It’s National Cat Lovers Month! While every month should celebrate our feline friends, it is important to highlight the benefits that owning a cat can bring to your life.
Full of Charm
Their spunky personalities are the best! One minute they’re swatting something off you’re desk, the next they are having a snooze. Their playful moods can fill an afternoon with playtime!
Cat Lovers Are Smarter!
Studies show that cat owners score higher on intelligence tests than dog owners! This is not meant to offend anyone, it’s just the facts!
Best Apartment Pets
Cats are usually quiet, so noise complaints be gone! They are also lower maintenance and can often be left for a day or two if they have food, water and litter box access.
Cats are clean by nature and enjoy the responsibility of grooming themselves. Sure, a bath, brush or trip to the groomers might be needed now and then, but in general they take charge of their own cleanliness, so you don’t have to.
Pets in general help lower your blood pressure, and a cat is no exception! Not only do they improve your physical health, but your mental health too. Cats’ purrs are said to be therapeutic, to the extent that people like to fall asleep to their soft, soothing sounds.
Cats have longer lifespans with an average of 15 years. We all know the heartbreak of losing a pet, so the longer the lifespan, the better.
