Yes cats are grand, they pee where ever they want, the stench from the urine is next only to a skunk, which can cause you to loose a security deposit. If you have a litter box they will track the kitty litter all over you house then jump up on your food preparation areas. If your pregnant don't change or get near the kitty litter. They will sharpen their claws on any nice fabrics they find. They leave cat hair every where. If you allow your cat to roam outside it will bring disgusting "gifts" home, hopefully already dead. During the plague, cats where a vector for bring fleas from hunting rats and mice into homes sickening or killing their masters.
Yeah cats are great!
