I'm a cat person. I just love cats. I want to adopt all kittens I see! :D
I live in a congested part of Nepal's capital city. I live with my small family in a small house. All of us are usually busy at office/college during work time (10am to 4pm).
I adopted a cat a few years ago. We couldn't control him from roaming outside the house (for example, he would pop out the door suddenly when we opened it). After few hours, we would hear his meows and as soon as we opened the door, he would rush back in (probably to eat). When we returned home after work, he would meow so desperately (as if he was relieved to see us). But one day, he went out and never returned. :(
I recently got a call from a friend that a tiny kitten has come at his place and was asking me if I wanted to adopt it. I definitely do want. But I definitely don't want another cat to leave us like that. Does adopting 2 or more cats help prevent it? (as we can't manage a pet-sitter here) Or does neutering the cat reduces it's eagerness to go out often?
How should I adopt cats? How do working people adopt cats? Or should I forget that cats exist? :/
