Alternatives When You Cannot Have A Cat?

What can you do if you're desperate for a cat but genuinely can't have one, for reasons of expense or living situations?


1. Pet other poeple’s cats

You can go to your friends, cat cafes, animal shelters, etc. to pet, snuggle, and lavish with love. You can even offer to pet-sit.

4. Loving is not owning

They may be the world's most popular pet and you may have a lot of joy when owning it, but our furry feline friends have plenty of downsides. Cats expect their human to revolve their whole world and when you don't cater to their every whim they can become a nuisance. Do not own a cat if you cannot devote your time, energy and time to it. Love them by saving cats around the world, do not add more abandoned cats.
