The amount of work, price and time that goes into having a friend creature varies from family pet to dog or cat, so let's check out different kinds of dogs, and which might be most ideal for you.
There are a few minuses when it comes to cat possession, however. Quite a few people have problems with allergies to kitten dander, which will make it difficult to be around felines. Cats, naturally, like to sharpen their claws. Many a cat has been recognized to ruin living room furniture with their claws, although a feline scratching post can sometimes provide as a good alternative for the pet cat.
Cats are extremely popular as domestic pets. They are also beautiful, fluffy and affectionate, but a lot more self-reliant than canines. Most felines can be kept alone all day long (or even overnight) without ill-effect. Felines tend to eat much less that pups (apart from the toy variety of dog), and they don't require twice daily walks, interval training, or constant guidance. Pet cats and kittens are super easy to house-train, too. Just give them a litter-box and some litter tucked away in a silent part of the basement, and you can be confident your pet cat will litter coach itself.
