"Should I get a cat?" - Psychologies magazine agony aunt, Mary Fenwick, answers this question from a reader:

"I live alone in a studio flat and I am thinking about getting a cat. I would love the companionship, I am a bit worried about the commitment – the idea of taking on a living thing that will live for 15 years until I am in my 40s just seems pretty major. Also I rent and while my landlady now is OK about me having a cat, another landlord may not be, and that worries me. I know the sensible thing would be not to do it, but part of me really wants to."
