Our family has been thinking about getting two cats, probably ordinary domestic cats.
Now I wonder if you think it is appropriate to get a cat at this time of year, because the schools start and the parents work, the cats will be lonely a lot during the day… apart from an hour of lunch of course.
I have read somewhere that it is important when you get a kitten that you give it a lot of time to cuddle and play with…
Is the solution to buy another cat to keep it company?
You had planned to get two cats and you wondered if it was right to do so now.
It is true that you should spend a lot of time with the new family members!
And it is said that the healthiest kittens are born in the spring. But it can go well in any case to get kittens now if you plan a little.
I do not know how many of you are in the family, but you may not all start and end at the same time.
In that case, the cats may not have to be alone for so long during the day.
And then maybe there is someone e.g. grandmother or grandmother who can go up to the kittens and look after them for a while and give them food and clean water on the days when the family is away the most.
If you get two cats, they are accompanied by each other and little kittens sleep a lot during the day.
You said that at lunch they did not have to be alone.
I think that sounds good!
Kittens want food often so it is good if someone can give them some food then.
And do not forget clean water!
So if you sit down and go through your times, you will see that some days someone comes home earlier from school and other days maybe mom or dad can come home earlier.
The kittens quickly learn to adapt to your family’s rhythm.
It will surely go great!
And the most important thing is that you take care of them when you are at home, play with them and cuddle with them!
Cats are very wise and fun friends! Good luck!
