Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I had a cat when I was much younger and I loved it. It died sadly, and my sister immediately implored my mother for a dog, so we've had nothing but dogs since.
But now that I am out on my own, and my roommate who is allergic to cats is moving out in a month, I want to get my own!
I haven't done an incredible amount of research, though I know I likely want to start with a kitten, attempt to train it to use the toilet, and have one that doesn't shed quite so much hair if possible. I also apparently don't want to declaw it, do want to neuter/spade it, and potentially am willing to get two kittens so they have a playmate/friend when I'm not home.
I hear animal shelters are generally a good place, avoiding petco like the plague.
So how much am I looking at spending for this? How much will a shelter charge for shots and everything? What all do I need to buy? Will cat food be ridiculously expensive or something? Any good resources to read up on?
