I am writing from Massachusetts. My husband and I have adopted our female cat just over a year ago when she was 8 - 10 weeks old. She was a trapped feral calico. Kalico has been our "only" cat for the year with the exception of a number of periods when we would cat-sit our daughter's two cats, Milo and Minka. A few days ago, we began a "trial" with a second cat, a male who came named Han Solo (a rescue cat that likely had a previous owner as he was neutered but not tipped).
I am here to learn from you all. I will be seeking advice from those of you more experienced, but that should be for another thread.
