The argument between whether cats are better pets or dogs is quite vehement on social media as well as other parts of the internet. It’s safe to say that most people think very highly of the pets they own, but we are here to make a case for cats because we really do believe that they make amazing pets and that they are often underrated since dogs are often called man’s best friend and the like even though cats have a lot of benefits associated with them as well, benefits that are hard to ignore.
Cats are great because they are low maintenance. They can sit in your lap while you are enjoying your favorite show or movie, and petting them can be enormously therapeutic. If you have a Sick Kitty taking care of it will be easier than taking care of a sick dog. What’s more is that you don’t have to do as much with a cat either. With a dog you have to take it out if it wants to relieve itself but all cats need is a litter box where they will go themselves. Furthermore cats don’t need to be walked or anything either, nor are they quite as needy as dogs.
All of these things mean that having a cat would give you lots of advantages and close to no disadvantages which is the kind of thing you should really take into account. They can be perfectly loving pets as well because they form deep emotional bonds with you and as a result they would never abandon you unless you don’t treat them well. As long as you are respectful towards your kitty there is no reason why you won’t be able to spend a lot of time with them.
