It is always an uncalled discussion amongst your peers and family members to decide between a cat and a dog when you want to adopt a pet. Cats and dogs are two species with their significant differences. But how would those differences impact your relationship with your pet or your decision to adopt a companion if you can choose only one?

Here below we have some tips and ideas that will help you to choose a pet as a companion:

>Dogs are pack animals and Cats are loners: Ideally, dogs are hardwired with a pack instinct that generally makes them social, friendly, and all too happy to belong to a family or even a single person who can provide him with food and leadership. However, most cats are private and nocturnal. Unlike dogs, cats are able to jump and climb, which helps them in hunting and makes it calmer to flee from danger. Cats are very territorial and are much more independent than dogs.

>Consider Space: In general, dogs can be effortlessly happy living in a small apartment, they still need their alfresco exercise. However, if you live in a small apartment a cat can be a brilliant companion. Cats generally get their exercise through play. Cats don't need much area to rove around.

>Costs: Cost is a significant figure to consider when choosing to adopt a pet. Dogs often incline to be more expensive to care for than a cat between food, toys, training classes, daycare, and vet bills. Since cats are self-governing by nature they have learned to care for themselves and generally only rely on their human for food.

So, keep the above facts in mind before adopting a pet for your house.
