Are you considering having a pet at home? Maybe you're thinking about having a colorful parrot? Maybe a fluffy dog? Or how about a tank full of beautiful gold fish? If you are undecided on the perfect pet to have, here are 6 reasons why you should consider having a cat.
1. CATS ARE INDEPENDENT
Cats can be left alone at home for hours while we head to work. They will not suffer from separation anxiety nor will they tear down the house in boredom while we are away. You will not need to suffer the guilt of leaving home as they are perfectly adaptable and will sleep their time away while they wait for you to come home. Best part? Some cats will greet you at the door when you return home, as if to say they have missed you.
2. CATS LOVE CLEANLINESS
Cats are known to spend at least one third of their time grooming themselves. They groom themselves immaculately and will do all they can to avoid puddles and dirt. Cats do not have a body odor, unlike dogs, and can smell pleasant even weeks after a bath. Being clean comes naturally to cats and its vital for their general health and happiness.
3. CATS ARE EASILY TOILET TRAINED
Due to the cats' natural inclination to bury their 'business', it is easy to litter box train cats. All it takes to litter box train cats is to put out a litter box (or two), with litter in it. In the wild, cats bury their 'business' to avoid detection from predators and this trait still exists in the domesticated cats. We do not have to spend a great deal of time and suffer countless of accidents to toilet train cats. They get it very quickly once they see a litter box filled with litter.
4. CATS' PURR IS VERY CALMING
Cats purr when they are happy and comfortable. The purring of cats have been linked to lowering stress and has a calming effect. After a long stressful day at work, cuddling with a purring cat is probably one of the best things a cat owner can experience with their feline companion.
5. CATS ARE GREAT ENTERTAINERS
Cats make us laugh a lot with their silly antics and curious behaviour. Playing with them guarantees a great time for both human and cat. Watch as they stalk, hunt and play with their toys. Their crazy actions will never fail to bring a smile to even the most hardened non cat lover. Don't take our word for it. Try playing with a cat and you will understand!
6. CATS ARE GORGEOUS CREATURES
Last but not least, cats are just simply gorgeous creatures who will love you as much as you love them. They are beautiful to look at and great companions to have. Give a cat a home today and you will fall in love with him very quickly, we promise.
