Should I get a cat?

Should I get a cat? I am kind of lonely and have considered pet ownership many times. I've grown up with dogs (and cats in my elementary school years.) I recently went through a breakup where my ex took his dog with him, obviously. I don't necessarily miss that dog, but I miss having an animal friend around.

Pros:
-I have plenty of room for a cat.
-I am financially secure.
-I have plenty of friends/potential caregivers if I go away for the weekend.
-I have a vet in the area I can trust.

Cons:
-I have not ever owned a cat on my own.
-I work. The cat would be alone for 8 hours a day 5x a week.
-I live in a city and the cat wouldn't be able to go outside. (It would have to exist in 1200 sq. feet.)

I don't require a kitten- an adult cat would be ideal. However, someone told me that I should get 2 bonded cats if they would be alone for points in the day. Ideas?
