August 8, 2019 is declared to be International Cat Day to celebrate all things cats. There is no better reason to discuss why cats make great pets.
Out of 7.6 million companion animals entering shelters, 1.3 million cats are adopted each year. And, it's no surprise why! Cats make wonderful pets for families and couples on-the-go. Cats are independent and do not require full boarding like dogs. They can self potty train and do not require outdoor trips to the bathroom. They are kid-friendly and play well with other animals.
Cats can play with other domestic animals outside and bond with pet owners. This International Cat Day, consider cat adoption at local animal shelters and cat rescues.
