Before you spend a few minutes of your life reading this, I have to warn you that this really is an editorial just about how much I like cats. They are just overall great animals that can be good for comfort but are also usually independent and they don’t require too much attention. Even more important than that is the fact that cats are just absolutely adorable. Who doesn’t enjoy watching a funny cat video every once in awhile? I myself have been motivated to buy a cucumber just to watch the reaction that my cat will have. As a kid, I wasn’t able to be around cats because of how bad my allergies were, but eventually, they improved. Because of that, I was able to get my amazing, orange demon cat. Naturally, I’m biased and think that my cat is amazing. He doesn’t care about anyone or anything, but as soon as he hasn’t been around anyone very much for a while, he is suddenly kind. Also, cats are just much more curious and adventurous than any other house pet that you could potentially have. Since a lot of us in this area live in fairly rural conditions, the chances of a pet fighting with an animal are a little bit higher. I can’t say that my dog has had a run in with a coyote, but I can definitely say that about my cat. With everything combined, they are just overall fantastic and interesting to have around.
