Cats Are Not That Noisy
Dogs bark at people passing by, other animals and when it couldn’t get its favorite toy under the couch. No matter what the reason, continuous barking can be annoying to even the most passionate dog lovers.
On the other hand, cats also make noise especially during nighttime, when most cats are active. However their purrs and meows can be relatively quiet. These sounds are not only cute but may actually mean something, which cat owners have learned to recognize. Whenever a cat meows, this can tell if it is hungry or wants to be cuddled.
Caring for Kittens Involves Less Work
Whether pet owners have a puppy or kitten they need to devote time and energy when attending to it. They need to help it adjust to its new home and to a different diet as well as do some preliminary training, which may cause some sleep deprivation in the first weeks with a new kitten or puppy.
However, puppies need to go through continuous training (particularly when it comes to potty training) while kittens, when weaned from their mothers, can easily learn the basics of litter box use and can be left without supervision during the day.
To exercise extra caution, it is best to leave kitty in a room where it will not get into trouble while its owner is away. At, least he/she can be sure that kitty is safe because it is confined to a smaller space, where it will not be able to destroy anything.
Cats Ward Off Pests
Cats are hunters by nature so it is in their blood to hunt, stalk and attack their prey even if it is only on television. Cat owners should not let their pet eat its catch, whether it is a mouse or bug but it always makes them happy to have a pest-free home, which is one of the several advantages of having pet kitties. Furthermore, the scent of a cat can prevent rodents from invading their home since when these pests sense a hunter inside, they will less likely to proceed.
Cats are Clean
Dogs love smelly things like poop, garbage and dead animals, to name a few plus they love to roll their body on it. For this reason, dog owners need to bathe and groom their pet on a regular basis, which can cost a lot whenever it is brought to the groomer.
In essence, cats clean themselves. Cat owners can groom their pet every now and then using a brush and clip its nails whenever needed however, this is not a must since cats can manage to keep themselves clean all the time.
Cats Respect the Personal Space of Humans
When people come home from a tiring day, they may not feel like playing with a dog that keeps on following them wherever they go, insisting on playing fetch. Cats are sometimes known to be cold and distant but they know what personal space means and they respect that. They do not crave for the attention of people around them therefore, their human family can find time to relax after work.
