That's true, but cats do tend to leave fur wherever they rest. Cooler would have to keep a lint roller ready, since cats tend to sleep on clothing, sheets, etc. Then he'll have to deal with a cat's territory "marks", which don't smell particularly nice. Then there's the clawing on the furniture thing. As much as I love cats, they do have their setbacks.
At cat would work out for you cooler. I'm allergic to them, so I don't have one, but they are fairly low maintenance. Keep the litter box clean and feed them when they ask and they are very content, afterall they decide when they want attension for the most part. Very independent animals.
As much I would like to have a pet... I love animals way too much to get one as pet.
The reason? I'm not sure I could take care well ENOUGH for one.
Please, don't ask me anything aboud so called purebreeds etc.!
Natural breeding for a pratical purpose is not so wrong as... oh, well.
Oh, I tend to get carried away sometimes. Ok... usually...
Still... I would r e a l l y like to have a pet... but the need of any such animal is more important to me than my... well... likes.
