Lola and Lexy's Top Five Reasons Cats are Great Pets - Cat World Domination Day

Hello, everyone. This is Lexy checking in with our latest “Top Five” post. Today we’re celebrating Cat World Domination Day with our good pal, Summer. Lola and I put our heads together and decided in honor of today we would put together a list of why cats are great pets.

I present to you our top five reasons cats are great pets!

Lola and Lexy’s Top Five Reasons Cats are Great Pets


1. Cats are Perfect Pets for Small Spaces


If a person lives in an apartment or condo, cats are the purrfect pet for them. Here’s why: 

  • We don’t take up a lot of room and we can take advantage of vertical space. It’s very easy to make a small space enriched for us to make us comfortable and happy.
  • We’re very quiet and won’t disturb your neighbors. Sure, we may get the zoomies from time to time, but overall we’re very quiet pets and you may not even know we’re there.
  • Because we use our litter box, we don’t need to be walked. That means you won’t have to walk up and down multiple flights of steps to walk us, or wait for the elevator in a large building (that are often crowded!)

2. Cats are Very Clean


In case you haven’t noticed, cats groom themselves frequently. We’re very clean! Of course we need to be brushed and need regular nail clippings, but chances are you’ll never have to give us a bath. And Lola says we’ll never stink up your bed or your couch.


3. Cats are Very Photogenic


Let’s be honest here for a second … what would your Instagram feed be without your cat’s photos? We have a variety of facial expressions, our personalities shine in photos, we’re always doing something cute, and we’re just adorable. How many photos of your cat do you have on your phone? I rest my case.

4. Cats Keep Your House Pest Free


Cats are natural hunters, and just because we live indoors doesn’t mean those instincts are gone. Mouse got in the house? Don’t worry, we’re on it. We don’t get mice in our apartment, but we do get water bugs (much to Mother’s dismay.) Lola and I are always on high alert and make sure we protect Mother when one gets in. Lola will chase the bug all night if she has to! Our scent alone just keeps rodents away. I mean, what rodent would want to get in a cat fight with a feline? 

Just a side note – please don’t let your cat eat anything they catch; you never know if it’s poisoned or could be poisonous to your cat.

5. Cats are Good for Your Health


Research says “The presence of pets has been associated with a reduction of stress and blood pressure and therefore may reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.” Our purrs are healing, and the frequency of the vibrations have been known to have positive effects on injuries.

Don't worry, Mommy. My purrs will heal your hand! 



Cats also have a positive effect on your mental health, too. We are emotional support during difficult times, and we’re companionship during lonely times. I could go on and on with this topic, which I just may do in a future post!

  2. We agree with every single one of these! One hasn't really lived until he or she has been owned by a cat.

  4. These are all spot-on, but wait- I saw something in here about cats being great pets- I thought my mom and dad were MY pets? Am I missing something?

  6. (Love Cleo's comment above mine)!

    All of those reasons are perfect and accurate. Mom said she can't imagine my not being here.

  7. Your "top five' are hilarious. HOWEVER my human would disagree with the "cats are quiet" reason inasmuch as I came bounding into her bedroom and pounced on her bed at 4AM thinking it was time for breakfast! And then there's yesterday when we howled & yowled on our way to the vet. Also we have been ACCUSED of NOT being competent mouse-hunters. But that's my sis-fur Paprika's fault. At the sight of a mouse, Paprika, starved for a playmate just pats it with her paw. Useless! But we applaud you on standing up for yourselves in a truly mangificent way. And we enjoyed your scholarly appearance in the glasses!

  16. I am a firm believer in the many benefits of sharing our homes (and our hearts) with pets, especially when it comes to mental health! Any time that I find myself facing a difficult day, my pets seem to know. They are super cuddly, right there to make the day better.
