Should I get a cat?

So, I don’t like cats much - only ever owned one & he was a pain in the arse - but some friends’ cats just had 5 kittens & the TV & the 6yo are bugging me DAILY about us taking one. I am slightly negative to the idea & the teenager is liek

should I be the sensible tyrant and preserve the furniture or should I give in to the cuteness and the nagging?

  • preserve the furniture
  • give in to the cuteness
  • meh

Best thing about them is that they fend for themselves. If they can get in and out during the day, even better

We have an inside cat (because we live near 2 main roads an a train line) and she seems pretty happy. I work from home most of the time and can never really find her to hang out in the day time. Then in the evening she’s pretty sociable.

Obviously not all cats are the same though

Cats are shit though. There’s are reason that dogs are called “all time dogs”, because they’re the best

That dog is amazing and I share your pain around having a family pet out down after declining health.

We also got a rescue cat who had previously been an indoor cat and shows no interest in ever being outside (we tried to invite her to the garden in summer and she took one step out then bolted back inside and hid under a bed for an hour :crying_cat_face:)

Dogs and cats are both good.

Anyone who loves one and hates the other can consider themselves my enemy.

And if you hate both woe betide you!
