Some reasons you should own a cat
Cats are sweet, quiet and independent, and hearing a cat’s purr can melt your heart. Here are five reasons you should own a cat.
1. They reduce your stress
We all get stressed out, and people have many different ways of relieving their stress. Cat owners can reduce tensions by just stroking their furry friend’s head. Petting a cat releases endorphins into the brain, which makes you happier. Also, cats have the softest fur!
2. They keep unwanted rodents away
Sometimes the very presence of a cat is enough to scare away the rodents, but for those who don’t get the hint, your kitty will soon show them who’s boss.
3. Cats bring love into the home
Animals bring with them a myriad of love and happiness into the home, which is a great reason to get a cat of your own. You will find that your cat is going to provide you with love and laughter, and everyone in your home will appreciate that twofold. Cats are wonderful pets and companions, and everyone deserves a pet that will spend a little quality time with them and bring more love into the home.
4. Baths are not needed
Cats clean themselves. Some of them will need some cleaning at times, but they’re mostly very clean animals that won’t get outside and need a bath when they come back in. They’re mostly indoor cats, too, so there’s very little chance that yours will go outside and become filthy jumping in mud puddles or doing the crazy fun stuff that dogs like to do.
5. Better lifestyle
Living a “green” lifestyle can be difficult, but a cat is a great choice for potential pet owners looking to stay eco-friendly. Studies show that the lifetime resources needed to feed and care for a cat have a smaller carbon footprint than for other animals.
Plus, most cats prefer fish to beef or corn, which is better for the environment. You can feel good about owning your kitty.
There are so many more reasons that you should get a cat to fill your home with love. You can learn a lot from your cat about how to approach life, but probably the best thing you can learn is that if all else fails, just find a sunny spot, stretch out, and bask.
