hi,we rehomed two bonded cats 4 1/2 years ago and sadly lost one of our boys 8 weeks ago. The boy who’s left wasn’t a lap cat when we got him and only wanted attention now and again, over the years he’s mellowed and loves attention and started to sit on knees occasionally! Since he lost his mate he’s started regularly sitting on laps and meowing to get up (and for food) he was a silent cat before as fin did all the meowing for them both! I would like another cat but other family members are debating this saying he might go back to being a loner cat again? We’ve only ever had these two cats so I’m not sure what to do for the best ?? Anyone had a similar situation please?
