1. Have you considered a time-share option?

 

Cat for 2 weeks every year?

2. There are pros and cons to the situation.

You could fall in love with the cat and suffer severe separation issues.

15. What are you, nuts? PAY to play with kittens?

Call your local no-kill and ask if they need any cat socialization volunteers. If (when?) they say yes, you get to play with kittens for free.

16. I saw two humane society kittens today.

I so want to take them home. Then I struggle all night wondering if they would be happy here. Or are they better off somewhere else. I actually find it stressful on the whole. Not relaxing at all to be constantly thinking can I make the commitment to a kitten. So I don‘t know why I always stop in t that store. Except that I love kitties.

7. Try for a 'next door' cat if you can.

We have two.
They drop in, hang out a while, sleep, do their cat thing, then go home.
We don't have to bother with cat food, kitty litter, vet bills, etc.

11. Selling cats door-to-door doesn't work.

Be ambitious they said. You can always sell cats they said. Don't take no for an answer. Just throw some in a bag and get your foot in the door. It was a nightmare.

14. No, but neither is buying

All you have to do is provide them with better food than their current owners.
