Take a look online and you’ll soon discover cats are incredibly popular. Forget celebrity selfies –
people are more interested in seeing pictures of cute cats and kittens.
Despite their huge online popularity, cats have a reputation as being somewhat solitary,
independent and often moody creatures. However, according to some experts this is an unfair and
often untrue judgement.
So, here are five reasons why cats make perfect pets.
1. They can be extremely loving
If you want a pet that’s loving, friendly and loyal then a cat is the perfect choice. While there are
inevitably some cats out there which do prefer their own company, there are many more that prefer
to be part of a loving family. They thrive in a family unit and are extremely affectionate.
2. They get rid of unwanted pests
If you’re not the bravest of people when it comes to getting rid of spiders and other bugs, a cat can
come in really useful. They are natural born predators and as featured on Animal Planet; your cat
has no problem climbing a wall to get rid of a spider in its web.
3. They’re cheaper
Compared to dogs, cats are much cheaper to own. Not only are they cheaper to purchase, they are
also cheaper to feed and maintain. As pet insurance is often based on the size of the pet; cat
insurance from More Than is often a lot more affordable than dog insurance too.
4. They smell nicer and are a lot cleaner
There’s no getting away from the fact that dogs smell, especially if they’ve been out in the rain. They
also create quite a lot of mess wherever they go. Cats on the other hand are very clean animals; they
don’t tend to smell and take much better care of themselves.
5. You don’t need to walk them
Another advantage of owning a cat is the fact you don’t need to take them on daily walks. You
simply open the door and let them explore on their own. They can also be left alone for longer
periods of time than a dog, so they’re ideal for those who are out at work all day.
These are just five reasons why cats make perfect pets. Of course, you should always be 100% sure
you can take on the responsibility before bringing one into your home.
Back in May I shared a review of the Meowbox: a box of cat treats and toys direct to your door. So many readers asked when they would be shipping to the UK and I have great news – they’ve just started doing so!
Here’s a glimpse of the October box. To read more or to order your own visit the Meowbox website.
Moo is still enjoying all of the toys and treats!
Despite this very cat-centric post, I love both our canine and feline friends.
Are you a dog person or a cat person, or like me – both?
