    My friends told me that getting a cat should be a good idea. Well, I think so too...

    Why? It can easily get a little lonely in my place, considering the fact that I live alone in place a little bit big for only 1 person. Honestly, I prefer dogs, but I don't really have that much free time to walk it around and play with it outside the apartment, and I don't like going outdoors too much...

    Also, if you think that getting a cat's a good idea, can you please recommend me a breed that goes well indoors...

    Edit: if I'm gonna get a cat, I'm just gonna adopt one from one of those shelters. Also, don't worry, I'm not gonna declaw it. That is, if I get a cat...

    My advice as an owner of 2 cats:

    Be prepared for your furniture to be scratch even though you got a scratching post for them
    Be prepared to buy a lot of Litter ( toilet paper for cats) and clean those up every day.
    Be prepared to have fur all over your house, since indoor cat shed a lot more than outdoor cats.
    Be prepared for your cat to play at a certain time that can wreck the house, which can be annoying if you aren't playing with them.

    If you want a good cat but like Dogs, get a Maine Coon. They are essentially Dogs in cat skins I.E their personality is very dog like, but they are more independent as a cat. They do require brushing though.

    Declawing, while not encouraged, does prevent a lot of the destruction.

    That's a bit overboard y'know. Cats can be taught not to do these things.


    You don't actually have to clean the litter box everyday, once a week will do, and in some cases even longer.
    For the fur, get a proper brush. Brushing a cat will let you get rid of excess fur in a controlled way.
    For the furniture scratching part I can't say that they do too much damage, but that may just be my cat. Rugs will help keep that damage to a minimum, with proper nail cutting every once in a while (10 days to 2 weeks) though if you're getting a grown cat then It might be difficult if they're not properly used to this.
    If you plan on letting your cat out every once in a while then be sure to neuter him/her. It'll keep wild cats from propagating. They're a real problem in the ecosystem y'know, America has had over a hundred extinctions because of wild cats. If you don't neuter her then letting them out even once in a while is off the books.

    Should you get a cat? If you're not someone who can take care of someone, probably not a good idea.

    Now, should you get a cat girl? Yes!
