Do you miss having a constant companion in your life? Do you think it’s time to expand your family- and not just in the regular, boring way? Do you crave for something to cuddle at the end of a tiring day at work? If the answer to any of these is yes- consider getting a pet cat! Cats are the perfect furry friends you can cuddle up with on a rainy day. And in case you’re still thinking why- here are some reasons to consider.
1. They Aren’t High Maintenance
In this day and age, when we don’t even find the time to maintain ourselves- how could we possibly do the same for a pet? Well, guess what! Cats are the lowest in the maintenance hierarchy as it can get.
2. They Don’t Do Much
The most activity that a cat will do in a regular day is probably just walking to the food bowl to eat- and back to the couch to sleep! Their presence is comforting, solely because of the minimal activity they can manage to get the day by. Cats have a queenly demeanours- treating us regular humans like slaves.
3. They’re Clean
Cats are extremely particular about hygiene- without you even having to bother once! They lick themselves clean and there is hardly an occasion that you’ll find a single speck of dust on their fur coats.
4. They Comfort
Cats have this comforting aura around them- sort of like an old grandmother that you would go to just to get a “jaadu ki jhappi” from her. It’s like a walking, meowing, live little stuff toy- and your own personal one at that!
5. They Are Great Companions
If you’re in the mood to play- cats will be up for it, albeit a bit grudgingly. If you want to wrap up yourself in a blanket and just watch TV- cats will be up for it more than just willingly! Whatever’s your game, a cat is the best company for it.
6. They Know You The Best!
If you think your cat is just lying in a corner least bothered about your existence- you couldn’t be farther from the truth! Cats have a strong instinct and understanding with their masters. They understand your moods and whims better than most of your human friends probably would.
7. They Alleviate Stress
Cuddling your cat buddy will not just make you feel good- it will blow away all your stresses and just restore faith in humanity. What could be a better stress buster than having your very own cuddle-mate?
8. They Love To Play
Give a cat a rubber ball or a wool ball and they will keep themselves occupied for weeks- even months. Playing is something they never get bored of, only that you have to push them to being in that active state.
9. They Tread Softly
Unlike other noisy animals- cats are very quiet and silent during most part of the day! They walk noiselessly and hardly make a sound when they move. So much so that you will not even get to know that they’re in the same room. What could be better for a companion?
10. They Teach You The Right Attitude!
Their queenly demeanour is something we should all learn from- just doing their own thing, sleeping and lazing around all day, food being the topmost in their priority list, and basically not giving a damn about the world! If cats were humans- they would be the closest to the ideal, paragon, virtuous being there could ever be.
