Adopting a Stray Cat
3 Great Reasons Why You Should
Guest Writer: Alex Roger
Animals have always shown to change human behavior for the better. They help increase happiness and even beat depression. There have been numerous studies and research on this topic but even if you don’t believe in the studies, there are so many people who time and time again have reported how adopting a cat, or a pet has turned their life around.
There is a story of the drug addict, who used to play music on the streets to get his fix, who turned his life around and started an established career after he met an injured cat under a stairwell. He took this cat to vet and began to take care of him. Soon his drug problem ceased to exist, and the duo was happy and making more money than ever. If you want to read the complete story, you can read it here. If a stray cat could bring such a vast improvement in this man’s life, it could do the same for you.
Numerous people who have been beaten by depression have proven that adopting a cat can enable one to gain a better perspective on life. If you’re still on the fence about the idea of adopting a stray cat, we want to give you three reasons why adopting a stray cat will be the best decision of your life.
You will learn real love
It is a fact that somewhere deep inside us, we all are a little broken and in our busy and fast lives, we forget to love. When you adopt a stray cat, you don’t just adopt one you find yourself in the cat.
Taking care of your new cat means you feed him, exercise him, and give him medicines. And in this phase, you learn to love again. That broken piece of you heals when you realize you have just given life to another being.
As your adopted kitty bonds with you, you will realize what tender loving and caring can do for someone. The cat will do it for your soul. You will feel fuller.
You will become more responsible
A house with a cat requires maintenance of litter boxes, feeders and vet visits. More than that, adopted cats need extra care and attention, as they do not trust just anyone at first.
You will have to leave them be, and let them take their own time. Your new cat may often eat alone in the beginning, but it’s not because your feline doesn’t like you. It may take some time for the cat to start trusting you, and when a stray cat has gone through so much, it may take even longer.
Don’t worry though, when he begins to trust you he will come and rub himself against you which is a sign of affection and trust in cat lingo. At the end of the day, a stray cat will teach you patience and make you more responsible both for yourself and the little guy.
You will live in the moment
Once your cat has fallen in love with you, he will fill your life with absolute joy and I know it sounds cheesy and you think every cat owner says this, but they all say it because it is true. Cats are always so calm; you might even believe they are meditating, calm in one position looking at nothing. Then all of a sudden, you see him running around chasing nothing.
You will learn the importance of every second in your life and how important being calm in life is. A cat will fill your life with joy.
There are so many reasons to adopt a cat, and if I were to list them all, it would take me forever. Everybody has different reasons for adopting a cat and many reasons not to. But the life-changing experience that a cat will bring into your life is going to be worth it.
