Heh true, but all the purrs and meows, greeting you at the door and rubbing against your feet, sitting on your lap when you're on the computer... well, those do come at a price. Sure, there's also the cat litter, cat food, yowling in the middle of the night, shedding everywhere, scratching the furniture. But when you think about the little ball of fur that loves you unconditionally, it all just goes away.
We would actually have two cats right now if our landlady would allow pets. Yeah, two, because nobody would be at home during the day, since I'm actually at work all day -- though we've started working from home now so we can do overtime and work on Saturday too
