I have had some problems with my cat which is 1 1/2 years old. She hisses and growls at my nieces. I think she is jealous because she doesn't have my full attention when they are over. She is always trying to get our attention. We play with her all the time and give her treats but that doesn't seam like it's enough. I was thinking of getting a friend for her. I was thinking it would be best to get a cat about her age as I fear she may hurt a kitten. However, someone had mentioned that I should get a kitten as her mother instinct would come out and take care of the kitten. I was just wondering if anyone had any experiences regarding this. I do not want to get another kitten and upset her but I also do not want her to feel lonely.
