I totally understand. My cat Harleigh comes from a shelter and is very possessive. I don't think she would share her space or me very well at all. Plus, I live in an apartment and am only allowed one cat. I just read an article the other day on how more than one cat in the home may put undue stress on cats who don't get along.

Sometimes I would like more cats again but our one and only right now- Stormy doesn’t not, in fact freaks out when another cat or dog is here. We don’t understand it but he’s our baby and we don’t want to make him miserable. We do want to travel more and it may get harder to find good in-home care for him, so another reason to not add to our family right now

My parents were like that for a short time, 3 cats and down to one. And then they adopted a stray and someone else gave them another...

We only have one cat now. He, Stormy is 10. Our two others went over the Rainbow 🌈Bridge 1 - 1 1/2 years ago. Both died of old age. I miss them so much still 😞

it is hard to tell how a new cat and a well established cat will react to each other. how old is your cat?
right now i'm working with a new addition to my other 7 cats. she is setting her boundaries with the other 7. right now there is hissing and chasing going on at times and then there are times of each one has their go to space for a nap. i think the problem with the new kitty is because she has been abused and several years old and has been abandoned by her owner and she needs to trust my other cats. i have noticed that lots of cats do pretty good with a buddy. some one to chase and play with especially if fairly young. if older it might do better with an older cat that is laid back and they could be comfort for each other.

right now if i go looking there probably will be 3-4 in the bedroom sleeping possibly on the bed or other pieces of furniture and maybe 3 in the office in different boxes (they love boxes from what groceries came in from those big box stores that use boxes for your groceries and not bags) and the new girl is on a table near me. she is sticking close to me right now as i have been the one who rescued her and have given her warmth and food.

good luck on what you decide on.

#3 is a very happy kitty now and so much loved by you! sometimes it takes longer for other cats to get used to a new kitty. thank you for taking that little girl.

right now i'm working on getting #8 cat used to my 7 others. she seems shy and layed back. she is sweet and gentle. she is a pity case. when she came to me she was very skinny and cold. she seemed to be an indoor cat, but tossed out in the very cold weather we have. she would of froze and starved. she is happily looking out the window at the moment.

I now have 3. I cant remember if I have been here since I got Ginger Snaps. She appeared on my steps one day. I had her taken away by the dog catcher. (not a bad thing where I live) two days later she was back on my door steps. Come to find out she was from a street over where she was fed but had hardly any human contact. From that day on she was mine. (yes i talked to her previous owner) She and Buddy get along fine My sensitive Prince still doesn't like her much.



Every day is a GIFT!

I still only have one cat, but it's my 4 year old Harleigh. Smokey passed away when she was 19 years old. I had the Shirley Temple of cats, and now I have one of the little Rascals! I still love Harleigh very much, but she's a simple looking black and white cat and very quirky, not at all like Smokey. I have to give Harleigh time to mature.

Just one, and considering that I've heard him growl when strange humans come by (e.g. to replace appliances), I don't think I want to find out how he'd react if I bring in a strange cat.

I have 4 in FL and 2 in NH :)

When I went away for school I couldn't take my 2 so my mom and dad took them, mom fell in love with DiNozzo so she kept him and JD fell in love with my uncle so I gave JD to him. JD now goes on play dates at my uncle's apartment complex.

Haven't raised a kitten b-4 so it's a wild ride. Addie and Buddy were both over a year old when they came in to our life.

Still miss old Addie, she was a good cat.

We have one indoor cat and we have part time custody of my mom's two cats.

We don't know how old our cat Daisy is because my mom rescued her 3 or 4 years ago. The poor kitty was thin, sick and bedraggled when she caught my mom's attention. She has hyper thyroidism so we guess she's a senior cat since it tends to hit older cats. Daisy stayed with us (and my mom's two cats) when my mom was in hospital nearly two years ago. Then she decided she liked us much more than my mom. She stayed and we adore her. She's just the sweetest, friendliest, ridiculous cat. Even if she's cost us the equivalent of a 2 week holiday in Hawaii in vet bills. I'd rather have this cat.

We have 7. We were down to 6, but last winter, there was a kitten freezing on our back stoop. We took her in, got her vetted and spayed, and actually DID adopt her out. It did not work, though, and she's been back with us since Spring. We were going to try one more time with her, but "just never got around to it", and now, she's a part of our family.

I'd like to have fewer cats, but the ones I have have all been with me (except for this newest one, Marbles) since they were kittens. We are bonded.

Only one now. She is 11 years old, and I think might be losing her hearing a bit. Since her litter mate died a few years back she has become more social and more brave. The other cat was the Boss Cat, and I think it took this one a while to realize that Boss Cat isn't around.

I have 3 of my own right now and 2 visiting cats that are my oldest daughter's. She will be getting them soon when she moves into her new residence.
