When you think of a pet, what is the first animal that comes to mind? A dog? A cat? For many people, the answer is a cat. In Canada, there are over 33 million cats living in homes. And while dogs are still the most popular pet overall, there has been a recent trend of people adopting larger cats as house pets. From lions and tigers to leopards and cougars, large cats make fascinating companions. If you’re interested in adding one of these majestic creatures to your family, there are a few things you should know about adoption options and caretaking requirements.

If you’re interested in adopting a large cat, your best bet is to do some research and find an organization near you that specializes in these animals. Most of these organizations require adopters to have experience with big cats, as they can be dangerous if not properly cared for.

If you’re thinking about adopting a large cat, it’s important to do your research first.

How to make wild cats feel like home
Wild cats can be a little scary, but they’re also really interesting. I have this idea to make them feel more at home by decorating the house with their favorite things from around the yard or even outside!
The first thing you should do is get an inside loan of catnip so that when these wild animals roam into your living space-they will enjoy themselves immensely on top off everything else too (and maybe fall asleep). From there it’s just about adding whatever personal touches come naturally: pictures/posters hung up high near where window coverings meet walls; knickknacks arranged creatively throughout.
Feral/Free-roam territory – Make sure there is enough space available (at least 3 feet throughout), clean up any spilled food before introducing them hunt and play time – provide toys that predators will enjoy playing with like empty boxes tied together using rope.
