The unconditional love and unbridled joy that a dog or puppy can add to your daily life is unmatched in the pet world. Canines are furry bundles of love, and dog possession offers benefits. It teaches your kids to be good listeners, compassionate, and moral people. It can help kids understand how to be responsible for another living creature. And puppies do provide companionship.
Cats are extremely popular as domestic pets. Also, they are beautiful, fluffy and affectionate, but a lot more self-reliant than pet dogs. Most cats can be left alone all day long (or even in a single day) without ill-effect. Felines tend to eat much less that dogs (with the exception of the toy variety of dog), and they don't require double daily walks, interval training, or constant supervision. Cats and kittens are a breeze to house-train, too. Just give them a litter-box plus some litter saved in a silent area of the basement, and you could be confident your cat will litter train itself.
