank. In all seriousness, having some emergency funds is a good idea. An unexpected vet visit can set you back a few hundred dollars.
3.) Youth, time, or both. Ha! Really though, if you adopt a kitten or puppy, things won't "settle down" for about a year. Older animals might be a better match for someone with less energy or patience.
4.) A good camera to capture all the cuteness:
Happy 4th Birthday Lola and Zoe! You make our lives purr-fect :)
