Is my cat lonely, should I get another cat?
I have a 9 month old very sweet male seal point siamese. I feel badly that I am gone so many hours at work each day. Would it be better to get another kitten for him for company or am I overthinking it?

Cats don't need the company of other cats as they are naturally animals who live alone and are not pack animals like dogs.
some cats who have been brought up with another cat from when they are very small will happily live with another cat on most occasions but generally if they are not used to another cat being around then there are no guarantees that they will get on at all.
If you cat is an inside cat and you are gone all day then it is important that you make their home environment as stimulating for them as possible. i have a page here on the site which you may find helpful
