Cats may seem like solitary animals, but most of them crave companionship. It’s a good idea to get two cats, especially if you’re out of the house during the day. Not only will your cat be less lonely, but they’re also less likely to get destructive if they have someone to play with during the day. If you already have a full-grown cat, it’s a good idea to get a kitten. Otherwise, your best bet is to adopt two littermates when choosing your new furry family member.
