am i the only one that read it and thought the OP is advising to adopt humans


*usually get along, not “guaranteed”


Two cats is actually easier than one cat. Litter cleaning’s similar cuz you’re doing it anyway, same with feeding, vet bills are doubled but that’s really the only downside. If you aclimate them correctly they’ll play and occupy each other so you don’t have to be the sole source of stimulation, and if you’re lucky they’ll cuddle and it’s very cute.


Definitely not guaranteed to get along. The only two cats I’ve known that “hate” each other, as in can’t stand to be in the same room together without physically fighting, were sisters.
