Five Reasons Why Cats Make Great Pets
1. They’re great apartment pets. They don’t need a yard to go to the bathroom.
2. They’re excellent hunters. When a cat guards your property, scary creatures like venomous snakes and pesky bugs like mice don’t stand a chance.
3. They’re low-maintenance. You don’t need to take them out daily or spend hours playing with them to keep them happy and well-behaved.
4. They can be cost-effective compared to other pets. Cats mostly take care of themselves, needing help only when they’re very young or elderly, dealing with their daily beauty sessions.
5. They’re independent. Cats frequently move in accordance with their own rhythm. They don’t need people, but when you need them, they’ll be there for you. They can entertain themselves and mostly won’t constantly demand your attention.”
