The more the merrier, sometimes!
A lot depends on the primary cat. I have three cats. They all like each other now. Miley and Graemer are brother and sister, so they are in love. Gabe now gets along with both cats and I would say that they keep each other busy, if nothing else. I often find them curled up together. So, yes, do find your furry friend a furry friend.
Introducing new cat to current cat
I have a 17 yr old pretty much blind Siamese who has been my only cat since 6 wks old. My "neighbor" (I use that term loosely, what a scumbag he is) had to move and couldn't (or wouldn't ) take his beautiful TINY 3 yr old Tortie with him, so I rescued her. I don't want to give her up, and currently have them separated in different parts of the house. He had NEVER taken her to the vet! So I took her yesterday to get rid of the fleas! and get all the shots she never had, ever. Of course the jerk didn't bother to spay her either, so by month's end that will happen too. She is a wonderful tempered girl, but my old Siamese is pretty feisty still, and I can see the issues being more on his end than on hers. She lived with both dogs and cats, so I think she would be the easier one here. I have never had to introduce old to new cat ever before, so if anyone can help me out, please do so. Thanks, Barbara
Introducing old cat to new one
Thank you. I have wedged the door between them open an inch; I hope it will help them get each other's scent. I am trying to do some sort of slow introduction; I just pray it all works out, since my old guy is my love, but I would love to be able to keep this little one also, since she has come from a horrible house, and all I want to do is to give her a good new home so that she can find some love with me.
