My girlfriend and I are waiting for 2 kittens to reach the 12 week mark so we can bring them home (since they are siblings they should get along, right?). We have both had cats as children and love them, so we finally decided to adopt our own.
While we're both going to be spending time playing with them, in the case we're both out of the appartment for anything between a few hours to maybe a day (they will of course have food and water!), will they keep each other stimulated or will they get bored easily?
One of the primary motivations for getting 2 is that they will keep each other company so they will refrain from destructive behavior in case we might not be around, is this true or just speculation?
So to boil it down to a concrete question: will getting 2 cats reduce boredom and keep them stimulated in case we're not around to play with them?
I'm working from home so I'll be around a lot, but a few times a year I'm out of the country for a few weeks for work reasons. Our parents have already told us they will look after the cats in case we're both gone for longer periods of time.
