Yes, it's a misconception born of the fact that cats have to separate into territories in order to have only 1 cat per source of food and water. All my strays live alone, in this sense. But they do seek company. And when they get used to another cat, they enjoy the company very much. I've noticed that Prince will refuse to go home when there are cats he likes around. When those leave, he soon agrees to go home. And if there are no cats downstairs, he's in a hurry to go back home.
