Most of the people wonder-Why Cats Make the Best Pets?Anyone who raised a cat would know that just like Humans cats also have different personalities.
Still they all share certain characteristics and instincts. By default they behave in certain way usually. But still they can surprise you with unusual behaviors.
They love warmth, they are clean, have feelings and they feel happiness, jealousy, they also love you unconditionally. Yet they can surprise you anytime with their out of character behavior.
They can be a excellent pets. Some are selfish and don’t like human touch but some cats love getting petted by humans Nd can be angels. Also many things changes how you behave with them. How you treat them.
Why Cats Make the Best_Pets?Let’s See-
There are many cats who will bring gifts to its owner once in a while. Mouse, birds, lizards, dead or alive sometimes twigs, leaf, stones tc. Once my old cat gifted me half dead snake. I scolded her so she stopped talking to me for 15 days until I went and apologized to her and she was back to herself in no time.
(I can’t imagine anyone else doing same thing she did. Hunted a snake Nd then brought it to me. Thankfully it wasn’t a poisonous snake but still it was a big snake)
So they do get attached and they worry about you too. But still some cats are all about food and snacks. Once they’re stomach is filled they don’t even come near to humans.
There are territorial and very instinctive. Still situation changes based on how you raise them. I had a male cat who looked after small kittens that I picked up from street. And another female cat just hated those kittens. Another thing is that you can’t train them like dogs. They are those creatures that will live by their own Will and will not budged by owners. (Compared to dogs).
Some cats do feel protective of their owners. One of our cat stopped a snake from climbing down from ceiling where we had slept. She sat there for whole night guarding us. So snake dint come down and took another detour and left the house. We found out later why she sat there for whole night. Unconditional love.
There is no bad pets. Just bad owners. And yes they can be a good companion/pets.
Some More In This Regard
Therefore we can conclude that Cats are amazing pets. And friends. As others have pointed out, they are litter trained pretty much since birth. Just provide them a box with litter in it and they know what to do. Feed them every day. Love them. They will love you back. The joke is that dogs have owners, cats have staff, but that’s only partially true. Cats can and are devoted companions who can really bond with their guardians. We get rewarded with their company and their purrs and rubs against our legs and head boops if we’re really lucky. They are low maintenance – just scoop their boxes, keep the litter level high enough and keep them fed and watered and talk to them. They pay off in spades.
Make sure they have a scratching post that they can scratch on (they really need it) and some places high up where they can perch and survey their domain. They love that too. A place where they can lay and look out the window is very welcome too. Beyond any of these, they are low maintenance, loving creatures. Each one has their own personality too which is always a joy to discover.
