Sharing Cat Care

Sharing Cat Care
My sister and I share a cat. I'm the one who takes care of it, and she just plays with it. How can I get her to help?

Reply from the Highlights Editors
It might help to make a chart listing everything that has to be done to take care of the cat. On the chart, list who is responsible for each duty on each day. For example, on some days you might be in charge of feeding the cat and providing fresh water. Your sister could be in charge of cleaning the litter box on those days. Each of you can put a check mark on the chart when your tasks have been completed.

Best wishes,
