Should I get another cat?
Hello cat lovers,
So I have a cute little half-Siamese cat named Mimi (male... I know, it's weird!). I work all day and am in grad school some nights, and I live in a high-rise. So obviously, Mimi doesn't play outside and seems pretty lonely. He cries all the time, constantly brings me his toys to play with (cute!), and stalks me as if I were another cat. I grew up in a house that usually had at least three Siamese or Birmans or Tonks or whatever, so I've never really dealt with a single cat before. I'm thinking of adopting a kitten to keep Mimi company all day...
I could easily do so, but I'm a little worried about Mimi. He's very aggressive, and he's quite a biter. I'm afraid if I get a kitten, Mimi would hurt it or be really mad. Mimi's neutered, and a new kitten would definitely be altered before I got it. If you think I should get a new kitten, should I get a three-month old? An older, bigger kitten? A male or a female? Should I try to look for a very laid-back kitten, or another dominating one? Mimi's littermate, Peaches, lives with my parents and gets along quite well with a very laid-back Birman.
I just want Mimi to be as content as possible, and it doesn't seem like he is now. Also, I'm probably (fingers crossed) starting medical school in August, in which case I'll be home even less. Any advice would be totally appreciated!!
