Cats in more so because they are know to lower your stress level—they don’t require much care as you would have to give as for a dog, they are very independent—and lower the amount of anxiety in your life.

Now there are many breeds of cats out there so do your research and find the best fit for you. One good site I found was Cats Around The Globe. They have a lot of information on different breeds and cat stats to help you choose. Now I chose the Pixie-bob for many reasons. Did my research and found out the Pixie-bob is a very healthy cat needing very little meds and vet care, This is a healthy, hardy cat breed and genetic disorders are rare. The Pixie-Bob is described as highly intelligent, strongly bonded to its family, curious and playful, but not destructive, and getting along well with both children and other pets. Almost all Pixie-Bobs like to be in the same room as their owners, and will follow their owners around the house. Other personality characteristics, are head bunting; Chirping “language” (communicating with owners and other Pixie-Bobs) by different chirps; Most don’t meow often, and some don’t meow at all. Being quite dog-like in devotion, intelligence and trainability. They are a unique breed that bonds strongly to a single individual and/or family for life. Pixie Bobs are solid, muscular cats with a heavy bone structure. Pixie Bobs are intelligent and loyal cats with a dog-like devotion that makes them excellent companions and affectionate household pets.
