So: I have a cat currently, let's call him T, who is delightful and handsome and gifted and ... (digressing). He has been with me for over 5 years, and largely has the run of the apartment.
I am wanting to bring another animal into the home, and am totally unsure about how to do this without causing turmoil!
My current (handsome, gifted) cat has really never met other animals, other than the squirrels and birds he obsesses about through the window...
I would love to bring in a smaller animal, but I am fairly concerned and convinced that T would not see it as a new sibling, but as a new toy to be hunted: "Wow, Mom, a rabbit??? Gee thanks! *swat swat swat pounce*"
I adore (ADORE) T, and thought perhaps another cat would be a great idea...
So, the point of the post:
How do I go about introducing another cat into the home without the two of them murdering each other? Would it be smarter to get a boy or a girl cat? Younger than T or older?
Thanks in advance, wise people!
