5 Reasons Why Cats Are a Perfect Match for Townhome Living

At Blue Fern Homes, we make it our mission to provide phenomenal townhomes in some of the best areas throughout the Pacific Northwest for our homeowners to grow and thrive in for years to come—and we know how important it is to have a pet as a part of the family. 

If you’re looking for a furry friend that is perfect for townhome living while providing you with a strong sense of companionship, minimal energy and everlasting love—you’ll definitely want to look into owning a cat. Continue reading to find out more about why these small felines make for the perfect addition to your Blue Fern townhome. 

Independent creatures

For those who live a busy lifestyle but still love the feeling of sharing a bond with a pet—you can easily get the best of both worlds when you have a cat. Taking care of a cat requires less responsibility than some other animals, and they’re very self-sufficient creatures that can flourish with an owner who provides them with enough food, water, care, affection and play-time. Additionally, cats don’t need much space to feel comfortable, unlike most dogs—and since they use a litter box, you won’t have to worry about needing a yard to take them outside. In fact, felines prefer playing in tiny spaces indoors, such as boxes and crevices—and they can certainly entertain themselves for hours on end with a few toys and a cozy townhome to explore. 

An unbreakable bond

Cats are not only adorable, soft and graceful, but they're also fiercely free-spirited, curious, and loyal—and can make for amazing lifelong companions in your townhome. Whether you live alone, with your partner or with your friends and family—there’s no connection quite like the one between a pet and its owner, and cats are one of the best creatures to form a strong bond with. All cats have their own characteristics and personalities, so when you are looking to add another fluffy member to your family, get to know a few different felines and make sure to choose a rescued cat that matches your lifestyle—and keep in mind that you’ll never regret making the choice to give a cat a new, loving home in your Blue Fern townhome.

Decrease stress

It’s no secret that life can become stressful or overwhelming at times, and some days, there’s nothing we want to do more than go home and crawl into bed to relax and unwind—but with a kitten to come home to, decompressing and relieving stress is easier than ever. According to a recent study, cat owners are more likely to have better psychological health than people who don’t own pets—and being able to come home to care for and play with your cat in your Blue Fern townhome can give you an unparalleled sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. From their loud purrs and their affectionate snuggles to their rambunctious personalities and playful tendencies—cats are guaranteed to provide a much-needed serotonin boost for their owners on a frequent basis. 

Environmentally conscious

Living a green lifestyle is something that Blue Fern Homes places at the forefront of our values, and owning a cat is a great choice for potential pet owners looking to practice eco-friendly habits in their townhomes. Studies have shown that the lifetime resources needed to feed and care for a cat have a significantly smaller carbon footprint than that of other animals—including dogs and hamsters. Plus, most cats prefer fish to beef or corn, which is much better for the environment. Ultimately, owning a cat is not only a win for you and your well-being, but for the environment as well. 

Turn your house into a home

There’s no doubt that owning a cat is an incredibly rewarding experience for everyone involved, and they’re truly the perfect companion for townhome living. With ample space, functional layouts and innovative designs from Blue Fern to give you and your furry friend plenty of room to grow, thrive and live in for years to come—you’ll have no problem turning your house into a home with your new best friend. 

When you’re ready to fall in love with a new cat, be sure to check out local shelters and rescues throughout the Seattle area, and get ready to form a remarkable friendship beyond comparison.
