I want another cat

I think almost everyone on this forum will say "No duh!" when I say I want another cat.

I'm hopefully starting a job the week after next - so I'll be working... thank goodness. So wish me luck - I'm going to talk to the manager bright and early tomorrow. So I will have pleanty of money to buy another baby boy.

Why do I want one now? I just want a playmate for Halifax - not to mention I wanted another cat - but I wanted him and Halifax to bond before he is too my older - and gets used to being "the only cat". I'm glad we waited - because it gave us time to get used to him - take care of his needs - multiple vet visits - shots - worming - neautering and everything else. But right now - I want to get another cat for Hali to play with.

I also want to get another right now because I am still at home - and if an emergency pops up - I can take care of it easy. Also - it would be nice to potty train him at this house (the one we are leaving and never comming back to again) rather than a perminent house where my father would spaz if the cat rubbed his butt on the floor.

All around - I just want to have another kitty. They are so sweet - I would love it if Halifax could have someone to play with him - since he is always stuck in my little room all day unless I am home to watch over him - and keep him away from Tigger.

I'm going to start saving soon - for his adoption fee - neautering - shots and everything else. I guess I need to ask my parents if I can get another... yippy. Also - he'll have to be born... or appear at the local shelter... wish me luck!

I'm looking for a male seal point himmie - if you see any around - let me know. And yes - I'll give a look at petfinder.

I got number 4 in March and seen a kitten at the animal shelter that I am dying to get, but the boyf says no (being that it was his choice to get the first 3 cats).

I found our cats get along better in pairs as they have someone to play with - especially when we are out working all day - means they play instead of just sleeping and we can sleep at night now!

I so want one too. Same reasons as you. I think it'd be cool for Taby to have a playmate around, and even if he doesn't care, I just want another one! Don't know if I'll have the guts to ask my dad. I think asking for another one would be pushing it.

ooh..
i'd deliberated over a second cat for months, and now that I have another one, I don't know why i hesitated! Polo is so much happier with Lorren around, though he still comes to sleep on my lap always everyone thought i was crazy, but two cats actually eases the attention you have to give to one. not that u don't have to look after them, but at least when i'm away for the whole day, i know they have each other.
GO FOR TWO!! (or more)

I have also been thinking recently that I would love to get a second cat... However, Dusty has never had another animal in his house all of his 4 years and I'm not sure how he would take to it. If only I knew he would take to a new kitten the way Tierney took to Teagan!

I'd love to have a second cat...but given Assumpta's reaction to just the smell of another cat, it just doesn't seem like it's in the cards. It's a little depressing, because there is an unwell very-senior kitty at the shelter that's just literally dying of sadness, and for some reason she's developed a liking for me (the other day, she actually climbed up the side of her cage to get my attention...this from a cat who spends most of her time staring into the corner of her cage with her back to the world). The shelter director asked me if I could possibly take her in, so I brought her smell home on a towel and Assumpta tried to shred the towel

But yeah, I totally get wanting another cat...I will probably have a multi-cat household after Assumpta, but she was the cat who came along and needed help back when I wasn't even looking for a cat, so she will just be the queen of the house for as long as she lives...

Mmm-mmm. I really don't know about getting a second cat. I would love it though; when I got Madam my idea was getting another later on. By now Madam is spoiled rotten (I think) or rather she was a very shy cat when I picked her up from the shelter and now is confident that she owns us and the house. She's impervious to other cats though, except for a neighbors kitten that tries to play when she's resting on the porch, but that's natural, he's a pesky bundle of energy to a 5 yr old lady So I might get another one I think..I hope ..
