Ever wonder why you like certain people more than others. Some people make you feel special when they are around, like there is some natural connection. The same applies to your pet cats.
A cat and human relationship can last for up to 20 years. Therefore, the cat you bring home must have the same personality traits as you, allowing you to develop an everlasting bond with your cat for a healthier relationship.
