3 Reasons Why Cats are the Best Pet

If you are a cat owner you already know this to be true, but cats are the best pet you can have. My family always had at least 1 cat when I was growing up which sparked my love for them, leading me to get two of my own. If you still need convincing, here are 3 reasons why cats are the best.

  1. 1. They are Low Maintenance

    If you are looking for a pet that you don’t have to constantly worry about taking care of, a cat is a great option for you. All they need is food, water, a litter box, and a few fun toys to survive and thrive in your house. All of their needs can be attended to once a day then they are set. They are also able to be left for longer periods of time, making your free time much more flexible!

  2. 2. They are Independent but Still Interactive

    Similar to them being low maintenance, cats are also very independent creatures. Most of them enjoy doing their own thing, so they are a great addition for a busy person or someone who wants a lower commitment pet. However, depending on the cat, they are also very interactive when they want to be and enjoy your company too! (My cat is sitting on my lap as I type this right now!)

  3. 3. They are VERY Entertaining

    This again depends on the cat but many of them, especially younger cats, are very entertaining to watch. Get some catnip or a fun toy and they can provide hours of cute entertainment. (If you are a cat owner, my cats’ favorite toy is called the Ripple Rug--10/10 recommendation!)

Overall, cats are wonderful pets if you want the company of an animal without all the commitment of many other furry friends. This is why cats really are the best pet out there.
