3. If you live in an apartment, make sure that you are allowed to get a kitten
Depending on where you live, you may not even be allowed to have a kitten. Apartments that do allow cats typically require you to sign a pet agreement. For example, some pet agreements may state that you will need to pay a pet deposit, keep the cat inside, or have any carpeted surfaces professionally steam cleaned. You may also be able to have one or two cats.
