Questions about possible second cat.
My wife started asking for a kitten awhile ago, and yesterday I finally found some local. So, I surprised her and took her and we picked one out.
It cried on the way home, but once we were home it took all of 2 minutes until it was playing and purring (yay!) Well, here is my dilemma.
We both work, and the little girl's cry in the morning when we are leaving breaks my heart. Luckily, my wife has an easy schedule this week, but starting next Monday that will not be the case.
Would you recommend getting another for company? We were told she is about 8 weeks old. And here is a little more story if we do decide to get another.
I say "about" because the owner had 4 females (that we know of!) and all got pregnant at the same time (they believe from the same dad). They had all of the kittens together, so it was hard to tell which belonged to which litter, but from my opinion they were all very close in age, and all are litter trained.
Should I try to specifically find one from the same litter?
Or because they all "know" each other, or are around the same age would that not matter?
What about gender pairings? I have heard two females is a no-no.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
