My favourite pet is a cat. I live in a big city but I'm lucky to have a garden. My parents wanted a dog. They said ''A dog will protect us''. But dogs bark, need a lot of attention. You need to play with them, walk them and wash.
Cats are a big different. They are quiet, proud and very clean. They don't need a lot of attention. If you have a cat flap in the door, your cat can go out, hunt and return in the same way. As you see, cats are very independent. I think cats are people's best friends. ;D
