So for my little bro's birthday my parents are considering getting my family a cat. My parents will heavily weigh my opinion when making the final decision and I have to say I am torn. When I was young I had a cat, a stray we took in, and being younger I had more time to spend with it, and really liked having a pet. Now it seems like every weekend I am skiing or at a regatta/game and every weekday is consumed with school and summer jobs. Is the reward of having a cat worth the responsibilities/cost? Have any of you gotten a pet but found you have had problems spending enough time with it?
The DL: Should OP get a cat?
