5 Reasons To Love Owning A Cat

While cats may not be everybody's cup of tea I think they're pretty darn neat

5 Reasons To Love Owning A Cat
Reader's Digest

When you ask someone what they think the most contested debate of all time is, some may say things such as Democrats or Republicans. However, I believe the most important debate that the world has truly seen is that of dogs versus cats. While I think both are absolutely amazing, I must admit I am a bit partial to cats myself. As a result of this opinion, I have decided to give five reasons why I love these mischievous felines so much.

1. Their purr

For me personally, this one point could win the whole debate. I love nothing more than the feeling of my cat curling up against me while he purrs. While for some cats purrs are rare, others (aka my cats) are total purr machines. Purring is great because it's not only relaxing to humans but also means your cat is happy as well!

2. You don't have to take them out to go to the bathroom

As someone who owns a cat and a dog, I can tell you just how convenient this really is, especially when it's cold outside. With cats, you don't have to worry about making sure they've gone to the bathroom because unlike dogs cats are quite independent in this aspect. As long as you scoop up after them twice a day or so they're generally good to go (pun intended). While the idea of a litter box may seem yucky, when it's the middle of a snow storm you'll be happy you can scoop up after your cats in the comfort of your heated home.

3. They're silly

Have you ever seen a cat play with catnip? use a scratching post? play with a piece of string? It doesn't take much to entertain a cat and most of them have very colorful personalities when playing. Playing with your cat can be a great bonding activity for both of you and will definitely increase both you and your cats moods!

4. They're cuddly

While many people associate cats with independence and aloof behavior, many are surprised to find that many of these pint-sized felines are actually quite the love sponges. Some cats may start out shy but most will generally warm up to you after just a bit of time. When I'm tired, there's nothing more comforting than laying down while my cat curls up with me.

5. They become your best friend

After all of the random meowing, furniture scratching, and occasional accidents at the end of the day your cat truly does become your best friend. Bonding with a cat is a really rewarding experience, especially when even the most skittish of felines begins to show its affections for you. While having any pet is amazing, caring for a cat can often be a fun and interesting experience like no other.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
