You could get a foster car from the animal welfare league to try before you buy

That depends. Make sure you're happy to do the work, the cleaning up after them, the cost (which can be huge when they need medical treatment). I loved my cat but she was a lot of work. She was worth it, I do miss her being around, but I'll never get another pet of any kind.

Also, make sure you have a plan for care when you go away. Asking friends to drop by & feed it/clean out it's litter tray isn't a plan. Most people hate doing it. Plus cats need company.

Don’t do it. Cats are cu**s. After ours dies we aren’t getting another pet ever.

They are Satan’s minions

 So are kids

If you do get a cat, don't buy one. Rescue or adopt one
