10 Reasons to Adopt a Cat
For a while now you've been craving dʼun a little moustache-purring companion! Having a loving cat in your life is a real joy. Here are 10 good reasons to adopt cats, cats and kittens today.
1. A cat, it is good for HEALTH!
No, you're not dreaming! Time spent with a kitten is very good for your health. Indeed, it has a direct effect on your blood pressure!
In addition, cuddling, stroking the coat and playing with your cats and kittens, boosts your dopamine and serotonin levels making you much less stressed. The cats help us to fight against anxiety and depression (how nice and adorable these cats are 😻)
2. A cat is less investment than a dog
No more morning walks in the rain to get Rufus out. With your cat, the litter box is warm at home!
You don't have to feel guilty if you come home late because your cat or cat is having crazy adventures at home in his cat tree, making his claws and eating his pâtée and croquettes in his bowl, and finally taking a well-deserved nap.
3. A cat is independent
No need to be present 24 hours a day for your cat. He sʼen goes out very well on his own and doesn't need hugs all the time! Cats like to have their freedom and tranquility and can play alone for hours. No more need for a pet nanny!
4. A cat is the cutest pet in the world
Who hasn't fallen in love with videos of purring cats? Adopting a cat means making sure you have a soft little ball of fur in your home every night that wants to cuddle.
5. A cat is a loyal friend
And yes, your cat is still here! More present than a lover, than a best friend, the cat is a little a jar of glue (especially if you live alone with him 😺). Soon you will no longer be able to do without it and will spend your evenings stroking.
6. Cats are discreet
They may be shy in some situations but are often very sociable and require a lot of attention for a short period of time.
A cat sleeps on average between 12-16 hours a day (lucky cat). As a result, it is not your cat who is likely to bark at night but rather to purr delicately.
7. A cat is very smart.
Lively and cunning, our tigers dʼappartement are animals with a form of intelligence that seduces us. Adopt a kitten and you'll quickly see that he gets what he wants, when he wants. All he has to do is lift his paws and you'll snap right away.
8. A cat is a good hunter (well, most of the time)
The number one enemy of the little beasts! Spiders, mosquitoes, mice, rats, flies... Nothing escapes a house tiger. Like its fellow lions, tigers and leopards, it is a formidable predator and will proudly bring you its trophies.
9. A cat is clean
Obsessed with hygiene, cats spend a good part of their day grooming. Besides, it's so cute! All you have to do is brush your partner regularly, depending on his hair type. We have the perfect brush to remove unwanted cat hair in your home.
10. A cat is empowering
No more excuses: adopting a cat hires you for several years. Outings, holidays, weekends, you will have to learn to organize yourself by taking your cat into account.
