There are many stereotypes about cats. Some people say theyre aloof and that theyd rather sleep under a bed all day than interact with their owners. Some people say theyre fickle and that theyre just as likely to scratch or snarl at you as they are to meow and cuddle with you. But with proper training and treatment, cats can be the ideal pet.
