From most everything I’ve read, two kittens are better than one, if you can handle two.
When we collected Enzo I was adamant that I wanted one cat, just one. Then we found out about his condition, and wanted to get him another kitten who could be with him 24/7 – for play, comfort and companionship.
The first person I spoke with about this was our vet surgery, firstly to make sure they though a second kitten would be okay for Enzo, and secondly because they actually had kittens from a pregnant stray that was brought in.
The second place I contacted was Cats Protection (a UK cat charity), and asked for any advice they could offer. I apologised and said I didn’t know if they offered advice, but I’d sure appreciate it!! I explained about Enzo’s health, the uncertainty about neutering him, and asked their opinion.
Their response was a huge relief 🙂
Keep your cat as happy as possible and a friend may be good for him,as to his neutering as he is not old enough anyway yet I would play it by ear,he may gain strength as he gets better and his heart may calm down and then he could be neutered.Male neutering is quick and he would only need to be under a short while.good luck just enjoy him and find him a friend boy may be better.
Which is good as the kitten we are most interested in is a boy! 🙂
Tomorrow we are off to look at Enzo’s potential brother. He is utterly adorable, and is currently 7.5 weeks old; we’d bring him home around 10 weeks old, and his name will most likely be Pecan!
And, because I am a HUGE sadd0 (at least I am aware of it!), I bought the bro’s matching collars and matching-ish food bowls…the grey is for Enzo as he is dark grey, and the blue and white is for Pecan as, if we choose this particular kitten, he is mainly white!
The collars will only be used for vet visits or time outside (for the tags), but they’re cute nonetheless!
And here’s Enzo playing with a new toy we bought today (only £1.99!) and his beloved tunnel 😉
Possibly the best pet toy I’ve ever bought, he LOVES this!
