Advantages and Disadvantages of Having a Cat
Studies have shown that people who have cats are less likely to suffer a heart attack, and petting a cat lowers our heart rate and blood pressure. However, sharing your life with this little feline also has some drawbacks that each person must be very aware of before deciding to take a kitten home:
They have a tendency to scratch furniture, sofas or curtains.
You must be prepared to clean their litter box at least twice a day.
While cats can be very affectionate, they are much more independent than dogs. This can sometimes make an owner feel unappreciated by this pet.
Many people suffer from cat allergies. Your new pet could be a potential issue for family or friends that visit.
Cats are beautiful, loving creatures can win our hearts within a split second.
Overall, the pros outweigh the cons, and having a cat can prove to be a very enriching life experience. It is good to be aware of the drawbacks, but those wishing to have a cat, should feel very happy about their decision.
