They do not make a lot of noise. Compared to dogs who bark to show if they are happy, sad or sensing trouble, a cat will just purr and hiss. You will never get a complaint from your neighbours that your cat is too noisy.

Cats are patient and will just purr if they are hungry and will wait for dinner. Don't expect kitty to make a lot of commotion when it is meal time. Your cat will just wait beside its dish and wait for food to be served.

They are loving and generous, too. Cats are hunters like their feline cousins the tiger, cheetah, jaguar or leopard. True, they cannot make a real kill in your garden, but they will manage to bring a present for you even though it will probably make you throw up. It is just their way of showing they love you.

Unlike dogs who mangle their toys, cats take care of their possessions. They will covet these and even hide them. So if you think that your kitty has yet lost again a furry ball, think twice. She/he might just be hiding and collecting them.
