I HAVE COME ACROSS MANY PEOPLE WHO SAY THAT CATS SHOULD BE KEPT IN PAIRS.
HOW FAR IS IT TRUE ?

We've been keeping our cat as a sole pet and he's been all right.

That depends on the cat's personality I guess. Some breeds like Abbies or Bengals are very active and it's recommended that they are kept in pairs so they can annoyentertain each other while you're busy, whereas placid cats like Persians are less demanding and can do well as a sole pet. Of course, you could get a buddy for your placid kitty too if you like. Emotion: smile

P.S. It would be cool if you switched your capital letters off, I have a feeling you're shouting right into my face!

It is not necessarily recommended ... unless like Ruslana mentioned it is an active breed, but that is something that should be considered before getting any of those breeds if you are not committed and don't have the time to drain their energy getting another cat wont solve the problem, they are actually most likely to fight and just cause more trouble, if you're lucky then you'll have two hyperactive cats lol. there is also no guarantee the cat's will get along together they usually don't live in pairs in nature and will fight for territory and will do the same at home. But if you are looking to get another cat it really depends on if they will get along and if you can commit to it.
Emotion: big smilesry about the capital letters.
and i m definitely not shouting right into your face.
thanks for the suggestion.
Ruslana has it pretty much right. It really depends on the cat. I know that when I got my youngest, Nibbler, he came with his sister. We didn't keep the female. Nibbler didn't like it at first. He would walk around the house meowing for her. It was kinda sad. But then he and Billy started getting along and playing and he was fine. My older cat, Kal, is more of a lone cat. He doesn't have much to do with the other two and sometimes even acts a bit aggressive towards Nibbler.
