Thoughts on Cats?

Hannah Rodriguez, Staff Writer

Cats are one of the most unique domestic animals. They’re stealthy, clean, and most of all, they’re incredibly cute. Cats make amazing pets because they’re affectionate but also very independent. It’s easy to take care of cats because they pretty much take care of themselves.

Some people say that cats are too standoffish or simply mean, though that usually has to do with the person concerned or the cat warming up to you. Unlike dogs, trust is earned with cats. Most dogs will follow and play with just about anyone, but cats need to know that they can trust you before they’re overly friendly. Once you earn a cat’s trust, their love is unmatched. A cat’s love is more meaningful than dogs because dogs love almost everyone, but if a cat loves you, that means that you’re special to them and they love you not just because you give them attention or food.

Cats are also relatively easy to take care of. They don’t smell and they groom themselves. You don’t even have to take them outside or on walks every time they need to go to the bathroom, they have their own bathroom they can use whenever without disruption. They also sleep quite a lot, ranging from 12 to 16 hours, which means more time for you to do whatever you need to do, or to just admire their cuteness.

Most importantly, cats live much longer than most pets, ranging from 12 to 18 years. That just means you get to enjoy the love and adorableness of your cute pet for even longer. Cats are one of, if not the cutest animals, especially out of domestic animals. Cats are easy to take care of, incredibly cute, and full of love. Every aspect of them gives more and more reason to adore them.
