5 Reasons Why You Should Own a Cat


While some people are allergic to cats, we can’t help but fall in love with our feline friends. Aside from being all cute and furry, there are a lot more reasons why you should adopt a cat. Here are a few of them.


  1. A cat’s purr is therapeutic.

The purr of a cat isn’t only comforting, but it also has healing powers. The vibrations, which range from 30 to 140 Hz, is said to lower blood pressure, helps heal ligaments and muscle injuries, promote bone strength, and aids in decreasing symptoms of dyspnea.

  1. Cats are low maintenance.

One of the many advantages of owning a feline pet is them being low-maintenance. Although owning one means you need to shoulder its food, accessories, and medical requirements, their needs are far cheaper compared to other types of pets.


  1. They don’t require much attention.

Unlike dogs, cats are less attention seekers. You don’t have to walk them out, pet them often, of play fetch with them. Cats care less and often spend the time with themselves. If most of your time is spent on studying or doing house chores, a pet cat is definitely for you.

  1. They love cuddles, too.

Although cats are independent, they can also be great cuddlers. Try lying down steadily while watching TV or reading a book, your cat will slowly approach and nestle on to you. Pet your cat by giving it a throat or ear scratch, and you’ll be thanked with a relaxing purr and a cute-looking face.

  1. They keep mice away.

Not only mice, but bugs as well. Unless your cat is an extremely lazy one, it is your natural defence against pests—and it’s much cheaper than hiring an exterminator. Cats spend a third of their day hunting, so it’s always on the action for something that should not be pestering your home.

Owning a cat has a lot of perks, and these are just a few of its many benefits. However, although these perks may say that cats are less-demanding pets, remember that you still need to provide some TLC for a healthy relationship with your feline friend(s).
