Breed Characteristics

Each cat breed has certain characteristics. Although every cat is unique, certain breeds tend to be more inquisitive, lively, placid, vocal, or gentle than others. Veterinarians, cat-fancy clubs, pet stores, and cat shows are good sources of information about the personalities of various breeds. When selecting a kitten, use similar criteria as selecting a dog. The kitten should be neither too shy nor too aggressive. A healthy kitten actively seeks affection from people. Cats are easily housebroken and fastidious, and they don't have to be walked. For these reasons, many apartment owners and condominium associations allow their residents to keep cats.

  • "he Coastal Animal hospital are lifesavers for my Toby. 2 years ago he was having trouble walking and in pain. She helped my dachshund Who is 16 have an alternative to surgery. She has him running and living a full life after acupuncture, laser and now routine chiropractic treatment. Thank you Dr. Ferris and staff for saving my Toby. You all are angels."

  • "I brought my puppy, Cherie, for her first well puppy visit yesterday. Dr. Evans and the staff at Coastal Animal Hospital are excellent! I wanted to give my puppy the best holistic care and Dr. Evans was very knowledgeable and compassionate about my concerns. I am very happy with her treatment plan to keep my puppy healthy, along with helping to keep immunization shots to a minimum! Thank you for excellent care!!"
