Cats in General
Advantages: Cuddly, cute, Affectionate, Easy to look after
I never wanted a cat when I was growing up, it was always a dog I wanted. And when I moved out, I got my dog, I got my rabbits then last summer whilst browsing teh RSPCA I couldnt resist the kittens. So off I went and adopted one of those too.
I thought, as per I had been told, that cats were independent creatures. Who unlike your loyal faithful dog, ate and ran and would only stay faithful to you until something better came along. For mine, it couldnt be more wrong. Oscar never leaves me alone. Even from a kitten he wanted to be on me or near me. He would jump on me, claw his way up my leg to sit on my knee, jump to my shoulder to see what I was seeing / eating. Even now he sleeps curled up on my bed under my duvet.
With a dog, yes you do get a little more devotion and yes they do "do more" as in tricks etc, but in exchange for that you have to feed, walk, feed, walk, feed, walk, scoop poop, teach it things, basic obedience, then theres the training etc. With a cat, or with my cat to be specific I feed him, and make sure he has water.......and thats it. He poops in a tray which I empty so no messy embarrasing scooping etc. And in exchange I do get his love.
With the exception of food there is very little expenditure with a cat. As with all animals they require vaccinations and neuturing. For cats I would say, especially outdoor cats neuturing is especially important, to me there would be nothing worse than an accidental litter, especially when there are so many in rescues on daily basis.
Overall, I was pleasantly suprised by Oscar my baby tabby, so much so, that I now have adopted Mishka a lovely blck and white kitten, who is every bit as loving as Oscar.
Summary: A lovely pet
