养猫比养狗好的理由

1. They are more independent

1. 猫比狗更独立
People who work long hours and cannot devote their full attention to their pet during the day should definitely opt for a cat. They can also come and go by themselves via a cat flap. They will often hunt and kill their own food, and generous felines may occasionally bring the bounty home to share it with you whether you like it or not.
工作时间较长,白天无法全心全意陪伴宠物的人士一定要选择养猫。猫咪也可以通过猫洞进出家门。通常情况下会自己捕捉食物,性格慷慨的猫咪偶尔也会带上它的猎物(老鼠)与你分享,不论你喜欢与否。
2. They are far cheaper to own
2. 养猫更便宜
Cats are cheaper in almost every way when compared to dogs. Unless you decide on a show-quality, pure-breed Persian cat, they are much cheaper to purchase than dogs. Food, toys, and beds are cheaper as well as medical care and neutering costs.
不管着眼于哪一方面,养猫都比养狗便宜。除非你决定买一只品质优良的纯种波斯猫,否则买猫就比买狗便宜。猫食、玩具和猫窝也相对便宜,当然也包括更低的医疗和绝育成本。
If you have to go away for a few days, you can simply ask a neighbor to provide food and water for your cat until you return. If you have to leave your cat with a boarding kennel whilst you are on vacation, the price will be almost half of what it would cost for a dog.
如果你不得不离家几天,你也可以在回来前请邻居帮忙给你的猫咪喂食、倒水。如果你计划去度假,打算将猫咪寄养在宠物店,寄养的价格基本是狗狗的一半。

3. They are more convenient

3. 养猫更方便
If you live in a tiny apartment without a balcony or even a windowsill, a cat will be content with a warm place to sit and a simple litter box. Dogs require several walks per day or can become destructive due to pent-up energy.
如果你住的公寓很小,没有阳台,甚至没有窗台,猫咪也能找一处温暖之地待着,再加一个猫砂盆就足够啦。但狗狗每天都得溜几圈,有时候由于能量受到压抑,狗狗会把家里弄得一团糟。
4. They make less noise
4. 猫咪发出的噪音更小
Although cats can create an almighty racket when fighting or mating, this rarely takes place within the home. Apart from the occasional meow and soft purring, cats are usually silent creatures and do not bark at postmen or howl when left alone.
虽然猫咪在打架或交配时会非常吵,但这种情况在家中少见。除了偶尔的喵喵叫以及软萌萌的咕噜声之外,猫咪通常都非常安静,独自在家时也不会对着快递员咆哮或嚎叫。
5. They can clean themselves
5. 猫咪可进行自我清洁
Cats are self-cleaning animals that take great pride in their appearance. Most will go their entire lives without needing a bath and will never roll in a puddle and then shake themselves off over your clean laundry.
猫咪是自我清洁型动物,十分注重自己的外表。大多数的猫一生都不需要洗澡,它们不会在水坑中滚来滚去,然后再将脏水蹭到你干净的衣服上。
Males will occasionally spray the furniture in your home to mark their territory, but this behavior can usually be controlled through neutering or with specialist sprays available from pet stores.
公猫通常会在家具上方便以标记自己的领地,但这一行为通常可以通过绝育或宠物店提供的专业喷雾来控制。
