It is a brand new year, a new beginning, and for many, the best time to consider adding a new furry friend to the home, most likely a cat or a dog. With their low maintenance lifestyles, extremely curious personalities, adorable faces, and independent ways, it is no surprise that cats are the most popular pets in the world!
In today's economy, affordability is a must, especially for those who are living on a single income, elderly, or retired. When compared to other common pets such as dogs, birds and reptiles, cats in general are more affordable and easier to maintain due to their low maintenance lifestyles. When considering where to get a cat for a minimal adoption fee, it is fairly inexpensive to adopt a cat from a local animal shelter, or even better, rescue a stray cat off of the streets for no cost at all.
Cats are extremely independent and highly intelligent creatures, thus overall making them very low maintenance pets when compared to other pets. Unlike dogs, cats do not require someone to take them outside to use the bathroom; cats use a litter box which they learn to do as kittens, which is unarguably an instinctive behavior in cats.
As you can see, cats are definitely the way to go, and there are many more reasons why cats are more popular as pets than dogs, so why not consider brightening up your life with a cuddly and affectionate kitty!
