Wow. This could not be more wrong. Living with cats who don't like each other can be horrible. And there are many, many cats who thrive being the only cat in the home. "Only cats" have an extra special bond with their humans.
Before our pair of sisters we had a lone cat. She was actually sharing the household with our dog. She was the kitten we adopted after having the dog for about 5 years. When our dog died, she did get more clingy with us. She absolutely hated it when we left her. We got an earful of her wailing at us when we returned home. But she also did fine as a loner cat. She had plenty to look at and play with. There were no shortages of ledges to sleep on.Hmmm after reading some more and looking at your responses, I am still unsure.
Since I don't know, I'm guess I should wait a little awhile - see how Chase adjusts to being in the apartment. Right now, he is super clingy and follows me everywhere, sleeps right next to me.
At my mom's house, he would follow me sometimes, but not like he does here. Makes me think he's lonely or something? But everytime I leave and come back, he is sleeping.
Why is this so tough? lol
lol ikr? or that three children is a terrible idea.Almost as ridiculous as saying three cats is the worst number to own.
as though they are facts, not just your opinion, how do you think owners of single cats feel about statements like that? Actually, most of our members are probably smart enough to dismiss those posts, but still...the myth of the lone cat being a happy cat is just that, a myth.
are just as ridiculous.The most dangerous number to cats to have is actually three
While I do appreciate sarcasm as it's my second language, it's not really my "vast knowledge" you should respect, it's my common sense and consideration of other people's feelings.I respect your vast knowledge
If MowMow could read, he would crap in your shoes right now. He *tolerates* SB but seriously, if I packed up the kitten and shipped him back to the shelter right now MowMow would be the happiest cat in the universe.
I say we start a new thread JUST to debate this.Just like the innie-outie debate.
I totally agree with you and I know from experience. That is why I have one cat even tho I would love more.Wow. This could not be more wrong. Living with cats who don't like each other can be horrible.
