If you have a single cat at home, you might not always be around to keep the cat amused, which can result in your cat feeling lonely. The answer might be to get a second cat so you can double your problems while increasing your expenses at the same time.

Of course, you need to make sure your cat wants another cat. Some cats might see a second cat as a rival and fight. One sign that your cat might want a companion lies in your cat’s behavior.
