my cat has been with his sister for his whole life, and now he’s an only cat : ( he’s generally friendly, too timid for fights but occasionally would hit his sister with a paw. never with claws out though. the cat next door and he used to have an armed neutrality before that cat died too. but he’s a highly-strung, nervous sweetie who loves laps and food.
my question to anyone who knows about such things is: should we get him a little friend? maybe a kitten to minimise feelings of competitiveness. a female so he doesn’t feel his alpha maleness is being threatened? he’s never been an only cat in his life before, he’s always been with his sister :(
can anyone give advice?
