    Hi Guys

    I was wondering about whether it’s a good idea to introduce a second cat.

    We have our gorgeous Ash who is a mix of clever, affectionate, playful, loving and very clean as well as a bitey/ scratchy if cats outside torment him.

    He’s 3 and a half and we’ve had him for 9 months. He is totally settled, healthy and happy but he’s an alpha male who is up for a fight. However he’s quite a small cat.

    I remember our Vet saying a ‘girlfriend’ might help his more aggressive side?

    Would it be a good idea for him to have a buddy? What’s the best way to do it? I would love to have two cats but only if they’re both happy and feel safe

    Has he been neutered?
