We own 2 cat's. ! One we've had for 13 years, I was suckered into giving him a home from a friend who was moving. The secound is my daughter's who's away in college. She smuggled him home to us about 5 years ago now. My cats like people, which most cats just like to be left alone. They give as much love as any other animal can....I say go for it, as long as your really ready to care for something its entire life.
Just a couple things you should know about cats before you bring one of these fuzzy mousecatchers home. 1. If you want them to walk somewhere fast, they won't. 2. If you are trying to sleep they'll wake you up in case you missed them. 3. Regardless of what you feed them, their breath is always fishy. 4. No matter what side of the door they're on it's always the wrong side. 5. Cat toys are for you to play with, they'll watch. Seriously, Cats are great animals. As a professed dog-man that's saying a lot. There's nothing like a cat laying on your feet to keep you warm at night. Go for it, just make sure you're ready. Good Luck!
Cats are great. Mine likes to catch mice and roaches. The best thing about them is how much the like to share. They like to share mice heads and parts of bugs. Birds and moles too. LOL. I love my cat to death. Cats are better than dogs in the sense that they dont need as much attention.
I agree, cats don't need as much attention as dogs. Make sure you're willing to keep the litter pan clean, or a cat will let you know he's unhappy with his bathroom! We have 4 cats inside, and 6 cats outside. We got the original (17years old!) as a kitten, from a friend. Two others, we got as adults from an animal shelter. All the rest found us. (Believe me when I say, we never intended to have 10 cats!) The hardest part has been rounding up these feral cats, taming them, and getting them spayed/neutered. Make sure you have that done, whether you get an adult or a kitten. I don't know about your area, but where I live, there's tons more cats in shelters than dogs, and more cats than dogs end up being euthanized because no one cared enough to take care of them.
lol....wow. cats a re great animals, loving, cuddling... Mine jsut jumped onto the window sill and knocked a plant pot off, its smashed. lol. o well. we still love him. good luck, they are nice animals.
UUUHHHG! I have a word of warning for you; Yes, cats are the easiest pets, but they sort of smell, and my cats HATES all living creatures. Dogs are more work, but they are more socail, friendly, and can do more. Though some cats can be REALLY friendly like my neighbors. It's your choice, good luck!
I have a himalayan that is now 7 1/2 years old as well as a 2 1/2 year old yorkshire terrier (dog). My dog is definiitely more social, and I can do more with her. But my cat can be sweet sometimes too and I love her. Cats are definitely easier to own than a dog. I feed her once a day and make sure she has fresh water. I scoop out her litter box once a day and change the litter completely about once a week. Cats are so easy to litter box train - they just take right too it, unlike dogs which can be a pain in the butt to potty train. Most cats are pretty independent but some are almost dog-like and very social. Cats are also great because you can leave them alone for a weekend - just leave plenty of food and water out and they're fine. And a dog you have to have someone take care of because they need to be walked. The only other issue with a cat is claws - mine is declawed so that solves that problem, but if you don't want to declaw you have to keep the claws trimmed and train them to not scratch things.
