Cats can also be easily trained to use a litter box, which makes them very easy and manageable to take care of.
The independent personalities of cats makes them very different than dogs. While dogs need to walked daily and can’t stay home alone for very long, cat are able to take care of themselves at home for a day or two without any humans around (as long as they are left with plenty of food and water). All of this makes cat ownership a not only fun experience, but a relatively easy one.

So, while it is always heartbreaking to have to say goodbye to a beloved pet and to have to think about arranging cat memorials, the good news is that these amazing pets generally stay around for the duration.
So, the next time you feel the need for a new pet, consider the wonder that is the domestic cat. These fabulous creatures make wonderful friends and furry companions.
