Many people prefer owning a dog rather than a cat for the reason that dogs are easy to teach compared to cats, people tend to think that dogs are easy to communicate with and bring lots of joy.

People tend to ask as well what makes cats great pets to own?

  • There are points to prove why cats can be a great pet to own one of them is that they are low maintenance, the reason why they are considered to be low maintenance is that you do not have to walk them every day like dogs regarding the activity you can always come up with something such as playing with laser for them to catch and chase or try to tickle them. And, they don't need big space! Which makes them perfect to be in an apartment or city living.

  • Cats are quiet, some cats do like to meow very loud but most of them are quiet, there must be a reason why they keep meowing it could be them asking for your attention to give them a cuddle, or asking you to play with them, hungry or they do not like being woken up from their naps!

But, you have to remember that spending time with your cats is important as well although they are independent! it can create an amazing bond between the two of you!

  • They keep your house pest-free from mice or insects! It is not a secret anymore that they have the urge to hunt that is why sometimes if they see something either insects or mice they tend to catch it and bring them somewhere that you don't even know! However, funny things could happen such as they could bring the insects or mice that they hunt to you and consider it as a 'gift'!
