Why do cats always go to people who don't like them

Yes, it’s true that cats often go to the one person in the room who hates cats or is scared of cats. There are reasons why cats like people who don’t like felines.

A cats’ lover makes eye contact

Cats are intimidated by eye contact, which is considered an attempt to dominate and control. That’s why cats like people who don’t like cats or are afraid of them. These people will either not bother to look at the cat because they don’t find cats particularly interesting, and those who are afraid of cat will avoid looking at the thing that scares them. It makes the cat feel safe.

Cats sense fear

Cats are pretty good at sensing feelings. When a person is afraid of them, the cat gains confidence. Someone who’s afraid of you is less likely to attack you. So the cat feels safe with a person who’s afraid of cats.

Look at it from the feline point of view. You walk in the jungle and see two bears. One of them shows no fear of humans, and the other looks scared of people. Which one would you prefer to be around?

We’re much bigger than cats, and cats are often frightened of humans. No wonder cats like people who don’t like cats. Look at this giant whale. It just loves people, and it’s heading toward you right now. How does that make you feel?

Cats don’t always want to be touched

Cats are sensitive and defensive. They don’t always like their belies rubbed, or their chins. And some cats don’t like to be touched anywhere by a stranger. Cats are intelligent animals, and they understand when a person shows interest in them and walks toward them, there’s a pretty good chance of his bald, huge human hands finding their way to their fur.

Cats lover: Oh, what a cutiepie. I wonder if it’s velvety or fluffy. Let’s find out.

Cat: Over my dead body, human.

Personal space

Cats don’t always like it when a stranger invades their personal space, which is exactly what a cats’ lover does when seeing a beautiful cat lounging on the sofa at a friend’s house. He walks closer to admire the cat, but the cat may not want to be admired from such a short distance. From a cats’ point of view, it’s like someone who gets in your face. Cats like a cats’ hater’s presence better because he keeps his distance.

Smell

Cats are sensitive to smells, and they may take their time getting used to a new smell. A cats’ lover rushes over, bringing his smell with him. Cats like it when people who don’t like cats keep their distance because that lets the cat get used to their smell on his own time and terms.

Being the boss

Cats like making the decisions. They want to be the ones who decide if and when the connection is made. The ability to decide it taken away by an over enthusiastic cats’ lover who makes the first move, instead of the boss, Mr. Cat, deciding on the time and spot where the meeting would take place.

Listen, hooman, this is how it works, OK? You don’t calls us. We calls you if we is interested. Hooman sits in da corner, and we watch and gets an impression of what kind of hooman you is, and if you is good enough, we gives you a call.

Noise

Cats are scared of noise, and cats’ lovers sometimes make noise. Their approaching footsteps, their high voices when they talk baby talk to the cat, and the way some people mew at cats. No wonder cats prefer people who don’t like cats. Cats haters would never make these annoying and scaring sounds.

How to approach a cat

Some cats actually like cats lovers. The friendly and trusting cats fall into this category. However, if the cat is shy of strangers, there are steps you can take to make the cat feel comfortable.

  • Give the cat time to get used to you
  • Call the cat over instead of walking toward the cat
  • Don’t rub the cat’s belly or chin
  • Speak in a hushed voice
  • Pet the cat very gently
  • Blink slowly and purr, then look away.

Personal experience

I know it’s true that cat like people who don’t like cats, because my cats always run out the door whenever a stranger is about to enter the house. But when a guy who suffers from asthma triggered by cats walked into the house, my cat leaped on top of the desk and looked right at him, and I had to shoo her out the house, into the yard.

Do cats forgive you if you hurt them by accident?

So, the verdict is out. Do cats forgive if you hurt them accidentally, yes or no?

Cats can hold a grudge, but not forever

I had stepped on my cats more than once. In the dark, it’s very easy to step on a cat. They’re unexpected, one minute behind you and the next their paw is under your foot. I had felt horrible and kept petting them and talking to them. They forgave me right away.

If your cat loves and trusts you, then your cat will forgive you if you hurt it accidentally, because it understands it was an accident, that this human is a friend. The cats I had stepped on, Angel and Milky, trusted me and had let me pat them.

Do cats forgive if you hurt them accidentally?

However, a feline is more likely to hold a grudge under some circumstances.

Whether or not is was an accident

I had forced a pill down my cat’s throat, and the cat had hidden and waited for half an hour behind a corner until I walked by. Then he leapt on my foot, biting and scratching.

A cat knows stepping on his paw is an accident, but forcing a pill down his throat isn’t. Cats have common sense. They understand that you can’t make them swallow a pill by accident. In the cat’s mind, I hurt him deliberately. But he had forgiven me right after the attack. Just wanted to let me know I can’t get away with it.

The cat’s temper

I’d clipped my other cat’s nails because she had an allergy and was scratching like mad, and the vet had told me to do it. And then I clipped too close to the skin, and she mewed and gave me a scolding look. But the cat forgave me for hurting her accidentally right away. This was a mild-tempered cat, a Persian cat called Milky. The cat who attacked me was a hot-tempered and violent male cat called, ironically, Angel.

Hooman, you’re my broder, and I love you, but don’t ever go against da famlia again, or I’ll be forced to take actions. And I’d hate to do dat. We been doing business for a long time, and I know you since you was a hooman cub. You always was such a good hooman cub, giving respect to felines. I’d hate to have to have to hire a hitcat. But you’re forcing my paw.

Don’t ever go against the Felianos! They might find you swimming with the rats in the sewer!

Whether or not the cat is trusting

My Princessa is a very anxious cat. After living in my house for years, she still won’t let me pet her on the head, only on the lower back. She attacks if I try petting her near the head.

After I brought her home from the vet, she’d run away and had stayed in the yard. Took her a week or two to come back. This isn’t so much about the cat forgiving you for hurting it accidentally or deliberately. This is about trust, about fear.

Up to this day, whenever I close the shutters through which my cats go in and out, Princessa panics and paws them obsessively, because I’d closed the shutters when she was taken to the vet, to prevent her from jumping out into the yard. That’s why I don’t shut these shutters anymore.

How long was the incidence

A cat is more likely to forgive you quickly for accidentally hurting it if it was a short incidence. Stepping on a cat’s paws only takes a second, and the pain as a result is very short-lived. But my Princessa was at the vet for days. I had told the vet I can’t force her to swallow a pill, so the poor cat had stayed in a cage all this time, and she’d had pilled shoved down her throat and even suffered an injection. No worry. She’s fine now, and all’s well.

How bad was the pain

Your cat is more likely to forgive someone for hurting it accidentally if the pain was mild, if it wasn’t too traumatic.

Do cats forgive if you hurt them accidentally

This must’ve been a traumatic experience for you, Mr. Tuna. We’ll discuss in our next session how it has affected you on a deeper level that was connected to your kittenhood memories, and the abandonment you’d felt when your mother left you, an experience all felines go through, I’m afraid. You may step off the couch now.

a cat is more likely to forgive a friend who hurt it accidentally than a stranger

A cat is less likely to hold a grudge against someone he knows and loves.

What angers a cat

Except for the obvious, like stepping on a their paws or taking them to the vet, there are ways you can anger your feline.

  • Touching their belly
  • Bringing a new pet into the household
  • Changing their routine
  • Trying giving them a bath
  • Making noise
  • Misplacing their food bowls
  • Not giving them enough attention and affection

Some cats allow you to rub their belly, and some won’t. A cat is angry when touched in a place he doesn’t want to be touched. My brother had moved his cat’s food bowl from one wall to another once, and the cat had gone into the place her food bowl used to be over and over again, to make sure he saw it. Cats are scared of noise. Noise is a common feline phobia. Cats get jealous of other pets you pay attention to. Cats hate water and will turn into wildcats if you attempt to bath them. They feel abandoned if not given enough quality time.

Eventually, your cat will forgive you if you hurt it accidentally. You can always pat your cat, talk to it in a soft voice, the way you talk to a baby, and offer it a treat. Find time to spend with your cat to let it know it’s loved and cherished.

Do house cats kill insects and birds?

House cats kill insects, birds, small mammals like mice, and anything else they can get their paws on. Domesticated cats still have the natural killing instinct. Felines are hunters. So are humans. We’re meat-eaters. The difference is, most humans don’t kill the cows, chickens, lambs, or pigs they eat themselves.

How many birds do cats kill

According to USA today, both feral and domestic cats kill up to 3.7 billions birds a year. Cats kill more mice and insects than birds because killing birds is difficult. Birds can fly. Mice and insects can’t.

Where I live, I see a mouse or rat once in several years. Feral cats had killed most of the mice and rats. Stray and house cats alike kill insects, but cockroaches multiply so fast, the cats can’t bring their numbers down.

Besides, cats like killing mice and birds better than insects. The bigger the prey, the better. Which is why my house cats kill flies but not mosquitoes. Although of course every cat is different as an individual. Also, cats probably prefer killing small mammals than insects. Mammals have more meat on their bones. And although my spoiled house cats have plenty of food, they consider killing mammals more fun, an evolutionary trait that had kept the feline species alive by making cats seek the best meal.

Personal experience

When my rescue cat Hazelnut was a kitten, she had leapt in through the window with a live winged cockroach in her mouth, sending me screaming and running for my life. I’m scared to death of these horrible creatures. They’re all over around here during summer nights. You can see dozens of them running around, and they get into houses sometimes.

My fat house cats had killed a bird and had left it between the wooden shutters and the glass shutters of my living room. It’s difficult to see through the glass shutters, and my sense of smell is lousy. When I finally found the bird my house cats had killed, there were worms crawling all over it and dried blood.

My cat Hazelnut likes to put her toy mouse inside her food bowl and eat around it, and my Amiga loves to chase grains of dry cats food around the room, slapping at them and sending them sliding on the floor, and then pouncing.

And it’s not just feral cats who kill birds and insects. I had a Persian cat slightly mixed with angora, who had killed a bird or two.

House cats kill snakes, too

My sister’s cat had dragged a live snake into her house and left it there, and she hasn’t found it ever since. But usually feral and house cats kill snakes and scorpions. Both feral and house cats kill rabbits and chickens as well, but there are none around where I live. No wildlife in this completely urban landscape.

Cats are natural hunters

Cats are built to hunt. They have a superior sense of smell and hearing. They can see at night. They have padded paws that enable them to sneak closer to their prey without being heard. They have amazing speed and teeth and nails as sharp as razor blades, and they’re excellent climbers. They’re also flexible and able to leap up and forward.

House cats can kill small animals, and they start hunting as kittens. Cats have the natural instincts to hunt.

Cats have the psychological traits of a hunter

Cats have the patience to hide and wait quietly, staying very still. They don’t get bored. They enjoy the stalking, the hunt, the pouncing. And they have the intelligence required to hide, knowing the prey will run off if it sees them. Also, kittens are taught how to hunt by their mothers, so by the time they’re old enough to be independent, they’re already professionals.

Cats often bring their prey home, either because they want to leave it as a present for their beloved human, or because of an evolutionary trait that programs them to want to take their prey to a safe place where they won’t be bothered by other animals who’ll steal their meal.

Even house cats who aren’t allowed outside may kill mice that are unfortunate enough to get into the house, and house cats in fenced in yards can kill low-flying birds.

Cats aren’t mean creatures. It’s just in their genes to hunt. They need to satisfy their natural hunting instincts. I have cats toys all over the house.

Why do cats hiss

When do cats hiss Cats his when they feel threatened, like when you’re taking them to the vet or trying to force your feline to swallow a pill. The reason cats hiss is because they don’t understand the motive behind your actions. As far as they’re concerned, a huge creature grabs them and shoves an unrecognized object into their mouth. This kind of instinct is an evolutionary trait. You don’t survive long in the wild if you’re trusting.

Why do cats hiss Cats hiss to scare off another creature they consider a threat. The hissing sound is scary because it sounds like a snake. When a cat is scared, its ears flattens, which further imitates a snake. The cat’s fur may stand on edge, and he might arch his back. This behavior is a scaring techniques that make the cat appear larger. It’s a warning to stay away.

When a cat hisses at another creatures, and the other creature backs off, the cat may not attack. However, a cat who’s backed in a corner may attack. Hissing is a warning not to be taken lightly. Cats are much more likely to attack in situation when they can’t run away, such as at the vet’s office, or if someone goes near their kittens. Mother cat knows she can’t snatch all her kittens and run because she can only carry one kitten in her mouth, and she won’t leave the others when there’s a predator nearby. Cats can be very dangerous in such situations.

When cats hiss, they pull their upper lip back and sometimes spit. The feline face wrinkles as it hisses. A very stressed cat may have saliva drooling down its mouth. Tigers and mountains lions can hiss, too.

What to do when a cat hisses The best thing to do is give her space. If a cat hisses at you, there’s a pretty good chance it’ll scratch you. Cats are quick as lightening, and their nails are sharp like razor blades. They can bite, too.

Do cats watch TV?

What do images on the TV screen mean to cats? Do cats watch television?

My Amiga loves sitting on my lap while I watch TV, but that’s just because she likes being on my lap. Cats usually don’t pay attention to images on the screen. Evolution never required cats to notice odorless images without breadth and depth. There was no TV in the wild.

However, cats may pay attention to fast-moving small items on the screen, or they may react to the chirping of birds. That’s when your feline might start watching TV, when the TV speaks to the cat’s hunting instinct. Now that’s something the cat can understand. Of course, it also depends on the cat’s personality.

Cats don’t watch TV the way we do. Cats don’t keep up with the story unfolding on the screen. Cats also don’t see the same color on the TV that we humans see.

The thing is, you can’t catch anything on the flat screen. It doesn’t provide prey.

Do cats think the images on the screen are real? Not judging from my cats’ behavior. They always run for their lives and leap out the window whenever a stranger arrives at my door, but they never run from the screen full of unknown humans.

My cats hiss at any new feral cat entering their territory, and they’d often start a fight. But they never react to animals on the screen, whether cats or dogs. They don’t even react to mice displayed on the screen, although they love chasing their toy mice around the house.

Cats don’t stare at the TV screen with the same intent, endless look they reserve for prey, other cats, or suspicious movement in the grass. In fact, my Amiga doesn’t even look at the screen when she sits on my lap.

We interrupt this program for a special report. Our reporter have detected unusual motion in the grass, where a small creature of the rodent species was spotted by eyewitnesses. A clue to the life form can be seen in the way the grass blades bend and the tiny pawsteps.

Yes, this could be the answer to the question; are we alone in the yard, or are there other forms of life out there?

Of course, cats don’t understand how electricity works, and moving items on the screen can be frustrating for a cat who chases the movement on the screen and never catches it. Cats get satisfaction from chasing their prey and catching it. They can chase things on the screen, but they can’t catch them. It’s the equivalent of playing basketball with imaginary baskets, where the ball can never fit.

Cats like watching their own version of television; the window. That’s where the images are real, and wonderful action takes place. A grasshopper jumping in the grass is more interesting to a feline than the police chase and the chain accident on the screen. Who cares about the stupid TV when you can catch an insect? It provides better entertainment for a cat than the television screen, not to mention a sense of pride and accomplishment.

This closed cat perch will give your cat excellent view of the outside world while giving your feline a sense of security and privacy. Your cat can spend hours watching the fascinating world outside while soaking up the warm sunshine. For customers review and more information, click here.

Can cats read minds?

Cats behavior can indicate an ability to read people’s minds. I had a cat who always seemed to know when I wanted to take him to the vet or force a pill down his throat. He’d get this suspicious and alert look in his eyes, and his body would stiffen. And the endless questions is: all right, can cats read minds, yes or no?

Cats are much more sensitive to our feelings than we give them credit for. Cats study us closely. You can see it in their direct stare, the way they survey their humans. They don’t need human language to know what we’re planning to do. Their ability to understand and put things together is better than any language, because words can lie, but the feline instincts can’t.

So, how does your feline know you’re going to force a pill down its throat, or put it in the cage to take to the vet? Here’s where the cat’s evolutionary traits come into action. This is how you unknowingly give your cat clues about your intention.

Human behavior pattern changes

When you plan to take your cat to the vet, you take the cage and open it. That raises a red flag right there and then. You look in the cat’s direction. You may may be in a hurry and skip the play and cuddle time. Being in a hurry to get this over with, you might move in a hurry. Your feline is aware of all this. Don’t think they don’t notice just because they don’t let on they notice.

An excellent sense of hearing

Your cat may not understand the words you say. They may not be aware of what you say to the vet over the phone, or you telling your spouse that it’s time to take Fluffy to the vet. But there’s a whole different language both alley cats and house cats know about. The sounds language.

When you walk toward your cat in order to take them to the vet or force a pill down your feline’s throat, your footsteps change in their volume and frequency. Your voice does the same, whether it’s your cat you’re talking to, the vet, or your family. And your breathing may change. Cats are very sensitive to changes in sounds.

Body language

Does your body stiffen when you plan to take your mind reading feline to the vet? Do your hands shake? It’s no shame to admit it. The vet’s hands shook too when he had to take care of my crazy cat, now long gone. You know you’ll have a struggle on your hands, and you might get scratched.

Do you wipe your hands on your jeans? Wear gloves? Close the doors and windows so your feline doesn’t escape? Tell the kids to get out of the room? All this planning can just be your pitfalls.

Facial expression

You may be afraid or in a hurry, and it can show in your eyes, your face. Do you blink? Does your mouth set in a thin line in determination?

An excellent sense of smell

Your so-called mind reading cat smells the pill, the cage, the sweat on your upper lip as a result of tension.

Can you cat read your mind?

So, how can you take your mind-reading cat to the vet?

I’ve learned to force the thoughts and plans out of my head when dealing with my mind reading cat, who was also huge and so mean-tempered, he was more tiger than cat. I’d picture myself petting him or walking by toward the sofa, concentrating on the sofa. You can teach yourself to do that, but it’s hard.

Just make sure your thoughts fly low so the feline radar can’t pick on it.

None of this explains why my cat had leapt out the window when I was going to give him a pill and didn’t come back until I put the pill back in the drawer. Some things can be explain by logic, and some can’t. Maybe there’s more to your cat than meets the eyes. Who knows.

How to help feral cats

There are many ways to help feral cats. Where I live, there are about a million of free roaming stray cats, colonies and colonies of them, most are not spayed, and shelters are full. Trapping them is difficult, and there are just too many of them. However, these cats survive in the warm winters. Here’s what you can do to help. There are many stray free roaming cats in Israel.

Take sick and wounded cats to the vet I’ve done that. Here, you have to pay half the price for a feral cat. If you plan on trapping a feral cat, do it carefully. Sometimes you can put food in a cage and then close it. I had simply grabbed a few cats by the back of the neck and hauled them into the cage, but you can get scratched this way. From experience.

Adopt a feral cat I’ve adopted four stray cats, and feral cats can be domesticated, and they can be good pets. They can be affectionate. My Amiga won’t get off my lap, although she’d lived on the streets for years before I got her. And she was born on the street. I urge everyone to adopt a feral cat.

Neutering If you don’t want to adopt, or can’t, you can take healthy stray cats to the vet to be spayed. When I took sick and wounded cats to the vet, they spayed them without extra charge. Although I don’t know what’s going on in other places. That’s what they do around here.

If feral cats continue to have kittens, there will be more mouths to feed, and more cats living on the streets without vet treatments when needed. They may be hungry all their lives, or they may suffer horribly from disease and die.

Leave a pillow or blanket outside There’s a feral cat living in the yard surrounding my building who sleeps on blankets someone left for him. It helps, especially in the winter. Or you can leave a cardboard box outside. Cats love sleeping in cardboard boxes.

Become a cats feeder There are several people I know around here who feed stray cats in their yards, or in the parks. They leave them dry cats food and water.

Unfortunately, people often give cats feeders a hard time. Many people object to feeding feral cats.

I’ve taken four motherless kittens to the vet, but they didn’t survive. There was another stray kitten bitten by fleas so badly, she’d developed anemia. The vet kept her for the night, but she died before morning. And there was another kitten with an infection who also didn’t survive. A cat with FIV and pneumonia who died although I gave him antibiotics.

And there were success stories! A three colored cat with a bleeding eye that the vet had managed to save her eye! At first he’d said chances are slim, but it worked. I had put her back in the alley near the pets store, where they leave her food and water, and her eye looked perfectly normal.

And there was this kitten who was slightly dehydrated and had a cold. I kept her in my house and nursed her to health, but I had to put her back on the streets, sadly. I didn’t have enough money to care for her back then. I was struggling. And there are just too many feral cats, and you can’t take them all.

Are there feral cats in your neighborhood? Or other feral animals? What kind of stray animals live where you are? And where is it? And what’s been done about it? Please tell your story in the comments. Did you ever take a feral cat or another animal to your house, or to the vet? Do you feed feral animals? I know a woman who feeds both cats and hedgehogs, although there are hardly any hedgehogs around here.

Facts about Persian cats

Persian cats appearance

Persian cats are very popular by cats’ fanciers because of their striking appearance and gentle personality. A longhaired cat with a flat round face, flat little nose, and huge eyes. Persian cats have bushy tails and long, beautiful fur. They have short, chubby legs.

Some Persian cats’ faces are flatter than others, and their nose reside between the eyes.

I still remember when I was a kitten, and the other kittens in kitten school told me I look like I collided with a truck.

Persian cats personality traits

Persian cats are usually gentle and affectionate. Their sweet temperament is one of the reasons why they’re such a popular breed. They’re usually better patients than other cats and not so quick to attack when taken to the vet, so forcing your Persian cat to swallow a pill isn’t as likely to become a nightmare. Persian cats are often not so athletic and energetic, and some Persian cats are a bit indifferent. They’re undemanding and somehow less intelligent than other cats, according to pet4homes

Perhaps the reasons they’re not as smart as other cats is because they didn’t have to hunt and hide from predators for many generation. They could survive without being clever. It could also be the results of selective breeding where the felines meant to have kittens were preferred because of the cat’s appearance and personality traits, and intelligence wasn’t an important fact.

Persian cats history

Persian cats originated from Iran, then called Persia. They arrived in Europe 400 years ago and moved on to the US in the 19th century.

Persian cats related breeds

The Himalayan cats are half Persians and half Siamese, blessed with the Persian beauty and the Siamese loyalty and fierce love for their owners.

The Exotic Shorthair is a breed between Persians and American Shorthair. They have the Persian’s gentle temperament and a shorter fur. Unfortunately, they also share the same health problems as the Persians.

Toy and teacup The smallest Persian cats, often suffering from health problems and early death because of frequent inbreeding.

Chinchilla These Persian cats’ noses aren’t as flat, so breathing problems and tearing eyes are less common.

Persian cats health problems

Persian cats often suffer from various health issues such as the polycystic kidney disease, a deadly genetic disease that ruins the kidneys and shortens the cat’s lifespan. It’s a common problem with Persian cats.

Persian cats with extra flat noses often suffer from respiratory problems.

Hairballs are also an issue among this longhair breed. Cats often swallow hairballs when grooming themselves. And Persian swallow quite a bit of their long, thick fur. There are pills and gels that will help your furry friend get rid of these hairballs. You might want to give these to your Persian cat before they get hairballs stuck in their stomachs, once a week or so. Always consult a vet first.

Giving birth to kitten with round heads can result in still born kittens. The shape of the head makes it difficult to get through, and the kittens may die in the process.

Heart problems are common among Persian cats.

Where to buy a Persian cat

Store-bought Persian cats can have many of the genetic health issues mentioned above. The best place to buy a Persian cat is from a reputable breeder. More on how to buy a Persian cat safely in this article.

Foods issues

Persian cats, and other cats that aren’t feral, will often throw up when you change their food. If you want to change your Persian cat’s food, do it slowly, 10% at a time.

Grooming tips

Persian cats need plenty of brushing. Otherwise, their fur will tangle. That’s what happened to my cat. You need to brush their belly and tail and legs and heads. Hair gets tangled a lot in the stomach, and you’ll need to get your Persian cat to lie on its back.

The part of the face is more difficult. The Persian cat’s face needs a good comb, too, but you have to be careful and avoid the eyes.

Also, Persian cats get brown patches under their eyes if you don’t clean this area. Use soft tissues, slightly wet, and wipe underneath their eyes gently.

Which pet is better, cats or dogs

Are cats better pets than dogs, or maybe dogs are better pets than cats? Should you get a cat or a dog? The answer to this debate varies from one person to another, and probably depends on the individual preferences and personality. Both dogs and cats are very popular pets, although dogs seem to be more popular. Here are 6 reason why cats make better pets than dogs and 8 reasons why dogs make better pets than cats.

Here are 6 reasons cats are better pets than dogs

  • No need to walk your cat Cats either stay in the apartment or go out independently.
  • Cats are independent by nature No need to worry about their mental state if you go aboard and leave them with a sitter. They won’t miss their owners as much as dogs.
  • Cats may be cheaper They’re smaller than most dogs and eat less, and sometimes they’re stray, so you don’t have to pay.
  • No need for bath time They clean themselves. Less hassle for you
  • Noise Cats are quieter than dogs
  • They kill insects Felines maybe better pets than dogs when it comes to hunting

Here are 8 reasons why dogs are better pets than cats

  • Dogs protect you They’re loyal. If you get attacked, a huge dog will attack your attackers.
  • home protection They protect their owner’s home from burglars when they’re out
  • You’re the center of their world Dogs adore their masters and make great companions
  • Easy patients Easier to give them a pill, while cats attack when given medicine.
  • Obedient Dogs think you’re the alpha, while cats view humans otherwise.
  • Can be taught tricks More limited capability for cats here
  • Don’t attack their owners Cats do when annoyed.
  • Can take them with you Most cats won’t be put in a harness (instead of a leash)

So, should you get a dog or a cat? A cat may be a better pet for you if you have a busy schedule, or if you’re out of the house a lot. If you have cockroaches or flies, cats will kill them. (I don’t recommend using this method on mice because they’re mammals, after all. There are have a heart cages. Insects only live a few weeks anyway…)

Cats sleep a lot during the day, which can be good, if you want alone time to work on your computer without being disturbed, or bad if you want company. However, a cat can sleep on your lap while you watch TV and pet your furry little friend. And they feel you petting them and purr in their sleep.

If a person lives alone, it’s very difficult to take a dog for a walk when one’s sick. Cats can fend for themselves. And true, they do rip up the toilet paper, knock things off the table, and scratch furniture, but dogs dig up the yard and rip the carpet.

If you’re an outdoor person, a dog is great, because you can take them with you for a walk, tie them outside the supermarket, which you can’t do with a cat. You have company while going about your daily routine. A cat will run if taken outside with you, and won’t stop when you call them.

In some ways, dogs are better pets than cats, but in some ways, cats are better pets than dogs. Cats are more fitting for the indoor type, reclusive, needing space, and short of time person. Dogs are great for the outdoor person who likes interaction and has more time to spare. It also depends whether you’re a cats lover or a dogs lover.

Of course, you can always get both a dog and a cat. Most vets I talk to tell me they have seven cats and five dogs, and they all live together happily ever after.
