    I have a cat, kind of handed off to me by an ex-housemate, and she's a lovely little thing and has become very attached to me, follows me around everywhere. I like having her around but I'm aware that really I shouldn't have her (nor should the previous owner, hence why I ended up with her!) because it does mean I basically can't ever leave home for more than a day or so without finding someone to feed her (not easy) and look after her. If I wanted to go on holiday then I'd completely stuck.

    Do any young people here, i.e. without a permanent home and a fixed child-burdened lifestyle, keep a cat or dog and manage it?

    I'm thinking I should get rid of her but it seems like a shame
