Reasons why cats are Great

They are Independent- If you want a pet but have to travel a lot, cats can basically take care of themselves(as long as you leave them enough food).

They are Playful- Depending on what breed you get and what age they are, cats can be very playful with kids.

They are Cute- Cats' features, especially kittens', are similar to human babies' features. The reason why we as humans think other animals like kittens and puppies are cute is because they have big eyes and small noses, similar to those of human babies.
