Bringing in a new kitty
Mr. Funyun passed away in the Spring of FIV related issues and I am finally ready to start looking for a new kitty.
My current cat is a female spayed cat who is about 6. She took months to get used to Funyun in the first place, hiding in the bedroom and sulking. She eventually got used to him but never showed any affection like playing or grooming. I didn't think that she missed him and enjoyed being an only cat but she has become a bit crazier, nosier and friendlier since he died.
She lets herself be petted occasionally, likes to play rough, and will sit next to you but not on you sometimes, but mostly she's under the bed or in the other room! She hates other cats that are outside and even went through my window screen after one last summer! So I really miss funyun's constant "I'm here, pet me, purr let me sit in your lap and be in your face"
My questions are as follows!!
Would current kitty be better with a male or female cat? A baby or an adult? A kitty that would try and play with her or one that would ignore her?
