The Advantages of Having a Cat in Your Home with Kids

Cats are wonderful pets for children. They are known to be very affectionate towards their owners and often enjoy spending time with them.

Cats are known to be great pets for people who live in small spaces, and can even be trained to use a litter box. This makes them the ideal pet for those who want the benefits of an animal companion without the property damage that some other larger animals might cause in and around the home.

Stressed? A study from Oxford University found that living with a pet reduced stress by up to 68%. These little furry companions help reduce blood pressure and improve mood because of their calming presence.
