Thinking of getting my cat a companion
I have a very sweet little 4-year-old female cat. She spent the first 2-3 years of her life with another cat (male, two years older than her). I work two jobs and am gone a lot, so I'm thinking about getting another cat to keep her company. She's very, very sweet-natured and extremely affectionate, but rather shy around others, so I think she'll probably be fearful at first, but hopefully they'll grow to be friends. She has all of her claws, but doesn't use them. Does anyone have any suggestions as to male vs. female, or kitten vs. adult? Thanks!
