Beautiful Cat Breeds in India That You Will Love to Have As Pets:
People say it is not possible to “own a cat” and it is not completely wrong. Cats are territorial – they attach themselves more to territory than to humans. Thus, cats are fundamentally different from dogs. But they make wonderful companions as they are intelligent, affectionate, and self-sufficient. They are low- maintenance, mostly keep to themselves, don’t stink, and are quieter creatures when compared to dogs. As with any other pet, they become family members. Every time a cat meows and rubs itself against your leg, looking with those soulful eyes, it is bound to warm your heart away.
Cats are capable of living up to 20 years, depending on the breed. Below is a list of some of the best cat species in India:
