I have to admit that I don’t know much about cats. We don’t have any living in our house or working at the Studio. I do have lots of cat friends on line, especially on petpav.com, so I decided to find out why cats make such good pets.
It seems, although I would dispute this, cats are the most popular pet in the United States. They sure do have a presence on the internet. Grumpy Cat himself has a huge following.
Like dogs, cats make great companions, are entertaining, affectionate and offer unconditional love but they definitely are a whole different species.
2. Come to think of it, cats don’t need to go outside much. They have litter boxes so they get to pee and poop in the house. They don’t have to go outside in the rain or snow or when it’s really dark outside. That could be an advantage for humans who live in the city where they have to go out with their dogs in the rain and snow and really dark nights.
3. Cats are easy to entertain. They are happy just sitting in a sunny window or playing with a laser pointer. But entertaining a dog gives humans exercise. Taking us for walks and playing catch or tug of war is good exercise for dogs and humans.
4. Cats spend a lot of time grooming themselves. Dogs are pretty clean, except for DixieLee who can track dirt across the entire house even when it hasn’t rained in days. And we do like to roll in smelly stuff we find in the yard. Maybe that’s why cats never have to go and get a bath.
