    *Cough* There is nothing wrong with being a crazy cat lady .. The kitties will love you forever and ever if you succumb to their feline charms. I should know, I own 1 and have kind of adopted 4 others, well feed, pet then kick them out (not literally).

    If you want only one then get only one. Don't let anyone pressure you.

    Cats are fantastic. They are so independent, not like dogs. I currently have a dog, who is in fact crying downstairs right now. Probably wants junk food. He's cute and all, but cat's are so much better at withstanding the force of my disinterest. I miss having a cat, but I do see a cat in my not too distant future.

    Cats!

    Oh, and yeah, get one. My old cat was on her own, and she was fine. Her only issue is that we found her on the street as a kitten and she's half feral. But this wouldn't have been a problem if we hadn't let her roam around outside. Two will probably be too much of a handful, and you can never know if they'll love each other, or turn your place into a war zone.

    New Name for "Crazy Cat Lady" = Spinnster

    Yeah, the pushy breeder would piss me off too.

    My next kitty will either be a Siamese, Maine Coon, or one of those bad ass leopard spotted house cats.
    If I could own a dwarf black panther, I'd totally do it.

    I am pretty ambivalent towards cats, but cats love me for it and take any chance to sit on me.

    My understanding is it's sort of like pringles. You could stop at one and not become a crazy cat lady, but it damn well may be against the laws of nature.

    Don't take on more pets than you can handle. That's a big part of being a responsible pet owner.

    Getting a cat can mean a commitment as long as 2 decades. If your cat is like mine & lives to 17 & needs eye surgery & medication, then you'll be happy you only got one. They can cost more & more money as they age.

    Cats are by nature solitary animals anyway. The kitten will be fine alone. Just spend lots of time playing with it in the evening.

    You don't need two. I'm hoping to get a pet soon too. I'd like a dog and a cat. And maybe a bird.....and some fish. maybe I'll just stick to the dog for now. Dogs are harder to train than cats (either that or I was exceptionally lucky with my Khyil cat), and I don't feel quite ready for a new cat.

    saturned,
    rag doll kitty, very nice.....they sound so cute. I wouldn't get two if you aren't prepared for it. Just make sure Kitty has loads of toys, and a scratching post, and shut the doors to any off limit rooms (and I'm sure you don't need to be told this, but I had a flat mate who couldn't work this out with her cats, fresh kitty litter every day or they will pee and poop through the rest of the house. They are very clean animals, but they won't use the kitty litter if it's been used too many times.) Cats are awesome, and very easy to have as pets.

    Today my cat climbed tentatively on my desk while I was dressing for work -- despite the fact that I verbally scold him each time he has tried to climb up in the past (and immediately stopped)... he KNOWS he is not supposed to be up there and kind of snuck up this time before I could see him... and when I yelled at him from the room to get down, he did... in a manner which knocked everything off my desk onto the floor as he ran and jumped the dog gate and disappeared down the hall.

    After I cleaned that mess up, I went downstairs to discover the pretty rose that my roomie had gotten last night but foolishly left sitting on the counter had been dragged to the floor and into the living room, and then shredded into lots of tiny little pieces. The culprit was just sitting there, sniffing at the mess nonchalantly, waiting for me to feed him breakfast.

    That is the problem with cats.

    What, considering it's derived from dogs?

    Yes, I find dogs to be the exact opposite... too eager to please, demanding attention, codependent types.
    It's cats that are bitchy!

    I guess the cat lobby is stronger than we realized.
