So I got a new kitten recently, and everything was fine (hubby cleans the litterbox and everything) We got him from his brother who's cat just had kittens.
We decided to babysit one other kitten ( our kittens sister) for the weekend,and now hubby wants to keep the other one, but i say NO WAY! I am having our first baby in October, and I cant take care of TWO cats too! One cat i can handle, but two?? He wants to keep her because his brothers living invironment is pretty bad and he would like to keep them together... Am i wrong in saying no? I offered to find her a good home! ( She is a BEAUTIFUL calico on top and white on bottom, she would go in a second!) I feel really bad....

Honestly, 2 cats really are not any harder to take care of than one cat- I had one cat for years, than I got a second one, and other than the fact that I got twice the lovin and twice the meows and twice the amount of my bed taken up there really wasn't any change. the litter box still had to be cleaned every other day, and they used a self water/feeder. most cats don't want or ask for a lot of attention, but are often more affectionate to babies than dogs are.
I would just say keep em together, cats need play mates especally since you have a new baby coming and wont be able to provide all the love and attention you might have been able to give had there been no baby!

No its not a bad thing that you said no. Im trying to get rid of my cat now but hes a year old. But if you were to keep it the good things about cats is they are usually good by themselves and if you have 2 they will play together so it wont take as much of your time. But also keep in mind that you have to be careful with cats because they like to cuddle up around babies and can smother them without knowing it.
