The amount of work, expense and time that goes into having a partner pet varies from dog or cat to dog or cat, so let's check out different kinds of house animals, and which might be most well suited for you.
So you're thinking about getting a pet. Perhaps your children are hounding you for a dog. Or maybe there's a spot on the couch that really needs to be filled by a cute pack of hair. There are so benefits to owning a dog or cat - but - with dog or cat possession comes a lot of responsibility.
Cats are extremely popular as domestic pets. They are also beautiful, fluffy and affectionate, but a lot more self-reliant than pups. Most felines can be kept alone all day (or even in a single day) without ill-effect. Cats tend to eat less that pet dogs (with the exception of the toy variety of dog), and they don't require twice daily walks, intensive training, or constant supervision. Cats and kittens are super easy to house-train, too. Just give them a litter-box and some litter saved in a calm part of the cellar, and you may be confident your cat will litter coach itself.
