Cats in General
Advantages: Affectionate, Cuddly, Cute
I grew up without any pets and never really had a preference for cats or dogs, which are some of the most common household pets.
It was only upon one flatshare where I discovered how much I liked cats and what amazing animals they are.
I now have 2 cats of my own, both boys, one is 2 years old, a large black and white fluffy cat (Elmo) and the other is a 1 year old stripey cat who is rather small (Womble).
I always used to think cats were just cats and never really noticed that each had their own special personality. It is fascinating to see how they behave and interact. I was concerned upon getting a second that they would not get along, but they seem to be the best of friends. Elmo has taken on the parent role and still tries to clean Womble, which I find sweet, but Womble probably finds quite annoying now he has grown up.
Elmo is unlike most cats I have met, he is almost more human like. He sits up like a person would, with his back up straight and his legs out, he runs to the door when I come in and puts his arms up for a cuddle. It's amazing how you can have such strong feelings for a different species, and how they just fit in with your life. They really do make a difference to your life.
When Womble arrived, it was a bit of a tricky start for him, he was rather young and had to be bottle fed, which was tiring but thankfully he has grown into a regular cat, albeit small.
I find it fascinating how excited they can get over little things, like a screwed up piece of paper or a ribbon. I love to see their little smile and when they curl up into a little ball, it is the cutest thing ever.
Cats are very affectionate animals, however they are not always percieved as being this way, which I think is a shame.
Summary: Not just a pet, part of the family
