Hello- bear with me here, am very new to cat ownership, if I say something stupid- please do not crucify me!!! We had a new cat, Evie back in March. A beautiful although slightly troubled Tortie. I saw her being advertised on a second hand website and although never having had a cat before we went for it!! She is not very affectionate and is probably not the easiest first cat She runs hot and cold, prefers to be outside than to be near humans and looks like she will be sick when we try to touch her Perhaps a typical cat??!!!! We talk to her lots, give affection on her terms and feed her little and often to form a 'food bond' and she seems to be coming round although I will never expect to cuddle up with me (she did a few times when we first had her, but she knows she has 'got us' now!!) but she seems quite happy- anyway I digress.... In May, we decided that we would like another cat. We love Evie so much, even though she is aloof and arsey she is so special to us and a complete cat version of me!! So we did our research and decided to get a kitten and introduce slowly. We did this and after a few hairy moments which I think always happen when introducing cats, they are now absolute buddies and are outside playing and washing eachother as I speak. Little Meg is an absolute treasure and has brought Evie right out of her shell. Evie mothers her like mad and wraps her arms round Meg and licks her to sleep. It just makes me melt to see them so happy together. I understand it can go one of 2 ways but my 2 girls really do get on very well. We worked hard and read a lot of books to ensure such an outcome and it paid off. Now, I may be mad having only been a cat owner for...oooh...4 months?? But we love our cats so much and take so much time with them to make sure they are happy that we are considering another one later on in the year (not just yet as Meg is still only 13 weeks), we realise the risks when introducing cats but we feel like absolute veterans in this area now and honestly feel that we can do it (with the help of a massive cage on wheels!! don't ask...). However upon discussion, my Husband would like to have a pedigree BSH BUT we are concerned about introducing a pedigree to 2 moggies. This sounds daft....but should we expect exactly the same as introducing 2 moggies? That does sound mad, doesn't it?? Would it somehow be different? I'm expecting a pedigree temprement to be different- calmer perhaps?? Dunno- need some experienced voices!! Has anyone else introduced a pedigree to a pair of scoundrel moggies?? Is it even the done thing??!!! We live in a quiet cul-de-sac and our girls go out in the garden and play and would fully expect the new cat to do the same- is there some sort of etiquette about letting pedigree cats out? My sister says that she knows a few people with pedigree cats and they stay indoors and I may struggle to get a breeder to sell me a cat that I am willing to let out. Any tips or own experiences welcome- sorry if the questions are utter twaddle!!!!
