Cats are great pets. They are beautiful, purr and keep us company. However, some people find it mysterious and a bit difficult to carry.
This is because most people compare them to dogs, and this is not the case. Knowing certain things could make a living together easier and could improve your concept about cats.
9 Things your cat would love you to know
1- Cat is the owner of your house, your life and everything that surrounds you
They are semi-domestic, so they retain many wild instincts such as territoriality. For the cat, you are the one who lives with her, and it allows this to be because you feed her, and you don’t cause problems. They usually take over your favorite places in the house very comfortably, and you will not be able to do anything to remedy it.
2- She loves you more than you imagine
Cats will not go crazy by giving you licks when you enter the door of their house, but this does not mean they do not love you. They are simply more subtle when it comes to demonstrating everything they love you.
3- All your clothes will have cat hairs
You must accept it as soon as possible. Unless your cat is of some bald breed, her hair will invade your entire house. You should vacuum and need to brush the animal daily.
4- Sterilize your cat
Some people do not conceive the idea of sterilizing their cats as they tend to humanize the animal and think they would feel bad if we did. However, the sterilization of the animal is an improvement in its life, since we would eliminate the stress derived from wanting to reproduce and not being able to do so, the possibility of having diseases of the reproductive system and the possibility of having unwanted litters
5- Never buy
Even if you like certain species of cats, do not buy them. It is better to know that you are giving a stray cat a chance. There are many associations with cat litters looking for a home. Consider adopting as your best option.
6- A cat is not a dog
Although it seems simple, it causes most of the problems between humans and cats. The instincts of cats and dogs are very different, so you should not educate or treat a cat as if it were a dog since you will not get anything.
7- If you let her do something once, she will always do it
You must have a lot of patience with them. They only need you to let them do something once to think they are entitled to it, such as allowing them to sleep with you. You have to set some rules from the beginning and make sure they are met.
8- A cat or two?
It all depends on the circumstances. If you have all the needs covered, a cat can live perfectly happy in the company of another. Ideally, both cats would have been raised together so that there is no anger. If they are older, introduce the cat at home little by little.
9- They live many years
If you want to share your life with a cat, you should be aware that its average life is about 12-15 years since you must take care of it all your life. We must take them to the vet and take care of them.
Your way of seeing cats has likely changed now that you know this information about them. Remember, it’s not that they don’t love you; they just show their love differently. And most importantly: do not buy, ADOPT.
