We have all wanted a pet from a young age but we have always been told no from our parents. We were given many excuses like you are too young to have a pet and you won’t take care of it. Our parents were probably right back then but now that we are adults, we get to make the decision about getting a pet by ourselves. Choosing the right pet can be a difficult one but it generally boils down to two types of pets when we have to choose. It is the dog or cat scenario again and this argument is going on all across Australia and all around the world. Here are some reasons why you should choose a cat.
ü Cats are Happy Indoors – Unlike dogs that need to be outside all the time, cats are perfectly happy to stay inside in the heat and comfort. It doesn’t matter if it is raining outside and it is really cold, your dog will want to go outside no matter what. Dogs need to be walked but cats don’t and this is a great reason to choose a cat. If you are a laid back person like you cat, then you don’t want to have to go outside in the cold and rain and why should you.

ü Cats Earn Their Keep – Cats are great for keeping pests at bay and most homes experience the visits from the local mouse. Once a mouse or rat gets into your home, they can cause all sorts of problems from disease to chewing through electrical wires. Your trusty cat will make sure that they don’t get into your home and if they do manage to slip by your cat, then you can be sure that your cat will get them when they enter your home.
ü Easy to Clean Litter Boxes – Having to empty out a litter box that your cat uses for their business, is much easier to do than having to put on your shoes and take your dog for a walk that will probably take close to an hour or more. Cats will also burying their poo in the litter box but your dog will do his business right there in the park or road and you are expected to pick it up and discard of it. If this isn’t reason enough to choose a cat over a dog, I don’t know what is.
ü Cats Clean Themselves – Having a dog means that the dog is going to try to rub itself in all kinds of nasty things, It is what dogs do. However, you are the one who is going to have to bathe this dog, dry it and then you have to brush its coat and this needs to be done on a regular basis. Cats clean themselves, it is as simple as that and you don’t have to be involved in their cleaning at any point.
The above list should help you to make up your mind but it seems clear. Cats are definitely better than dogs.
