In the past year, we’ve all been spending more time at home. For some of us, especially if we live alone, the current situation can be very difficult.
One way to deal with loneliness and isolation is to bring home a furry friend. Cats, for those who are not allergic of course, can be lifelong friends. Caring for a cat is not very complex, as they are a relatively independent pet that needs mostly food, clean water, a clean litterbox, and lots of cuddles.
Cats are great hunters and can also help you keep your home free of cockroaches, mice, and mosquitoes.
Some studies have shown that having a cat at home can reduce stress and anxiety, and that petting a cat releases hormones that make us feel good and relaxed.
Of course, a pet is a big responsibility. Think carefully if you are ready for it, as cats have great difficulty with changes and may suffer considerably if you give them away after a short time.
Of course, you should have good chemistry with the cat you have chosen to bring home since a cat is also a roommate and not just a pet.
