…are better than one! 🙂
By having two or more cats, you are able to enjoy the true social nature of cats and their relationship with each other. Cats who have a playmate tend to be more socially well-adjusted and avoid behavior problems such as shyness, biting, hissing, being frightened and hiding when in the company of people that they don't know.
Cats need stimulation during the day. Studies show that animals left alone in the house for most of the day have brains that weigh up to 25% less than those that live in the street.
In Switzerland, an anti-cruelty law was passed requiring people who are buying either cats or dogs to buy two instead of one. It is the nature of animals to have company of their own kind.
Cats are much less likely to gain weight due to lack of activity, and to suffer related illnesses.
They are less likely to cause damage or ruin furniture out of boredom.
If your schedule requires to spend long periods away, two or more cats will keep each other company and they will remain more calm during your absence.
If people end up bringing back an adopted cat due to behavior problems, most often they adopted only one cat instead of two.
Your cat will remain more playful and youthful into his or her later years with a companion.
The workload for two cats remains relatively similar to one cat.
You don't need more space for a second cat.
Because two cats are better than one!
