I want a cat. All my friends tell me they get on the counters,bed,furniture and hair will be everywhere so don't get one. What should I do

You can just go ahead and have a cat provided you will give it some playing objects to keep it busy during its play time. Cats normally make great companions, particularly for people who like independence in their pets.

Learn everything you can about cats. Read, read, read. Then you'll know what to do.

Yes, cats do all of those things and it really, really hard to train them not to (well except the hair part. You can't keep them from shedding unless you get a hairless, which is a whole other concern). If you think those are bad trait for a pet, then don't get a cat.

If you think you can handle that stuff, get a cat.

If you want one, get one. Don't worry about what your friends say as long as you don't mind cat eccentricities. Yes, they do walk across and sleep on everything; that's what cats do. Cats are pretty clean animals, though (after all, they're always washing themselves) and don't actually shed too much if they have short hair. I have three cats. Maybe I don't notice the shedding as much since I have kids, so I'm vacuuming every day or every other day, anyway. I don't have the smell or mess of a litter box because they do their business outside. I trained my first cat to use the toilet as well. I love cats because they're cute, cuddly and they're independent yet also enjoy snuggling in your lap. They're very nice companions. :)

You can train them not to get on counters, provide them with other climbing posts and window ledges, every time they try jumping on counter carry over to their approved spots. Cats pretty smart, they learn. Hair? Weel depends; my cats don't shed too much( shorthair tabby-domestic mixes) and I brush them a lot so no biggie. Cats are cool animals even if my newest Dog thinks they're just fun chase toys:-).

Maybe you should try a bird, then you'd only be vacuuming up seeds it spit out.
