Imagine being handed a basket of tiny purring fur balls that obtain all the love one will ever need in life. Yes, cats make the best pets by far. Not only are they loyal – they are perhaps the cutest beings alive and are more cost-effective than dogs.

To begin with, how can you deny the adorableness of a little feline? Kittens and cats alike are just so cute: tiny wet noses, poofs of silky fluff larger than Einstein’s hair, deep soulful eyes and ears that perk up when being called. Cats love to roll around on their backs and play-fight, which is just so funny and somehow precious at the same time.

Just as important, cats are amazing comforters. Whenever I’m upset, my cat can sense my sadness and automatically rushes over to comfort me. Cats can detect a vast range of emotions, and are somehow always able to tell when you might need a little extra love.

Many argue that dogs make better pets than cats. However, according to a study by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, cats cost $570 less than an average-sized dog per year.

Not only are they way cheaper, cats don’t have to constantly be taken out for walks or groomed. They also leave behind minuscule chunks of feces, perfectly deposited in a little orderly box, whereas one will have to haul out the backyard shovel to scoop up a dog’s doings.

All in all, cats are clearly the best pets by far. They’re a triple threat; adorable, comforting, and cost-effective. So the next time you find yourself being handed a basket of tiny purring fur balls, just go ahead and whisk it home. Cats, I can ensure you, are definitely purr-fect.
