It's not that practical for me to get a second cat but I can't help dwelling on the possibility when I see how bored Genie seems for much of the day. As I've posted before she's quite bored of playing with us but still demands it constantly. She's still got a very playful attitude, rolling over, purring, trilling and rabbit kicking gently soon after being petted. She hasn't had any other cat contact at least since she was about 6 months old. Is there any true way of telling whether a cat's personality is suited to a friend. I guess if I got another kitty it would be for her more than me (although I'd be happy to have another).
