We lost our 2 year old male back in January to heart failure. His sibling Luna misses him dearly and I can often hear her crying in the night (we cant let her into our room as she plays up and we get no sleep) When she goes out she will often return several times in close succession and I'm not sure if it's to look for him or to check we are still here. I have been considering getting a kitten for Luna. She is generally not keen on other cats but I feel she needs a friend like her sibling for company and to play with- I know cats are supposed to be solitary but they were inseperable. However I don't want to risk upsetting her more. Kittens generally come in pairs I find as its hard to separate them when they are so small. So we are thinking about 2 males. My understanding is a kitten is generally more tolerated than an adult cat and she seems to prefer males to females. Ive been reading up on here and am a bit freaked out about all the stories of kittens not getting on with older cats and now I'm unsure if it would be the right thing to do. Any advice?
