What is it that cats have, which make people fall in love with them?
Cats have captured the hearts of countless people with their mysterious and elegant nature.
1.“Sniffing” the cat can bring you pleasure
If you have a pet cat, you will always feel the urge to sniff your cat! Cats are very clean, and it is said that every cat has a different smell. Some cats smell like rice, some cats smell like sweet honey cake, some smell like cartons, grass, or the smell of quilt under the sun!
2.It’s more environmentally friendly to have pet cats than dogs
A study in 2009 by the New Zealand Media found that the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by a dog from ingesting food during his lifetime is about the same as the emissions of a truck. Meanwhile, cats’ carbon emissions are relatively much lower. But don’t get us wrong! Doggos are good pets too!
3.Cats are the masters of capturing bugs and insects
Cats are the master of hunting by nature. Not only do they capture mice, they also go after cockroaches, and even birds. If your cat loves you enough, it will capture something and leave it for you as a gift to say thank you. So sometimes you might wake up to a dead cockroach next to you! But with time and patience, your cat will get the message that this is not what you want.
4.Cats can heal your heart
A cat’s purrs are one of the best things on earth. It’s really healing to see them being content and calm. And their paws are like small mangosteens! The softness can make you forget all the unhappiness in life.
5.Cats will welcome you home!
Just like dogs, cats will sit right in front of the door when they hear noises outside, waiting to meow at you as you enter, as if they are saying “welcome home!”
6.Cats are the best and most punctual alarm clock
Cats need to live with consistent routine. Constant changes in their living will make them feel uncomfortable. Hence, a lot of cats will wake their owner up early to remind their owners to feed them. There are many ways your cat will wake you. They will meow at you, slap you with their soft mangosteen paws, or step on your face. Even if you hate getting out of bed, your cat will make sure that you can get up on time (to feed them).
7.Your quiet companion
Although cats are sensitive, they are relatively quiet. Unlike dogs, they don’t need your attention 24/7. They will stay quiet beside their owner, watch them do their work or their assignments, which is really heart warming.
There are many benefits to having cats as your pet! Adopt a cat to be the quiet protector you never knew you needed!
