Cat Buying Tips for Garrett Haley

Since Garrett Haley didn't make it far into the American Idol competition last year, I'd thought I would give him and those in his situation some helpful advice. For one, the kid needs a pet. I think a Cat would be great for Garrett, so here is some of my best Cat buying tips.

Next, I'll probably give Garrett Haley some fashion tips, but for now, let's get this boy a Cat so he can have something to take care of other than his hair and clothes! Dude, seriously, a Cat is just what you need! Just be sure to take into account these cat buying tips before you head out to get one!

These days there are over 70 distinct cat breeds, which are recognized through cat registries. There are several registries that will recognize around 40 breeds or so, as they exclude the more domestic breeds such as tigers. There are also many variations as well, including wild cats that have longer hair.

There are some cat breeds who have roots going back quite a bit in history. Some Japanese breeds, such as the Japanese Bobtail, can be traced back more than 1,000 years in history. These cats were very common and well known throughout Medieval Japan. Now days though, they are all but a myth throughout Japan and the entire world.

The more common cat breeds that are found in North America include the alley cat, long haired cat, and Persian cat. Siamese cats are also common, although they are well known to be destructive and to have a foul temper. Persian cats are very popular, proving to be loving companions. Persian cats can be very expense, depending on where you get it and what type of Persian cat it is.

Alley cats are the most common in North America. There are actually several different breeds, although most of us just refer to them as alley cats. They make good pets, although there are literally thousands of them in existence. Cats are known to breed more than any other pet, and they will continue to breed until they are stopped. Alley cats are among the most bred, as there are hundreds of thousands of cats that are homeless - and have nothing to do but breed.

The look of the cat is the easiest way to tell what breed he or she may be. Some people choose to go by color, although color isn’t as easy to identify. Different breeds of cats have different looks, such as the Siamese and Persian cats. Siamese cats are almost always black, and easy to identify by their color and their eyes. Persian cats on the other hand, are easily identified by their body type and their hair.

I'm not sure that Garrett would be a good match for a Siamese or Persian cat. No, Garrett needs an Alley Cat because it would have an opposite personality than him. Opposites attract, right?

I'm sure he can pick one up in the local pound or at the Humane Society. He really needs a hobby like this, I think it would give his life a whole nother direction. So whether you're Garrett Haley or an Average Joe, use these Cat buying tips when you decide to buy your next Cat.
