My boyfriend agreed to get us either a Yorkie or a Persian cat, but the thing is that it would live at his house since I live in a dorm. We both have classes, and whichever animal we get it's going to be alone for about 4-5 hours every day. I've wanted a dog since I was small but my parents hate animals so that's not an option. I'd like to know which pet you guys think we should get, and if a cat's going to be less work and able to be fine on its own for a couple of hours a day. TIA!
