When to adopt?
For the past three years our house has been a two cat home, but this last week we had to say goodbye to our sweet Boober-kitty. Although he doesn't seem completely distraught, I have noticed in the days since that our other cat, Red, has been looking and calling for him sometimes, and he seems to want to spend more time curled up with me. My two boys used to spend a lot of their time together, play fighting, grooming one another, or curled up sleeping together.
I will be back to work and taking classes part time starting in September, and I am worried that Red will be lonely, especially since we adopted the boys together and he hasn't ever been an only kitty. Do you have any advice on when it's the right time to bring another kitty into our home? I'm not sure if it's too soon or not. I'm still really missing my baby, but I also know that I have lots of love to give. And I did visit the shelter and meet a very sweet, mellow two year old girl in need of a home this weekend, but haven't decided if it's the right choice to make yet.
