Whether you are a dog person or a cat person, you have to admit that felines are among the most beautiful and interesting creatures in the animal kingdom, right? They are some of the most popular animals in the United States, with 29% of Americans owning a cat.

Many people believe that cats are easy to maintain, unlike dogs, but this is totally wrong. According to animal experts, every animal has different needs, regardless of their breed, age, gender and so on. Just like dogs, there are some more independent cat breeds than others, while certain cat breeds hate being left home alone for too long and seek the attention of their people every time.
