Cats are a popular pet choice for many reasons. They are more independent than dogs, which works for people who spend a lot of time outside. Different breeds (as well as individuals) show different characteristics so there’s a perfect cat for anyone. While some felines seem to be grumpy and selfish, others are cuddly and loving.
Here are five benefits of living with cats that have been proven over and over again.
They Help You With Depression
Getting a cat can be a huge help with minimizing stress and dealing with depression and anxiety.
They are Great Company
