For some people, owning an ordinary pet is too boring and dull. That’s why many people prefer exotic animals. While you can’t legally own many exotic animals for safety reasons (such as owning your own tiger or lion), you can legally own many smaller cats.

Some exotic cats you can legally own include servals, bobcats, caracal cats, Canadian and Siberian lynxes, and ocelots. Before you adopt an exotic cat, just remember that all cats need a good home so make sure you can handle an exotic cat in your home.

Cats aren’t just pets; they’re dominant creatures who will quickly find ways to turn you into their subservient slaves so be prepared to become a cat servant whether you get an exotic cat or not.
