Cats in General
Advantages: They are so dependant!
Cats in general. Cats are and can be just as affectionate as dogs!
A lot of people have this perception that cats are not nice and that they sit on top of babies as they can smell the milk!
Cats are loving and affectionate little or big creatures! They are very clean animals and take pride in their appearance (well most). Cats do not need a lot of attention but its nice to give them attention! Cats are very independant and will and can go out for days and fend for themselves unlike dogs who are very dependant on their owners!
Cats tend to sleep and laze about a lot of the time! As they get older this is very common and can't be bothered being fussed over.
Cats eat cat food wet and dry, can drink water, some cats do like milk but it has to be cat milk as too much of the semi skimmed or full fat milk can be bad for cats!
Cats can scratch and claw at your furniture but you need to train them from kittens or when you get them not to do this! Buy them a scratching post and let them scratch away at this, they do this to sharpener their claws.
Cats tend to chase birds and mice! They will if they catch them kill them and some may eat them (mines is known to do this). Unfortnately the kittne/cat will bring the bird/mice home for you as they think this is a gift and they have done well.
Some cats are indoor cats, some are outdoor.. Litter trays/boxes are great for cats who live indoors just fill these with cat litter and let your cat do the toliet, clean this every week or so as it will start to stink. ( We should woodchip and this tends not to stink).
If you are letting your cat out, I would recommend getting them mircochipped this is just incase it every goes missing and it turns up at a vet they can track it back to your house.
I would also encourage getting your pet insured as you never know when they are likely to be in a little accident which may leave you strapped for cash, insurance for pets can cost as little as £4.00 a month! Look into it!
Summary: Friendly loving wee characters!
