You will be made to get rid of the cat.
There are actually two dorms cats here at UPS. They were cats that people tried to keep in the dorms, got caught, and were basically forced to put them on the street,
So now these two cats just live outside the dorms and people feed them.
Another to mention is space. You are in a suite, so it will be a bit better....but cats like to have a little room to move around.
Also, in small spaces their shit can stink pretty bad.
Again, I am all for having cats. I am a senior this year and have had my cats for....1.5 years. They are two of the coolest cats ever, so it really has been worth it.
But with cats comes tons of shit too. As I said, food and litter. One of my cats now needs special food which is more expensive. That same cat has had to go to the vet for emergencies twice now, which has cost me close to $2000. Also, I try to keep my cats inside (life span of a indoor cat is about 7x that I believe of an outdoor) particularly because I live about 1/2 block from one of the main streets in Tacoma. So if they get out, which will happen, trust me, you have to go searching and shit. Plus then they could get fleas, etc.
Not trying to scare people away from pets, but do be well aware of what it takes to keep a pet.
One of my cats now I essentially just took from an ex roommate of mine because he was so bad at taking care of him. And this cat, dante, and my cat, charlie murphy, were best friends. So when we each moved into difference places, I took him because this kid could hardly afford to feed him, was horrible at replacing his cat litter, etc. Also, it would have been too sad to split up the two cats as they are ridiclously gay for each other.
I wouldn't change anything about getting them, even with all the money spent. My cats all fucking awesome and provide many hours of amusement. But just be aware, it is not like getting a fish or something. Also, when you are trying to find another place later, having a pet can seriously make it hard to find a rental. Some people just don't like pets....
And since we are talking about them, and they are so awesome....here are my cats:
Dante likes beer boxes
and will fuck you up
and charlie murphy is V
and is an alcoholic
