I've been thinking of a cat for a long time now but I can`t understand how to keep him or her. For my dog, we follow a daily routine right from the morning going into bedtime. Well, I have no idea about keeping a cat.Hoping you could answer my questions below. ---Do they need to be kennel trained? ---Are they more of a 'loner' animal?--Do they need a companion? ---Do you let your cat/kitten loose around the house?---Can I just confine him to one room? ---Do you have a daily routine that you follow daily?--please share them! ---Thinking about a longhair kitten, maybe a mixbred from the pound.Will the shed? ---What are some good thing and bad things about owning a male kitten? A female kitten? ---Will there be a "cat smell" in the house?---I dont want visitors knowing that we have a cat in the house by just the smell of the house. ---One last thing....I heared that males will spray! Will this be a problem that I will be stuck with -with a male cat? Will neutering him lessen the chance of him spraying? Sorry for a lot of questions.Please answer them if you can...even if it is just one question you have time for!
