Do Cats Love their Owners like Dogs?

You may be asking yourself; do cats love their owners? The answer… yes! Of course, they love their owners! Although they may not show their affection as extremely as a dog will, they often care for their owners very much. Cats have a more independent personality than a dog and therefore will often wander on their own until they are prepared to be affectionate. Cats act on their own time rather than ours. Cats and dogs are very different in this aspect as dogs are often affectionate at any given time. If you are searching for a more independent pet which does not require a significant amount of attention (all-day long attention like a dog); it would be best to adopt a cat.

Cats vs Dogs

There are some fundamental differences in cats and dogs; let’s list several of these!

  • Cats can be left alone all day whereas dogs cannot be left alone for long periods of time
  • Cats clean themselves whereas dogs need their pet parents to give them baths
  • Cats can live in a small apartment whereas dogs often need more room
  • Cats sleep the majority of the day whereas many dogs are active throughout the day
  • Your Decision
