Our family has 2 cats (one young and one much older). The young one Mogget (we have had as stray kitten since early August 2013) is a pretty typical playful kitten while the 14.5 year old Bill (whom we have had since he was a kitten...also a stray) is crotchety to say the least; and he has always been this way. And so it is only just now, about 5 months
after introductions that Bill (an indoor outdoor cat) seems to be coming to uneasy terms with sharing our house with the youngster (who is strictly an indoor cat)(but that is another story
). But I am sorry to say that youngster will never be able to "play" with oldster...he has no patience for such antics given his age and disposition.
I am toying with the idea of getting a kitten (as early as possible into the coming summer); one that would/could be a lifetime playmate for Mogget
We love our cats (one a bit more than the other
) BUT it would so great to finally have a (extra) friendly, affectionate, clever, outgoing cat. I know nothing is certain when it comes to pet personalities but I want to do all I can to have the best chance that this new cat has such a disposition.
All else being equal can one expect that a high quality Burmese cattery will much
more likely produce kittens that have the highly desirable characteristics of this breed (as compared to your garden variety non
(Here are Bill and Mogget from the past summer).
Of course I welcome your comments and suggestions.
