Will a Companion Cat Help with the Early Morning Wake-Ups?
We've been thinking about a second cat for a while. We're interested in a young cat, but not a kitten. We're wondering how our 1+ year old cat, which we've had for 3.5 months, might feel about another cat in her home. We adopted her from the shelter after she came in with her littermates, so know that she's lived with other cats, but she has truly taken over the house.
She starts her wakeup routine around 4:30, but with the full moon this week, it's been earlier. She'll walk over my husband, settle down on his pillow, groom herself and his bald spot, and continue to bother him until he gets up and feeds her. This morning, he got up at 4 to feed her, but then she continued her routine even after she ate. (I sleep through all of this, by the way.)
My husband thinks that a companion will stop this routine. I've warned him that he might have TWO cats going through their paces.
Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks in advance.
