Getting a 2nd cat to Keep my Cat Company? Not Sure..
I just moved out of my parents' house where there were 2 cats: my 3 year old boy, Chase and a five year old girl, Dusty (my mom's cat).
I found Chase outside when he was about six weeks old and kept him. Chase and Dusty pretty much just chased each other around the house (Chase would always want to "play attack" Dusty - they didn't really "bond.") Chase is high energy (at times) and Dusty is more chill. I think they liked having each other around but I don't know if I'd call them friends.
Anyways, my mom kept Dusty and I moved out with Chase. Now, I feel bad leaving him alone while my boyfriend and I go to work. He is used to having Dusty around, as well as my mom because she stays at home.
SO, what I'm getting at is..do you think it would be a good idea to get another cat? I feel like a new cat (kitten?) would keep him company but I'm worried that they could hate each other or not really get along , just put up with each other- like Chase and Dusty did.
Any advice? I just don't know what to do; I want Chase to be happy! Thank you!
