    Plenty of people work and have a cat. They like to sleep a lot.

    I own the best cat in the world. She is an outdoor cat, seventeen years old, named Narco-spaz. I named her after her slightly narcoleptic and spastic behavior as a kitten. She gets in fights all the time, is still alive, and has dominated the front yard, sleeps on the doormat. Only comes around when she wants food. Best Cat Ever!

    One adult cat by itself is okay (and some prefer it)... but a little kitten might need more attention, especially if it's newly separated from its litter. Maybe leave the TV on for it to pounce at while you're gone? I actually second the idea of getting a shelter kitty as well, though understand the dangers of walking into one and exiting with your own personal zoo.

    aren't you afraid she's going to get run over by a car?

    She is 17 years old. If she gets run over by a car that's her fault. But that is part of what I was saying, that she is really street smart. For a cat.

    My cat's name is Pascal and he's only about 5-6 months old... but I usually just call him Li'l Bastard.
    It seems more appropriate.

    I had a bunch of cats growing up, in a rural area. Outdoor cats. Unfortunately, the cars blew down the road and that's how we lost most of them, even the smart ones. Any street smarts they got was learned by a bumper smacking them down on the street. Sigh.

    Getting a cat is a fantastic thing. I myself am thinking of getting a bobcat, a lynx or a serval as a pet. Quite fun things to have around.

    I have one cat, a Maine Coon. She's bigger than the neighbor's Pekingese. I have had two cats at a time, and I prefer one cat, because I want a companion animal. Two cats tend to bond with each other rather than with the owner. With this caveat -- spend a lot of time with the cat -- as much as you would with a dog. Play with it, talk to it, teach it its name, teach it words, interact with it. My cat and I have a date every night at 10 pm and she knows it -- I trained her to go sit on this particular little rug at 10 o'clock pm, and she does it -- sometimes I don't even realize what time it is until I feel her looking at me and she's sitting on the rug and sure enough it's 10 pm -- she gets brushed, I check her ears, I wipe her teeth, I clip her nails if it's Sunday -- and then we play, and she gets a treat. She also gets a good 10 minute snuggle every morning. Those two things seem to keep her perfectly happy -- that, and she has perches where she can see outside. Cats like routine, so if you can make one or two daily of giving them attention, they are happy to entertain themselves the rest of the time.

    it depends on the cat. me and my roommates have 3; two of them get along really well, play all the time, spoon with eachother and are adorable. but the 3rd cat doesn't like other cats and they gang up on her and bully her and chase her around.
