While the pandemic has helped clear out animal shelters, many people may still be considering adopting a cat for their home. If you’re torn between a cat or a dog, just realize that cats are far more independent and less needy than dogs.

While a dog requires daily walks multiple times a day, a cat is happy just sending you out to buy it treats and catnip. For people in confined living quarters, a cat can be the perfect companion to make your home feel less sterile. In fact, you might even consider adopting two cats if you can so they can keep each other company and plot against you in the meantime.
