I have two. They’re super low maintenance. Also cats instinctively know to use the litter box. As long as you keep it clean and find a box/litter they like you’ll be fine. I would be more concerned with travel though. Is there someone that could check in regularly while you’re gone? Or are you willing to pay someone to come check in on the cat and scoop litter daily? That still might be stressful for the cat though because a lot of cats get stressed around people that they don’t live with.

Good luck potty training a cat.

I have 2. They keep each other company during the week when I had to travel. I had them for years before I started traveling. They miss people because I got dog cats. They even learn tricks like sit, high five, and fetch. I have a camera to see and talk to them too. They do better when I get a car sitter to come by for a bit every day but they still prefer me. Some cats are totally fine being more independent. Some even learn to use the toilet. Check out YouTube lol.

Also, I have an automated feeder and robot litter box. A water fountain with a reservoir keeps the water fresh.

Cats are THE BEST. My husband’s worst quality is being allergic. Not sure how itd work if you live alone and travel m-f though. They are low maint but youd need to hire someone to give them some love and food and a clean box etc.
