OK, here's the long, convoluted dilemma. 18 months ago we adopted two cats from the CPL. Rosie was 18 months old, and Jack was 5 months. They had both had difficult backgrounds (Rosie was a stray with a litter of kittens living behind an undertaker's, Jack had been taken from a drug addict who fed him amphetamines) but there was no long term damage done. Jack was at home straight away, VERY friendly, marching about, claiming every chair and bed in the place for himself. Rosie took longer to settle, and was very shy, but is now a very contented companion for me during the day, sitting on my lap, chasing flies in the garden, etc. They don't get on well together, mainly because Jack just wants to play and Rosie just wants to be left alone. He chases her occasionally, they have had a few (not serious) fights, she growls at him when she thinks he's in a pouncing mood, etc. I'm pretty sure she'd be fine with him if he didn't casually try to bite her leg and ninja out from his rustle tunnel at her! I feel a bit sorry for both of them, as Rosie is annoyed by Jack, and Jack has no-one to play with. We do play a lot with Jack, giving him lots of exercise, plus they both go outside. What are the odds of us being able to get another rescue cat, who wants to play with Jack but who leaves Rosie alone? I'm only just starting to think about this, so please don't think that I am rushing to get another, I'd just like to hear your views and experience - do you think it's possible? I would go back to the nice lady at CPL who gave us our two, and explain what we were looking for. She was very clear about the personalities of our two when we got them, so I think she would know about any of her current cats who were definitely NOT suitable.
