There are some minuses as it pertains to cat ownership, however. Quite a few people suffer from allergies to kitten dander, which will make it difficult to be around pet cats. Cats, naturally, prefer to sharpen their claws. Many a kitten has been known to eliminate living room furniture with their claws, although a feline scratching post will often serve as a good substitute for the kitty.
Finally, pet cats shed - sometimes a lot. If you are a cool freak, this can be something you would not appreciate. So if considering a kitten or kitten for your dog, be sure to think about whether you can handle cleaning the kitty litter box on a regular basis, vacuuming a whole lot, and interacting with the opportunity of furniture damage.
