I am a cat lover and also enjoy writing about a variety of commercial topics. Unlike humans, animals give you unconditional love.

cool cat


They don’t dump you or leave you in the dirt. Only cats are hilarious enough to be the biggest celebrities on the web.

You can take a short vacation and leave them at home. They don’t get separation anxiety and tear up your entire house like dogs do.

Yeah, litter boxes can be gross, but they are much easier to deal with than poop scattered all over the house. Cats can even be taught to be potty-trained on a real toilet.

Do you ever get annoyed when a dog’s barking wakes the whole house? Cats that are vocal never meow loud enough to cause a scene, and when you have visitors they go off and hide rather than jump all over them.

They don’t smell bad either like dogs do. You’ll see: after you pet a cat, you don’t feel like you need to wash your hands like crazy.

Cats can stay inside their whole lives, and never get dirty and bring fleas and ticks into your home. You don’t have to worry about your pet getting attacked by a wild animal when they live inside.

You won't have a rat problem with a cat in your house. Everyone has seen those millions of videos on YouTube featuring cats hilarious behaviors.

They are bigger celebrities than half of the people on the Internet. They are very emotional animals that love to be held and cuddled with.

Love cats and dogs....they both bring something great to the table. Only reason to like one over the other is your lifestyle...and while dogs do tend to be more emotionally connected{face it, no cat ever meowed itself to death over your grave} not everyone has the time for a dog or the willingness to give them what they need.

Dogs are nagging wives.... cats are mistresses. If you keep your dog chained up in the backyard for more than an hour a day all alone you're probably a cat person and don't know it.

I love cats to pieces, but #5 is demonstrably false. My neighbors complained about my Bengal waking them up and annoying them.

My two cats have brought my family together by providing us comfort and joy. But I truly feel they belong in the wild outdoors free to be themselves.

I own a cat and a dog, and I think it has no reason to compare between them. I can't tell you how many times I have cried while reading CATS ARE EVIL” articles.

Cats are lovely creatures, and the reason why people prefer dogs is that they don't want to have to earn the trust of a cat-they'd much rather get easy love from a dog. Once you've gained a cat's love, they will find a way to show it.

I once saw a comment on Quora that read “How can anyone love a cat in a world where dogs exist?” Which brings me to my next point- When I state how much I love cats, I am instantly met with a tirade of rants about how I can love them, they're evil, dogs are better.

Look, I keep quiet whenever you start rambling about how cute your dog is-can't you give my cat the same courtesy? I have absolutely adored cats since I first laid eyes on one as an infant.

Her name is Pepper, and she was a stray that I finally convinced to get close to me, and she has given me nothing but love and happiness the last two years! Hi I'm allergic to cats but I have mine at my grandma's name is whiskers.

Would have to agree with your comments about these beautiful creatures, the two cats in the picture, seriously cute, as cats always are, if you have cats you will see scenes like this constantly, simply because they are cute, loveable, pleasure to have, and in closing may I say I feel sorry for people who do not love cats. People are so very lucky if they are fortunate to have the love of a cat.

Great article, except it's a little disconcerting that reasons 1 through 5 are a bit exaggerated and generalized. Let's not stereotype animals, whether in a good way or bad way.

Active breeds like Bengals can become very destructive if left to their own devices. Playing with toys with your cat for about 10-20 minutes a day is all that most cats require to be drained of excess energy, so they don't become destructive, or take out their energy on other pets in the house or their people.

And saying cats can't injure kids is an extremely false statement. Cats have claws and teeth, and just like any other animal will defend themselves when threatened.

Please teach your kids the proper way to play with their kitty (with toys!) And make sure kitty has plenty of escape routes and places where he can take a break from rambunctious kids, like a cat tree or cat shelves.

But implying that all cats are quiet all the time is absurd. Yes, cats don't bark loudly like dogs do, but many cats are extremely vocal towards their humans, and can in fact keep you up at night meowing, especially if they are not played with enough during the day like stated above.

Give your cats plenty of playtime during the day, and feed your cats about one to two hours before you go to bed. That will give the cats plenty of time to wind down and get sleepy enough to not bother you all night long.

Cats are amazing animals and can make wonderful companions for people of all ages if cared for properly. Please do your own research before getting a cat, and remember there are millions of animals in shelters in need of loving homes.

I'd love to have a dog, but don't want to invest the time it would take to care for it. My motto: If you're having a bad day, just watch a cat.

I've always loved cats since I was very little.but that's not to say I dislike dogs, I like dogs too, but I am just very attached to the comfort of cats and their personalities:) I enjoyed your hub it was very useful to old and new cat people.

I never say I am a cat or dog owner because I believe my Pom Sweetie Angel and Keeper my cat own me. I had my first kitty when I was two years old and I named her Kiss, because we kissed each other all the time--my mother said---she would tell me No-No and I would still do it.

Reading this gives me a physical pain as I cannot keep a cat again after ours died at the age of 20. I have inherited two small (medium size)dogs, and find they do take up way much more time and require more attention than the cats did.

Although I would not dream of getting rid of them, they tend to limit me in going anywhere overnight as they can't be left alone like the cats were. Every cat had its own personality, and individual behavior.

Oh, his dad was a Mainer. He was big and gray and had the M too Hus mom was a gray tabby with a lot of white almost Blue fur.she was gorgeous but kinda smallish she was a smallish cat... I think Pips dad was a bully alpha male cat.... Pips kind of a chicken...except when he is indoors with Darcy. The two of them think they are mountain lions. They have scared away deer, birds, squirrels, cats, several dog sand a few kids . Yet they were terribly intimidated by my old age; fish- black and white and about 6 inches from top to bottom...they would get nose to tank until Gill-angelfish came over... then hey would jump down from the chair and chatter at him but being a fish he was not intimidated...who knew...

#2 cat is my dog- he's a Siamese too smart he has us trained when we come home he flops on the floor until scratched- like all Siamese he is a talker very loud and always jabbering he comes when called- sometimes he's a chow hound and likes to eat his “brothers food”. I think he is PCI- he just came over while I was writing about him. Even after I told him I had no food- he loves ice cream- too much he will steal a few licks if a bowl is left unattended. We are contemplating a dog . But- when ever I mention it the Siamese gives me almost a growl... it's odd.

Cats are beautiful animals, treasured pets and smart. I am allergic to cats but I would love to have one. Thank you for sharing.

Having 7 cats, I can attest to all the reasons being It didn’t matter what type of animal it was I wanted to learn about it and have it as a pet.

However, on the other hand my mom would refuse to accept that cats are cool, till we got one. My cat found a way to change her stubborn mind.

I hope I can change the mind of a few more, here, with 5 reasons why cats are cool ! I have to say that a cat can pounce into your heart with their good looks and purrs.

My dad saw her and wanted to help her… At the very least cats are picture enhancers. Cats can turn an ordinary selfie into something that makes people hit that “like” button or at least take a second glance.

Even though cats are wilder than dogs, we can train them to use the litter box. The family dog has been with us for 10+ years, and he started to eliminate in the house instead of waiting till we take him out.

My cat meows to be let out, so she doesn’t have to smell up the house. They depend on a human to walk them and dogs end up becoming a chore.

Cats will use a littler box and YOU, as the owner, must do your part to keep it clean. When it comes to personal grooming, cats are able to take care of that themselves, unlike dogs.

Cats are characters they each have their own personality that shines through uniquely. My cat runs around the house like crazy and loves playing, but only for a little while.

If you are looking for a pet please look into adopting one of the many loving animals that need new homes. Cats are a special type of pet.

Coolcats is a cat charity that helps cats rebuild their lives after being abandoned or ill-treated in some way (ope this helps) Household cats have been known to lie on floor tiles or wooden or stone floors in order to cool down.

Yeah there pretty and fast and cool ! Without the luxury of an air conditioner, humans sweat, dogs pant, and other critters seek refuge in shaded areas.

In fact, cats combine several of these techniques to cool down in hot weather: The rapid breathing, similar to a dog's panting, allows saliva to evaporate from their tongue and allows them to cool down.

How to help: If you notice your cat breathing rapidly or struggling to find comfort, you may need to intervene. Seek out a cool, dark place inside for your cat to relax and provide plenty of water.

Be sure to brush your cat regularly in the warmer months to remove excess fur. Some cats might also enjoy playing with ice cubes on cool, hard floors.

Jennifer Wilbur is a life-long animal lover. She currently has two black cats, and has had many dogs and small pets throughout her life.

I grew up with dogs, but I got my first cat about three years ago. While I still love dogs and hope to get one of my own eventually, I have found cats to be much better pets than I originally gave them credit for.

Here are some reasons I’ve discovered as to why cats can be the best pets. Cats spend a lot of their time grooming, so they are always nice and clean.

Cats spend much of their time grooming themselves, so you will rarely have to bathe your feline friend. Compared to dogs, cats tend to smell much better.

Unlike dogs, your cat won’t go outside and roll in unpleasant things or pick a fight with a skunk. Because cats are so good at keeping themselves clean, they usually feel softer and cleaner than dogs and many other animals when you pet them.

Even the loudest meows are cute and relatively quiet. Even the loudest, most insistent meows are much quieter than most barks.

Even when your cat is trying her hardest to annoy you into giving her extra treats, her meow sounds are adorable. It’s hard to be annoyed by such cute little sounds.

Cats don’t need to be taken outside multiple times a day for bathroom and exercise walks. Cats also don’t require nearly as much training as dogs.

A cat is content to curl up next to you while you work, while a dog may demand your undivided attention. Cats can also be left home by themselves while you are at work and are much less likely to destroy your house while you are gone.

Cats don’t need to be taken outside in the middle of the night to do their business. While no one enjoys cleaning the letterbox, it is still much easier and less of a burden than having to go outside in the darkness or bad weather and having to carry around little baggies of your fluffy friend’s waste until you can get to a garbage can.

Cats are small enough that they can get plenty of exercise indoors, especially if you have plenty of vertical spaces for your feline friend to climb. Since cats don’t need to go outside, they will also never track in mud after you have just finished mopping the floor.

Kittens are taught how to use a litter box by their mother cat. Most kittens already know how to use the litter box as soon as you bring them home.

Even cats that were born stray or feral instinctively know to bury their waste after going to the bathroom. The most you will have to do to potty-train your new furry friend is to show her where the litter box is and show her how to dig in the (clean) litter using your own hand.

Cats are ferocious hunters who can protect your home from vermin. The mere presence of a cat is usually enough to keep mice and rats away.

If a rogue rodent does find its way into your house, however, your cat’s natural predator instincts will kick in. Though it can be gross finding remains of your fluffy friend’s hunting victories, it still beats having vermin running lose through your home.

The initial adoption fee for cats and kittens is often less than that of dogs. Cats are smaller than most dogs and require fewer purchases.

Vet care is also often less expensive for cats than for dogs. Cats are usually perfectly happy with “toys” that don’t cost anything.

My cats favorite toys are cardboard boxes, milk jug rings, and those silicone bracelets that you get from donating a couple of dollars to certain charities. Because cats don’t need to be taken outside to use the restroom, they can be left home alone all day while you are at work without having to worry about coming home to any nasty surprises on your living-room carpet.

Cats are also less prone to separation anxiety, so they can tolerate being home for longer periods of time without their human (though it is still best if you have a pair of cats to keep each other company). Cats can even be left home alone for a couple without a pet sitter if you are going to be gone all weekend.

If you leave enough food and water and have enough litter boxes, they will be just fine for a night or two on their own. If you live in an apartment, you are more likely to be allowed to have a cat than a dog.

Cats also take up less space, so they will be happier living in an apartment than a dog would, especially larger breeds. Because cats use the litter box and don’t need to be taken outside to use the bathroom or to exercise, it is easier to keep a cat in upper-level apartments than a dog as well, as you won’t need to bring it down the stairs multiple times a day.

As mentioned above, cats are fairly quiet compared to dogs, so neighbors in your apartment building won’t be bothered by a cat’s meows like they may be by a barking dog. Cats like to be where their favorite humans are but are often less needy than their canine counterparts.

Cats are usually content to sit quietly near their favorite human while they work or read a book. There is nothing better than a cat purring on your lap after a long day.

Cats can be just as affectionate and loving as dogs but aren’t as high maintenance. Cats often get a bad reputation from dog lovers.

Cat’s make great pets and are ideal companions for people who work full time or who live in an apartment. They are less expensive to keep and require less maintenance than dogs.

Absolutely agree that cats are just as wonderful as dogs. Yes they are all beautiful with each kitty having their own personality...i SHD know...I have 10 all sizes.shapes and colors.

Since I live in an apartment building is better to have a cat since they are easy to take care of them. This will help with convincing the class cats are better than dogs.

Plenty of apartments allow cats because they’re quiet, so they are less likely to wake the neighbors up when someone rings your doorbell. According to the ASPCA, cats won’t break the bank nearly as much as medium or large dogs because they require much less food, fewer toys, and fewer trips to the groomer.

Unlike our friend Fido, Whiskers doesn't require multiple walks a day. Older cats can also be left alone for a day or two if they have access to their food, water, and litter box.

Since they don't hunt for their food, it's believed kitties have an abundance of energy stored up and release it through playtime. Just kidding ... but seriously, cats are a lot smarter than people make them out to be.

According to Animal Planet, cats are constantly learning and have an excellent memory. When you head off to work and need to leave your pet behind, you may start to feel a little guilty.
