๐Ÿ™   If only you lived nearby!  Does your vet have cats? Mine has office pets. Maybe your cat could socialize there? Or maybe they have a recommendation?

Yes, ask your local vet if they know of anything…

Would your landlords definitely notice if there was a 2nd cat?

i have two cats and they play with each other but I feel bad for my one male cat, Slate (about 3 years old) because he is incredily energetic and I would love to get another kitten for him to play with (because he would love something rambunctious)!  We can’t for the same reasons as you, as we are maxed out at two pets. 

I would recommend a lot of playing with him (like those “teaser” sticks with interchangeable ends like feathers, etc (we keep ours out of reach when not playing for safety). 

The other thing Slate likes to do is go outside (but he is an indoor kitty).  We have a harness and leash for him (and he is micro-chipped) so we take him outside occasionally.  Maybe that will relieve some of the boredom? Slate also howls and meows at the apt. door when my fiance is gone (!?)

I can definitely relate though, I was promised two more cats if I agree to move to a certain location with Fiance so I am definitely considering it! 

Also, any chance you guys are getting a different place anytime in the next year or did you just move into this one?

@KatyElle: When I was in college, we successfully hid cats from our landlord for three years. If they already know you have one, I think you should just get another one. If you keep things clean and tidy, it won’t even matter. I know it’s not the most honest thing in the world, but… is it really going to hurt anything?

I think you should get a buddy for your kitty-if you can.  Your cat will adjust though and you can always up the play and toys. I don’t think cat playdates are viable option. lol

Maybe if you offer the landlady an extra pet deposit (enough to make it worth her while) she would be willing to let accommodate you. Can’t hurt to ask. Hope you get your wish:)

@KatyElle: Ahh I am going through the same thing with our dog. We adopted her in February and we are in LOVE with her. She brings so much joy to us. But monday-friday when we leave for work, she sits in the big picture window, with her tail down, looking so sad ๐Ÿ™ And when we get home, 8 hours later, she is still sitting there. it BREAKS my heart that she has to be alone all day.

I want so badly to get another dog for her to play with during the day. She had friends at the foster home, and I think she needs a brother or sister. Unfortunetly, we just arent ready right now. We dont have the time or finances for a second one.

But I do secretly checking petfiner.com everyday ๐Ÿ™‚
