There's a smaller chance of cleaning up after a cat, and you don't have to give them a bath as much as a dog, unless they go outside a lot.
3. Less needy
4. Not as loud
They typically don't meow at the door until the mailman leaves or when they see some kind of rodent running around from the window.
Yes, cats are able to show affections. It's just in different ways, like bringing you a dead rat or frog they caught. All they are trying to say is, "Hey look I took the time out of my day to catch a meal I thought was worthy and I am giving it to you." They also purr which could mean all kinds of things like, "I'm happy you are petting me," or "I'm glad to see you too."
I know that all animals have personalities, but have you ever seen, or have two or more cats and notice that they are completely different. Almost like most siblings tend to be.
Cats are typically quiet, but they know we love to talk, so they try to communicate with us. Those meows are created especially for you, so feel loved.
8. Longer life
I'm sure all of us have seen a crazy, funny cat video some time in our lives. Or adored over some serious cuteness, don't worry it's okay to be obsessed.
