two kitties!? (and luck to Harpsie)
- View SourceThanks, Helen. I'm sorry to hear that Harpsie is having troubles and
I hope things take a turn for the better.
Wow, I hadn't thought of TWO kittens! It was enough trying to get my
partner Tina to agree to getting ONE! I'll propose the idea tonight,
however, and see what happens. I don't really know if Katarina will
feel better about that. . . she may feel outnumbered! We went to Bide-
A-Wee yesterday but didn't fall in love with any kitties - we're
planning to go to a different location on Friday afternoon. We're
both still quite depressed but I'm confident that the new little one
will cheer us up considerably.

- View SourceKrista,
I found that with one kitten, they tend to latch onto one adult. Or in the
case of Kali, terrorize each adult. :)
The only time we had more than one was when we got The Kids, who were
pretty feral. They eventually formed relationships with either themselves
or another cat in the house, but didn't seem to latch on as bad as I've
I would have gotten two last year after Kearra died but that would have put
us back to 7 which is an awful lot.
I'd highly suggest it, they really keep themselves occupied. At least
they'll have the same energy level as each other. <G>
Good to see you're looking around - don't worry, that special one will
reach out to you.
