Part of what makes having a cat so enjoyable is that they are quite independent. As long as they have food, water, and litter, they will be happy and healthy in most cases. Cats also have an amazing ability to keep their coats clean, but it requires a lot of effort.
This fact suggests that cats spend 30% of their waking hours grooming themselves. With all of that consistent cleaning, it is no surprise that a cat’s coat is almost always soft while smelling fresh. Personally, I can’t say the same about a dog’s fur coat. That’s why it’s important to give your dog showers constantly!
