Cats are the most popular pets in the world. I seem to hear the objections of dog-owning friends, but let me state that the source of this information is Scientific American magazine, not me. These little friends, whom we can see for the first time in works from the Ancient Greek period, have not only colored our homes with their cuteness and crazy movements, but have become our closest friends. Of course, it is not possible to ignore their popularity on social media today.
If you are a cat owner, I think you already know how indescribable this situation is. If you are undecided about owning, if you have reservations, I would like to write to you about the benefits of owning a cat, which has also been proven by scientific research.

4) It reduces the possibility of children getting allergies.

in 2002 at the National Institutes of Health In a published study, it was stated that children who spent their first year with cats were much less likely to develop allergies.
