Having a household pet has always been something that most homes in the United States seem accustomed to. However, there is some serious debate as to which household pet is preferable. One school of thought says that cats are better pets while another seem to think that dogs are better.
This age old argument doesn’t look like it would be be resolved anytime soon as both sides have a strong case for their convictions. Feline lovers however will be quick to point out cats are better pets than dogs and here are some reasons why.
- Cats Aren’t Demanding
Unlike dogs, cats really don’t need you to frequently pet, cuddle or maybe talk to them. As a matter of fact they prefer their space and this gives you enough time to do your own stuff, right?!
- Cats Are Naturally Home Trained
If you have a dog as a pet it would be wise to get it home trained. Cats on the other hand are instinctively tuned to act properly in a home, they know how to kneel, sit and even seek favours.
- You Don’t Have To Take Your Cat Outside For Long Walks
Yep! Your cat is no dog and does not require you to take it for long walks. So you don’t have to buy a leash either.
- Cats Aren’t Going To Nag You
While there are pet dog owners who like it when their pet dog gives them that puppy dog look in order to appeal to their good side, other pet owners aren’t too keen on their pets nagging them for a treat. Your cat will basically take what it wants no questions asked, cool right?!
- Your Cat Will Let You Know When It’s Hungry
Your cat will be aggressive and very vocal if you fail to feed it when you should while dogs may just keep to themselves and generally look downcast.
- Cats Will Basically Sort Themselves Out
Cats will sort themselves out, they don’t need you to pamper them with food, they can manage on their own quite well.
- Cats Always Remember Their Owners!
Cats have a tendency of saying thank you by leaving a treat by your doorway, well if you don’t mind geckos, rats, frogs and lizards.
- Cats Are Clean Pets
While you can house train your pet dog, they won’t keep potentially dangerous items out of harms way, well cats would!
- No Noise From Your Cat
Cats are quite discrete and can live with you without making much noise, other than the occasional scratching noise from the sharpening of their claws on your furniture.
- No Yucky Licking From Your Cat
Your cat will not lick your face at every slightest opportunity except of course you have sardine oil on it, yummy!
So next time you are seriously thinking of getting a household pet you may want to consider getting yourself a cat, as you can see you will get more mileage from your feline companion as you really don’t need to do much, only feed them!
