So we decided to get a cat... mostly because we both really WANT another pet since the dog was dognapped, but both of us work during the daytime and don't want to have a pet that will be desperatly crossing its legs by the time we get home. He's a cat person anyways, while I'm naturally a dog person, and we're hoping to find a cat with a more doggy personality so that both of us will be happy with the creature.
Furthermore, we're both allergic to cat hair (and dog hair as well!) and it'd be nice to find a dog like cat which doesn't make us tear up and sneeze uncontrollably
So why do 2 people who are allergic to pets and work during the day WANT a pet? The dog was like a kid to us, and that's always nice when you're a couple who doesn't want a human child... something you can care for, something that's always there for you, something to be a 3rd wheel in a way and something to keep you company when the other person is away.
What do I want to know?
what sort of cat should I look for? what should we expect? what do we need to do to prepare to get one of these creatures? tips would be much appreciated!
