Beautiful Willow has been with me for just over 2 months now and I'm thinking of getting her a new friend. Willow is around 8 months old and very lively. I have a week off work in September and I'm considering going back to the shelter to adopt another cat. Do you think it is too soon? Willow settled in pretty much straight away but I'm out of the house for 10 hours every day and feel like she could do with some company. I'm probably going to go for another queen as I heard they get on quite well. Should I look for an older cat or another young one? Would a cat who seems shy fit in well? Willow is so friendly when she meets new people and even at the vet she doesn't seem phased by other animals, so I think she'll be ok. It's just the potential new addition I'm worried about fitting in which is why I want to do it when I have time off work. Apologies for rambling, I just want a little advice. Oh, and here's a photo of Willow the day after I got her to make up for the long post.
