Pet Cats Need Their Inner Hunter Massaged

*This is a collaborative post

For many people, they are either one of two things, dog lovers or cat lovers. Sometimes you get both but for the most part, your character and personality will determine the kind of pet you get. Those that love cats, love how nimble they are, small and furry they are and don’t take up a lot of room. Dogs can seem a little frightening to some people especially since many medium-sized dogs are still over 100 lbs and this makes them unsuitable for some. Cats, on the other hand, are small and they are easy going. Dogs prefer to be more active and get walking or running every single day at least twice. While cats are laid back and they prefer to do their prowling at night and solo. That’s something that cat owners will pick up on, their cat is still prowling despite being domesticated.

Animals Are Purrrfect For Our Wellbeing

Did you know that most households have a pet living in them? Even though owning your very own dog, cat or hamster can be a lot of work and responsibility for the entire family, it is very much worth it. They are a great addition to any family, as they make the perfect play companions for children. Plus, you will find that you get a lot out of their loyalty and companionship as well. And they can even help to teach children some necessary life lessons. For instance, some parents buy their young children small pets, such as hamsters or guinea pigs, so that they can experience death once the animal passes.
