If you’re like me, there is no question which is the better pet: a cat or dog. Ask me that question and cats win 100% of the time, afterall, I am a Bengal cat breeder. Breeding high quality kittens is what I do, it’s my specialty and my passion.
That being said, I understand why this is an “age old debate” and with some help from the infograph below, I am going to outline various reasons cats are better than dogs.
For starters, cats can take care of themselves for longer than 24 hours. While this may not seem important, it is. You don’t have to let out your cat every few hours or so, or take them for walks, which is often a pain in the winter. Another reason cats are better than dogs, is they can bathe themselves. While giving a cat a bath can be fun for the cat, it is not necessary to bathe them often, unlike dogs who can be quite smelly at times. For me, these are reasons enough for cats to win the debate, but I will continue to explore a few more reasons cats are the best pet.
Next on the list; cats are cheaper than dogs. In one year, cat owners spend less than $1,000, whereas dog owners spend at least $1,500. This approximation included expenses and one-time fees, such as spay and neurting, crates, and a collar/leash. Oh the things I could do with that extra $500!
Lastly, and most importantly, according to a study from the University of Bristol, cat owners are more educated or SMARTER than dog owners. Cat owners typically work longer hours and select more independent pets.
