Hello, my name is Katy, I´m from Madrid, and I have a Persian cat. He spends most of the time home alone; between my full-time job and taking care of my daughter, unfortunately, we are hardly ever home on weekdays. I was considering adopting a female kitten to keep him company. Do you think it´s a good idea? What do you think I should do?
Hi Katy, the advantage of having two cats is that they will play together and challenge each other. If you are away from home a lot, they will keep each other company and even sleep together. There can also be downfalls to this decision, since cats are independent and solitary and very territorial they are used to routines and introducing a new pet in the house can be stressing. I recommend you make the encounter slow and steady, so they both have time to adjust and accept each other. Good luck!
