Cats are naturally low maintenance compared to dogs. They require very little training, tend to be quiet and take care of their own business. Cats are a great choice for those who live busy lives and may not be able to commit to a dog’s needs.

Emotional Support

Many people turn to cats to help them deal with a number of struggles including depression and anxiety. To some people, petting a warm cat is more calming than anything else.

Pest Killers

If it’s small and it moves, your cat will catch it. This can help keep your home free from unwanted pests such as mice, cockroaches, and other insects.

Napping Buddies

If you enjoy a lazy weekend watching Netflix, your cat will surely join you. These sleepy creatures tend to sleep from 16-20 hours a day, making them the perfect cuddle partner.
