A LITTLE ABOUT CATS
Cats are hilarious! They are now internet celebrities, and that needs no explanation. But you know what, cats are more than just fluff and fur. They can help you stay healthy, too. According to a 2009 study, cat ownership may reduce the risk of fatal cardiovascular illnesses in humans. Hugging and interacting with these cuties can reduce blood pressure and stress. That’s more than enough reason to adopt a furry friend!
Cats are known for being clean and super low-maintenance. Just like dogs, they need toys, premium food, veterinary care, and other essential supplies, but they are not as demanding. In fact, cats generally wouldn’t mind if you get busy for a while for work or to take care of the garden. Most of them just sleep throughout the day, anyway.
While there is no scientific evidence that these animals have nine lives, they are still good representations of resurrection and rebirth. Moreover, the reputation of domestic cats is linked to mighty big cats like lions and are sometimes seen as kings that bestow wisdom and judgment upon their subjects. Well… that’s us! We are the subjects!
In ancient Egypt, caring for a cat meant protecting their home and bringing good luck. Initially, they were just seen as great house pets and helpful eliminators of pests. It was only after a few decades that they were seen as sacred. Many ancient Egyptian deities were depicted with feline features, like Bastet, a goddess with the head of a cat and a body of a woman.
If you’re thinking of adopting a new cat, consider giving a black cat a home. Do you know that black cats are often left behind at shelters? Whether potential pet parents are drawn to felines with unique patterns and coloring, or subconsciously scared of the bad luck myth, it’s an absolute disservice to the wonder and beauty of these creatures. Black cats are not bad luck. They are beautiful, and they are great additions to your growing family!
