Here at The Right Fluff we love both cats and dogs equally, but some people just have preferences. Are you a cat person? If not, here are some reasons why maybe you should be! Below you will find 4 reasons why a cat can make the most wonderful companion. In fact, some might even say they are purrrrrfect.
Owning a Cat Might Lift Your Spirits
That’s right, according to some research, people who watch cat videos actually have been found to have increased positive emotions. So imagine what it would be like if you had a cat of your own? Adding a cat to your life can provide you with emotional benefits by showing you affection. Many cats demonstrate their love and affection by rubbing their cheek on your head or rubbing up against your legs. Having a pet cat can give your life purpose and meaning.
Cats Do Well in Small Homes and Apartments
If you live in a small house or apartment that just can’t accommodate large pets or dogs that need more space to run and play, a cat may be the ideal pet. As long as cats are provided an enriching environment with toys and scratching posts, most cats are able to adapt to smaller living spaces. Not only that, but many cats are quiet. A quieter pet is much easier to handle in an apartment where you share your walls with other residents.
Cats are Better for the Environment
That’s right, you heard it here first. If you are an environmental activist, or simply concerned about your carbon footprint, there are studies indicating that it is actually better to own a cat than a dog. They groom themselves, so you don’t have to frequently take them to the groomer.
Cats are Independent
For those who work long hours outside of the house, or don’t have the time or energy for multiple daily walks, cats make a great companion that also require less attention and energy. Although cats love attention, many cats are content to spend long hours in solitude sunbathing, sleeping, or looking out the window.
For those of you who know and love them, you know the joys and benefits of owning a cat. They are fantastic pets for apartments, affordable, independent, and loving. A great family pet or for someone living alone, cats make fantastic friends. These are only a few of the many reasons why cats make absolutely wonderful companions.
