Why Cat Is The Best Pet

Why cat can live along humans settlements, climates, terrains, reliefs is a remarkable thing. Being small there are a lot of hideouts where can hide, eat, give birth. Their adaptation to humans life is awesome like: do needs in a litter box, adaptation to a new food ( supermarket food), learned to live in

busy city (stray cats).Many can say that cat is the best pet for indoor life.

Cats can wash and seems it never forget that for us is great, no time loss of washing or going out, being a clean pet allows to have success in a new era, humans era.

To not forget about the beauty of this pet, for which was made statues in their owl, maybe the ancient Egyptians know something about these mysterious animals that we still do not know.

Common House Cat Breeds

The list of cat breeds is very long and diverse counting around 73 species, for this subject we will need an entire article.Here is a list of house cat , top 5 in my oppion.

1. Mackerel Cat

Mackerel Cat

Characteristic of this variety is the presence of a line formation, which resembles the letter M, located on the cat’s forehead.

Legend says the Prophet Muhammad he loved cats very much, so he meant his favorite cat by his first name, the descendants of that cat inheriting this trait. Mackerel cats show stripes on the entire surface of the blade, whether continuous or interrupted. The most common varieties are red and brown Mackerel.



2. Tabby Cat

Tabby Cat

Like the Mackerel, Tabby cats have the letter M on the forehead. The difference between the two is the width of the stripes on the body, as well as their pattern.

Tabby cats are wider, forming a maze, whirling, shooting targets, etc. Parallel stripes are especially present on the limbs and on the tail.




3. Tuxedo Cat

Tuxedo Cat

There are 10 types of bicolor cats, identified according to the percentage of the two colors present. Some other varieties of bicolored cats have their own names, such as Tuxedo (frac), Mask and Mantle (Van and Mask), Van, etc.

The Tuxedo cat is a specific type of bicolor cat. She has colored fur only in black and white. White is usually limited to the area of the abdomen, swans, neck, chest, and face.


4. Cat Calico

Cat Calico

The coat of these cats has three colors, white, black and red, spread across the entire surface of the body, in the form of irregular and asymmetrical spots. These cats are almost exclusively females.


5. Scottish Fold

Scottish Fold

All Scottish Folds are born with their straight ears. After about 21 days, the ears of the kitten carrying the gene of the breed begin to bend. Cats with smaller ears and farms are preferred to those with large ears and with a “left” look.

Even with this bend of cartilage, cats express themselves as much as other races with their ears. The large and rounded eyes, the round head, give the cats of the Fold a particular look.

Common Behavior Of House Cat

Cat behavior make them to be one of the most common pet. Cat love to rub up against their owners This movement may involve their entire body or sometimes just their foreheads and cheeks. Most owners see this as a sign of affection and welcome because of this house behavior.

Cats need to scratch surfaces to sharpen their claws but they also use tthis behavior to deposit their scent. Cats have scent glands on their paws and rubbing their paws along objects places their scent there.

Cats meow to communicate with humans. This endearing method of speech is heard in young kittens, to get their mother’s attention but is rarely heard between cats. So when your cat meows to you, it is a special form of cat-to-human conversation.

Common Breeds vs Rare Breeds

Common breeds is a cat adapted much more to the human life instead of rare breeds , most of them made by will.  I will do a comparison between Sphynx Cat vs European Shorthair

Sphynx Cat

  • Origin and history

Lack of hair is a feature that has appeared in many different places and times. The hairless cat was recorded in Latin America in the 1830s. There are also hairless cats findings in France, Austria, the Czech Republic, England, Canada, USA, Mexico, Morocco, Russia, and Hawaii.

The history of hairless cats, or the Sphinx cat, began in the 1960s with the birth of a cat on a farm in Minnesota, when farmers noticed several generations of cats without hair. One of these Sfinx cats lived for 19 years.

  • Care and food

The Sphinx cat needs care, even if it does not have hair. It needs regular washing to remove oil and secretions from sebaceous glands. It is important to know that these secretions are perfectly normal, but the Sphinx cat, due to lack of hair, cannot absorb it. If this oily layer is not removed, it can cause skin problems.

During cold periods, make sure that your Sphinx cat has a warm shelter because he has no fur that could provide protection. Also, when you take it out, apply a protective cream to the animals to prevent sunburn.

  • Life conditions

For the Sphinx cat, the best living conditions are provided by the interior. The primary reason for this “claim” is that the Sphinx cat is not able to survive in hostile conditions. In the absence of fur, the Sphinx cat does not resist cold and avoids sleeping on cold surfaces. And to prevent boredom, you can set up a playground to keep it busy and happy.

European Shorthair

  • Origin and history

There are more than 5 000 years since the cat was domesticated. In ancient Egypt, the first European cat was used to protect barns against pests. The Egyptians venerated the European cat and imposed the death penalty on those who killed this cat. Also, the European cat was mummified before being buried.

The European cat was brought from Egypt to Europe, while other long-haired breeds were brought from Turkey or Iran. Except for the Middle Ages when cats were associated with the devil, starting with the eighteenth century, the European cat became a popular and loved pet worldwide.

  • Care and food

The European cat is a carnivorous animal, that’s why it loves fresh fish and chickens. A well-fed European cat will be active, will have shiny fur and bright eyes. It must be fed 2-3 times a day. Dry food is healthier for her teeth. He needs a high protein diet and will use his own resources to satisfy them. Contrary to general beliefs, cow’s milk is not recommended for the European cat because the proteins present in cow’s milk are too large to digest easily and cause diarrhea or vomiting. Fresh water should be available at all times.

The European cat who lives in an apartment needs a box in which he will make his needs. This box should be emptied daily and changed and thoroughly cleaned at least twice a week. Cats do not like to make their needs in a messy place, and if this box does not find it clean several times in a row, it will find another place to do it. And it might not be the right place!

The European cat is a very clean animal and generally has the sole care of her hygiene by helping her tongue. A European cat when suddenly stops taking care of herself, means she is sick and must be taken immediately to the veterinarian.

  • Life conditions

The European cat feels good in any environment, whether inside or outside. Cats that are kept only outside should have a shelter (especially a barn) as a key element that makes a farm work by controlling the rodent population. A European cat will get out of his mind if he is kept in a small cage for a long time. The European cat is a very good animal.


If you want a rare breed cat or a common breed, you should have one because worth it!
