Anonymous:hey all! I really really want to get a cat as a pet. I've never got one before so I really need your help with some stuff.
Firstly, I wont be home for 8-9 hours a day, 5 days in a week as I go to school and my mum and dad work.
so do you think it's okay to get a cat? also, how old should it be and what breeds do you recommend for a beginner like me?
Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

Anonymous:with placid cats like persians that will probably sleep all day long while you're away it may be easier but active cats will ruin your house out of boredom if there's no one to entertain them. you will have to look for a very very calm and placid cat. probably also an older cat because kittens have more energy and need more attention.
Anonymous:I think personally because you lead a busy life at this stage with work and school it would be best not to have any pets unless your going to put the time into their interest. If you just want them part time, again your not doing any favors for the cat and yourself. So go and enjoy your life while your young.When your retired then think about getting yourself a cat by then you will appreciate each other better All the best.
People are waiting to help.
