Thinking of getting a cat? Great idea! For me when I was a kid my biggest dream was to get a cat as a pet. I was like crazy for cats I could do anything for a cat but couldn’t get one but when I became a teen and left all this ‘Cat Madness’ suddenly I got a cat! And if you ask me cats are the best, actually all animals are great, but if you like cats and are planning to get one or just increasing your cat knowledge then here’s a list of the main pros and cons of owning a cat.
1. Cats are cute
Best thing about cats they’re cute. They’re like one of the cutest things on earth. When they look at you with their shiny little eyes and all the things cats do are so cute like licking their paw and catching their own tails, who can stop themselves from saying “aww” to their cuteness. Here’s a list of all the cute things cats do.
2. Cats are playful
Cats love playing. The best part of owning pets is that you get to play with them and just like human kids cats especially kittens find new techniques of playing with different things and playing with them makes us forget all our worries(as it always does for me). And to have even more fun you can buy cat toys like teasers, toy mice, feather toys etc.
3. Cats are clean
When it comes to cleanliness cats love cleaning and grooming themselves. So if you can’t bath your pet much then good news cats only have to be bathed if they’re really dirty otherwise every 2 to 3 months. And if it’s an indoor cat then the time’s even more extended.
4. Cats keep rodents away
Cats favorite thing is chasing and killing little creatures like mice, flies and other insects it’s a part of their life. And if they live in your home they’ll do their favorite thing and make your home rodent free. But just take care your cat doesn’t eat them.
5. Cats are easy to maintain
These cute creatures are easy to maintain. They don’t have to be fed much, they don’t need much space, they don’t need regular exercise. Even if you have to go out for long or overnight that’s no big problem with a cat just keep plenty of food, fresh water, and a clean litter box that’s all.
1. Cats are destructive
Cats are filled with energy especially kittens. And they have to use this energy on something and in your home what they find to do this is your stuff, furniture, walls, curtains, doors etc. and don’t forget they’ve got razor sharp teeth and claws.
2. Cats won’t let you sleep
Like I already said cats are filled with energy and because they’re nocturnal their energies mostly boost at night. So get ready to be waked up by weird sounds at 3:00 a.m and find your cat running here and there. Even if your cat doesn’t wake you up at that time be informed that cats wake up really early like 6:00 a.m or earlier.
3. Cats bring dead creatures
As I said in the pros that cats kill rodents here is the con of it they bring those dead creatures to you as gift. Actually this is their way of showing love but its more ‘eewey’ to us than surprising. So again get ready to make your home a graveyard for dead creatures.
4. Cats’ litter box
If you have to own a pet then surely you have to care for their pee and poo. But it’s a little different with cats, you have to care for their litter box. Changing the litter, cleaning the box you sure have to get ready for that. And if the litter box is not clean they do it here and their in your home.
5. Cats won’t obey you
Well your cat knows you, they recognize you and your voice but they won’t come when you call, they don’t obey your commands like a dog. Like it goes “Dogs have owners, Cats have staff”. But it can be done with some training.
Those were some of the major pros and cons of owning a cat, now you decide “CATS YAY!” or “CATS NAY!”
