Hi, I am new to this forum as I have just recently bought a ginger tabby kitten (called Magrib) and I am seeking for advice and support from the community. It’s only been a few days, but since day 1, I’ve been feeling regretful. The best way to describe how I feel is that I feel like I’ve adopted a child. I knew that cats would require care and attention but they it’s a lot more than I expected and I feel like I don’t know what I let myself in for. It seems like my life will revolve around the cat and I won’t have much time to myself. Let me describe what I have experienced so far. I’m not getting peaceful sleep as Magrib moves around a lot in bed and thinks my moving feet under the duvet is a mouse. They say you can put them in a cage but I think that’s unfair. Nonetheless, he doesn’t seem to sleep at all. Also, I am working from home and Magrib is always calling for attention and sits/sleeps on my lap, but I can’t focus on my work as it might wake him from his sleep. I have bought toys for him to entertain with but he gets bored very quickly. I have an established routine in terms of feeding him and clearing his litter tray and entertaining him but he still doesn’t get sleepy at end of the day and I’m tired and I want to go to bed. I bought the kitten because working from home can be lonely and I thought it would bring new life to the home. Also, they say cats are much more independent than dogs, but I’m starting to feel that I’m giving up a lot of time to attend to its needs that I don’t even have time for myself. I know it’s still early days but I feel like it’s a huge burden already. Not sure what to do?
