Hi guys. My dog recently left the Earth over 2 weeks ago and my little sister and my mother have been scratching for Kittens even before my Dog's death. It's been really lonely without Alfie with us, after having him for almost 4 years, and they keep going on about it. My mother has owned over 14 dogs in her whole 49 years, and my little sister has only been alive for 3 of them. They have never owned kittens or cats before, but like them very much. I personally am not a big fan of cats as I think I'm allergic to them, but I haven't been around many to know that for sure.
Now I've been changing my mind sort of about getting these 2 kittens, even though it'd take me some time to warm up to them but I'm not sure if I should get 2 males like my family want or just the one to see how we go. They think they know what it takes to raise and train 2 little kitties, but I just think they're getting a bit ahead of themselves. Am I being selfish by only getting 1 kitten, or not kittens at all? We all want the kittens but I don't know if getting 2 is the right thing for right now.
What do you guys think? Thanks. I'm 18, my little sister is 11 in a month and my Mother is 49.

Well, they come into season as early as 4 months old
so the males and females are all the same way you can
get them neutered and spayed at 4 months old too the
thing is 2 males can who are brothers can live together
vise versa 2 females who are sisters can live together
it would be great idea having a sister and brother together
unless they are both fixed also male cats can want get outside
when they smell a female cat in heat so there is lot things you
got to consider and cats can be messy with litter boxes too.1

Cats are pretty self explainatory and with two of them, they're more likely to keep one another company and diminish kitty favoritism. They're basically like dogs really. Create rules, keep boundaries, and feed twice a day.
Of course I sit here telling you all this as I watch one of the cats manipulate my grandma XD0
