Domesticated cats have been around for many centuries. They are one of the most wonderful beings on the planet, and they are helpful to humankind in many ways possible.

Dogs are known to be man’s best friendbut humans are cats’ best friendsCats are similar to dogs as much as they are different, but we can be sure that they are the perfect companions in all walks of life. I mean, they were not worshiped as gods in ancient Egypt for nothing, weren’t they?

Advantages of Having a Cat

Having a cat comes with a lot of advantages. Before I share a couple of training guides to help you manage your cat, let us look at the bright side of caring for one.

  • Perfect stress reliever:

Cats are the best stress relievers. If you are suffering from some sort of mental disorders or mental health problems, having a cat is perfect. They can help lower your stress levels and help you cope. Just like dogs, they can easily detect things that we humans visibly can’t, like emotions.

  • They can strengthen your immune system

It is advisable to have a cat especially when you have a newborn baby in the family. They will help you strengthen your immune system by providing you with sufficient good bacteria.

Children are advisable to play on warm soil with bare feet, so it means it is always good to have a companion during playtime. According to a study, scientists also found out that children who grew up with pets including cats grow up to be healthier adults.

  • Very Low Maintenance

If you really want a pet and a new member of the family but you don’t have excessive time, then a cat is the best option.

Dogs are very high maintenance. You have to bathe them every now and then, take them out to play, etc. However, cats are very independent animals. They can bathe themselves, they don’t get bored, and they just sleep all day. They can get energetic sometimes, but that is when you’ll have to brace yourselves from scratch marks!

Disadvantages of Having a Cat

Along with the advantages come the disadvantages of having a cat. We can’t always have everything, can we? There are a couple of problems and difficulties you will face as a cat owner.

  • They have sharp nails

If you’re not careful enough or if you become too playful with them, you can get scratched! This is how a cat plays and we can’t do anything about it.

  • Difficult to train in the beginning

They can be difficult to train especially if they have never had any sort of training before. So this is a challenge for you as a cat owner.

  • Bad cat hygiene = Smelly house

Even though cats do bathe themselves, it is still important to check on them every once in a while. If you don’t, your house will smell!

    This is so amazing. I never thought that my cat could do some things she is doing these days. I always wanted a system like this one and wasn’t able but now i have it.

  2. Most cats learn from their mothers at a very young age to use a litter box, but recently-adopted stray or feral cats may not know how to use a litter box.[1] Sometimes even a well-trained cat may seem to “forget” and start relieving himself around the house. The reasons for this lapse in litter box training may vary from medical issues to simple tastes and preferences.

  3. Cats are admittedly harder to motivate than dogs, but rewards such as high-value food (pure protein will do the trick), play and stroking are effective incentives. Training is best done in bursts: cats’ short attention spans mean frequent sessions of a few minutes are preferable to long, intensive ones. The cat also needs to be in the right frame of mind: relaxed yet alert, not too hungry but not too full.

  4. If the cat performs the desired action, such as voluntarily exploring an unfamiliar object, they are rewarded. If food cannot be delivered immediately, a verbal marker (such as “good”) is used to buy time to get the reward; over time, the cat will associate the word with treats. One of the initial exercises is getting the cat used to a “relaxation blanket”, on which they learn to relax, sleep and play and which is then used to make them more comfortable with the other exercises.

  5. Cats want to use ultra-clean litter boxes and tend to prefer roomy, open boxes. Try switching to jumbo litter boxes without covers.

  6. Cats are very independent animals. They can bathe themselves, they don’t get bored, and they just sleep all day. They can get energetic sometimes, but that is when you’ll have to brace yourselves from scratch marks!

    The most effective training sessions are usually short, but frequent and natural. It is important to remain calm, patient, and, before all, persistent. Don’t give up if your cat doesn’t progress as quickly as you had hoped.
