At Petland, we love all of our cats, dogs, and small animals in our care.
December is Cat Lovers Month. In celebration, we've put together 5 reasons why owning a cat is awesome and the way to go!
They're Pretty Self Sufficient
One of the greatest reasons people love cats is because of their self-sufficiency. They are incredibly low maintenance and very independent. Unlike dogs who normally require daily walks, exercise, and baths, cats can do all of the above themselves. There's no need for walks. They can get their required exercise from zipping about in their homes.
No Bath Time Required
Cats clean themselves. Period. Every once in a while some will require a bit of cleaning and tidying up, but for the most part, they take care of their hygiene effortlessly. This applies to outdoor cats, too. Cats are mostly indoor animals so you needn’t worry about them jumping in mud and things of that nature. They don't fancy it and lucky for you!
They Add Love to Your Home
There is no doubt one of the main reasons people become pet owners is because of an innate love or affinity for them. Cats bring tons of love into the home. They are wonderful pets and companions.
Unlike dogs, cats are not typically loud animals. They are relatively quiet animals. Sure, they'll meow every now and then, but they don't bark or snore, or even make noise when they walk. With dogs, you'll hear their nails on non-carpeted floors or you'll hear them playing. Cats inadvertently get the sneaky title because of their quiet and almost stealth mode movements.
Housebreaking is Easy
Forget about potty training your cat, because they are really good at learning this on their own. Provide them a litter box and kitty litter and they're likely to just start going there. They like to have their own space and privacy. Of course, no animal is perfect so they may have an accident or spiteful incident every once in a while!
