Introducing kids to pets is a useful and important way to teach them to respect animals. Only through knowledge will they begin to understand why cats do what they do and what shapes them into the loveable pet we all come to adore. Cats are finicky and teachable. They can comfort us like no other animal can. Cats give unconditional love unless you try and rub their tummies, even though they may look like they want you to, it must be on their terms. Kids love facts especially easy ones. Teach children these basic cat facts so they may tell their friends!
