Thinking about gettin kitten/cat
Hi, I'm thinkin about gettin a cat/kitten. I was wanting a kitten, but from reading many posts it seems like i might be better off with a cat. I am in college and I live in a 430 ft2 apartment and was wondering if that is enough space for a cat. I currently have a 55 gallon aquarium at my place, but i was wanting something that i can interact with and something that will show love in return. If i were to get a cat, i would adopt. here are just a few quesions that i have:
1-Since i live in such a small space, will odor be bad? I don't want to come home to a smelly place even when i keep up with my dail maintenence.
2- I DO leave to go home on occasion. (maybe once every 1.5-2.5 months) would the cat be okay by itself for 1-2 days?
3- I am really worried about the odor of a cat to begin with, will it smell up my place since it is so small?
4- Should I look for a cat or kitten? I volunteer there and they have kittens and cats. I do have a lot of time on my hands as well. BUT i have this couch that I LOVE and don't want it to get reuined.
OK, those are just a few questions that i could think of...if i have more i will post later.
