Is having two cats better than one?

Luke, 1 month ago

I bought the most amazing kitten two months ago, she's beautiful. I'm very lucky, she's got the most amazing personality, the perfect balance between playfulness and curiosity. I fear she's getting bored though as she's craving attention whenever I'm around.

A few people have told me that having two cats is better than one as they keep each other company/occupied throughout the day. I've also been told it keeps them healthier throughout their lives.

What do you think? Is two cats better than one?
