Cats are solitary creatures that can look after themselves when their owners are out, making them ideal pets for those who have a busy lifestyle. On the whole, a cat is low maintenance compared to a dog, and they make relaxing, affectionate companions - but it's all on their terms.
Let's be honest, you're just not the outdoorsy type, right? You don't want a pet that needs to get out for walks every day, you want a furry companion to snuggle up with in front of the TV at the end of a busy day, so you should get a cat. However, just remember that while dogs have owners, cats have staff!
