Is it important to have a companion for your cat?

My cat is always yowling and making noise at the cats in the next apartment. And, I'm worried I will be reported for his noise. Should I just get a second cat, despite lack of room?

It's possible your cat is simply trying to communicate with the other cats or considers them to be infringing on his territory. This behavior would be made worse by getting him a feline housemate as he would exhibit more territorial behavior to counteract.

How old is your cat? Is it a female? maybe she is in heat?

Some cats like companions and others like to be left alone. It just depends on the cat.

If you can afford another cat, then you can another one for it. Definitely, I believe it would help your first cat be relaxed and mew less at home even when you are not around, as his or new mate would keep it occupied.

Cats are quite sensitive pets, they can easily adapt to any slight change provided you afford them the opportunity to do so and an enabling environment to achieve that also.

I'm not that much of a cat person, I think you should contact Beverly to give you the best advice on what to do. She is basically the best cat person I know so far. Lol.

That would be the right thing to do, just like humans long for companionship so also pets long for one.I think to steer clear of problems from authorities to be, it would be safer and good to get the cat a companion that way the noise would cease and worry about getting into officers net would be avoided.

Well, I guess so, but having more than one cat can sometimes give you a lot of problems like unwanted kittens and a lot of cat litter.

In as much I feel that having more than one might result in the cats procreating, I am of the opinion that this is the best solution to avoid a situation where he/she is now reported as a result of the cat making some form of noise. There is need to keep things working well by getting another cat.

For me, I guess not. It's because cats can be too aggressive and they actually want to be alone. I actually have a cat and he's so sassy he doesn't even let me sleep with him sometimes. However, if it would benefit your cat, then there's no harm in trying to raise a companion for your pet.

I don't think there is a problem with getting another cat that will be a companion to your cat at home as long as you've noticed that it always yaw at the cat that is at the other house. That is an indication that your cat is really looking for a companion that will be there for it when it wants to play.

Well, cats are actually social creature. They are always looking for companion. If grooming your cat, feeding her well and playing with her do not do the trick, then getting a companion would be the next great thing to do. But if you do not want to end with a lot of kittens you should have your cat neutered.
