Caring for a cat isn’t the same as caring for a dog. While dogs have been domesticated and co-habitated with humans for thousands of years, cats have only recently begun to venture beyond their original role as rodent exterminators. Cat ownership is also more challenging than dog ownership, primarily because cats are so independent (and so much smaller than most dogs). But if you’re willing to make a few adjustments in your home and your lifestyle, it’s one of the best pets you’ll ever have. Because cats are so unique, the information in this article covers a variety of topics. Please read on and discover everything you need to know about keeping a feline friend happy and healthy as your newest pet companion...

Why You Should Get a Cat

You may have never considered getting a cat as a pet, but there are several reasons why you should consider adding a cat to your home: Cats are low-maintenance. They don’t require daily walks and don’t create much of an indoor mess like dogs do. Cats are less expensive to care for. Cats feed themselves by eating mice and other vermin (if you feed them a balanced diet from the pet store). You can dramatically increase the health and longevity of your cat by feeding it a diet that is low in carbohydrates and high in protein. Cats are affectionate and loyal. Owning a cat can reduce stress and help you live a healthier and happier life. Cats are highly adaptable and can thrive in almost any living environment. Cats can be great pets for both single people and families with children. Cats are great for people who don’t have a lot of time to spend taking care of a pet. Cats are self-sufficient and can amuse themselves for hours at a time.

How to Choose Your Cat

If you’re ready to bring a cat into your home, the first step is choosing the right breed. There are many different breeds of cats out there, and choosing the right one will help you enjoy your pet for its entire life. Before you start shopping around for kittens, think about what your lifestyle is like and how much time you’re able to spend with a kitten. If you work long hours and have a very busy schedule, you may want to consider getting an adult cat (at least a year old). Another important consideration is whether you want to get a male or female cat. Male cats tend to be much more vocal than females, so if you are hoping for a calmer, quieter pet, a female cat may be a better choice.
