Cats and dogs will give you years of love and affection, but that is unfortunately where the similarities stop. After reading this, you should be ready to make your decision.
Why Opt for a Cat?Cats make a great pet; they can be cuddly, cute and loving which is exactly what everyone wants. They are often independent, meaning that they will keep themselves occupied for the most part, although they do require one on one time with you. This will help to build a bond between cat and owner and can also stop them from wandering off to find another home.
However, cats are harder to train than a dog. It's not impossible and is great if you start from an early age, but cats are notoriously stubborn. Also, they have extremely sharp claws which you do not want to be on the receiving end of!
Overall, a cat makes for a great pet especially for those looking for one that doesn’t require quite as much work as a dog. Cats are loving, fun and make a great companion.
Why Opt for a Dog?On the other hand, dogs make great pets, too. They are friendly and loving and get really excited whenever they see you, even if you've only been away for an hour. They aren’t as independent as cats, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. They love walks and it gives you the opportunity to get out and enjoy some fresh air whilst spending some valuable time with your best friend.
Dogs, depending on breed, can be easier to train, however, it’s certainly not simple and is not something that can be done overnight. They can also be a lot livelier than cats and sometimes barely give you time to relax before bringing you a ball in the expectation of a game of fetch.
Dogs really do make for a great pet, that is undisputed. They are ideal for those looking to be more active and for someone looking for unconditional love.
So, have you made your decision? Are you going to go for a cat or a dog? Or maybe even one of each? Either way, you will have a new best friend who will give you all the love it can for the rest of its life.
The Perfect Solution?
Get a cat and a dog! While they may be a bit wary of each other in the beginning, often cats and dogs can become best friends in a short time. They can play together, relax together and, of course, keep each other company!
