Why do people buy Cats?

is it because their cute or because their cheaper than a dog or is it that they buy cats because people can't afford a dog so they buy a cat so people aren't alone in their house?

Mine does. He follows me room to room and jumps on my lap while watching tv. He sleeps at foot of my bed.

Well all of the above and because some ppl prefer cats. They are cuddly and cute and they are rather easier than dogs to take care of.

Some people are just cat people. Also some people don't have time for a dog but still want a pet. Since cats are a bit more independent it works for them.

AMA71832 do you like cats or dogs
Report as
I like both equally, to be honest. I have a cat only because I don't have time to take care of a dog's need for attention. And since I live alone for now, coming home to a living, breathing thing is nice.... Until I have to change the litter box.. :)

Cat's are really good company for people who don't/can't give the attention to a dog that it needs. They are cleaner and more calm (mostly). But I wouldn't say they are cheaper, only because you have to buy cat litter too and they are picky eaters. And if they're anything like my cat they'll eat and poop.. eat and poop.. eat and poop.... But they're affection (when THEY feel like it) is worth it. :)

Nope, cats aren't cheap! Vet bills can be what parents shell out to their pediatricians. But they're worth it, nothing like a purr monster laying in your lap.

Haha! Agreed! :)

@Mortalmoron (no offense) cats make fine pets, they stay indoors, eat, do their business in their litter box (their moms train them as kittens) and sleep on the bed and if I'm lucky, I get to sleep there too!

I grew up with a dog, our family always had a dog but when I moved out, I'd wanted a dog but they area lot of work and I didn't have a fenced-in yard for a dog to play in. I didn't think it would be fair to a dog to have him cooped up in the house by himself while I worked. Cats are more independent and having two would be companionship for each of them. Have always had at least two. Now have three but no more. They're nice to come home to when you live alone. They don't have to be bought though, one of mine was born here, another was adopted from a shelter and my third, I bought from a local breeder. The adopted one was seventeen when I got her, she's twenty now, she is my Sunshine! Cats are fine companions...

Ellipsical

The only bad thing about a cat is the litterbox. But people must love them very much to put up with that thing.

Scoop twice a day, clumping litter, no dust or odor. Rather scoop than change a diaper.
