Consider adding a feline to your family.

For a long time people believed that cats were great pets for people who weren’t home that much.  And while it is true that cats don’t need to be let outside like dogs do - cats are actually very social animals.  Some like to cuddle, some are more active and playful and some are more independent.  Regardless of their personalities, cats are capable of forming close bonds with “their” humans and can be loving members of your family.  Cats can be trained, too.  Most use their litter box “automatically,” they can learn to use a scratching post, and you can even teach cats to come when called, fetch - and lots of other things!  So consider adding a feline to your family.  You’ll be glad you did!
