Getting a kitten Friday. Sadly, due to college housing restraints he'll be an indoor only cat. My roommates are lukewarm about the idea and my mom is against it.. But I want one so I'm finna do it anyway.

CALLING ALL CAT OWNERS:
Will the kitten get bored/lonely while I'm working 8 hour shifts and he's all locked up in my room? I almost feel like getting a second one without running bit by my family. Ha. Don't like the idea of the poor guy being alone for so long everyday

Also, when he's older and litter trained he'll have free roam of the house, if that makes any difference

 

 

Is it a kitten kitten or a cat? A kitten will probably get depressed if it doesn't receive much attention for that amount of time. You'd really need 2 of them to keep them happy. If it were a cat, that might be a different story.

Yeah, and if you leave it unattended for too long, it'll run away and you'll have to go see Gertrude to buy another one for 500 coins.

Except in real life they might start to get suspicious when you're going to buy your tenth cat...

Kitten

 

 

Get two or get a full grown cat that you know doesn't mind being left alone. Still though, leaving a kitten for 8 hours means that you're going to get a lot of cat piss all over your room until you train them to use the litter box.

I keep my disposable income as a pet. When it's lonely I work more and I never have to feed it or take care of it when it's sick

Cats are a bit boring, but they definitely don't need the same level of attention that dogs require. I would think it'd be fine alone, but I've never had to keep one locked up in a room all day.

Well - the easy answer is to your question Low levelled. Would you leave a 2 year old kid by itself in a room for 8 hours?

 

Considering that a kitten that has been weaned off it's mother is probably as mature - the answer is no. I hope for your sake you take a few days off work to allow the cat to get used to the new environment you plan on keeping it in before returning to work otherwise you will have one sad cat. If anything ask your roommates to keep an eye on the cat or atleast let the cat roam the house - don't keep it just in your room. 

 

For the first day - when you are with it, keep it in your room with the litter tray and food bowl and water e.t.c and it's bed. And then on the 2nd day leave your door open so the cat can see that there is more to it's new world and it might want to explore for a bit (you don't have to force it too). It will hopefully begin to know where it's litter tray is by then and hopeful won't shit all over the house.

 

Or don't get a cat until you are with people who actually really want a cat. That being said your roommates will probably want to play with the kitten because who doesn't!

I'm getting it tomorrow and don't work till Tuesday, so I'll have 4 days with it. Also, I have one roommate that's willing to play with it a bit while I'm working so that's a plus.

all will be fine then, just let the cat explore the house when you are out. It will know where to poop as long as it can get to the litter tray.

When bringing a cat into your house it's better to only give them access to one room in the beginning anyway.  Having to adjust to one room is a lot less stressful than an entire house and all the people in it.  If you can, buy cat trees, toys, or things that can hang off door knobs, etc. so the kitten has stimulating items while your gone.  The big thing is to give it actual play time when you're around.  I find even if I can only squeeze in a half hour of play time with my cats it makes a big difference in them (and by play time I mean I can work them up to the point where they are tired and panting).

 

As for it being an indoor only cat, that's really the best thing for a cat.  Better for the health and lifespan of the cat and much better for the environment since cats are such invasive species.

 

As for the litter box, you can put him in after he eats and whenever you notice him wake up.  Plus if he does have an 'accident' if you can move any of it into the box that will help them associate the litter box with their waste (a lot easier if their first accident is a solid obviously).
