Obviously, cats are not dogs; it is common knowledge and you’d have to be blind or deaf not to know that. Whilst they are both cute and adorable animals and the tops two pets, there are significant differences. Despite their differences, they are both cute and adorable with their tails and make good pets and companions. Your choice would be based on your preferences; whether you prefer a bark or whether you prefer a soft meow.
You Don’t Need to Walk Cats
Unlike dogs, you do not need to take your cat for a walk. In fact, a cat can sleep all day and only get up for sustenance and use their litter boxes. They get their exercise from stretching, playing and well licking themselves. If you have ever seen a cat clean itself, it can take from as little as five minutes to almost an hour or more to do it. Once they do it, they will either come for a cuddle or look for a comfortable position to sleep again.
Hence, Cat’s Don’t Require Leashes
Cats are not a danger to anyone (unless they are wild and get close enough to scratch you) and since you don’t need to walk them you don’t necessarily need a leash. Try walking a cat and you would realize it’s one of the most torturous tasks you may attempt in your life especially when they try to run away or they actually succeed at running away. This could be a pain because you don’t know if they’re going to find their way back home and if they do you would wonder if you’ll be welcoming a litter in a few weeks.
You Don’t Necessarily Have to Bathe Cats
Cats don’t need baths. They hate water but there are some owners who give them a bath once in a while especially if they smell, got wounded or have fleas. Cats are generally clean animals and they groom themselves. In fact, if a cat ever licks you, their tongues are not smooth but bristle-like so it tickles.
Their tongues are like brushes so when they lick their fur, they are actually brushing it and getting rid of all dirt and grime. Cats shed a lot as well during this exercise and may even cough up fur balls so whilst you may not have to bathe them regularly, you do need to clean your home regularly or you may be in danger of having cat fur on everything you own
Cats Make Toys out of and are Fascinated by Everything
Cats are easily fascinated. Put a piece of twine in front of them and they become the most playful creatures. There is no need to even get them a toy. If you get them a collar with a bell you’d quickly see them rolling around on the ground trying to get to the bell. The simplest things fascinate them and make them easy to please. Even if your cat seems aloof, just get them an empty bottle and prepare to be entertained.
