I have been thinking about getting a second cat for about 6 months now and after researching online, I found that a kitten would be my best bet to pair with my current cat. I was originally going to get an older cat because I know they tend to be less likely to be adopted. But I want both cats to be happy together. I visited my local animal shelter yesterday and knew I was in trouble the second I walked into the cat room. I wanted to bring them all home! After much internal debate and loads of snuggling with any one of them that I could get my hands on, I went back this morning and adopted a kitten. He is at the vet right now, being microchipped, etc. (The shelter sends them all at one time to get exams and everything) He'll come home later today or tomorrow. I am so excited about this new addition! The shelter had named him Xander and I am keeping that name. He is a little less than 3 months old. Isn't he adorable??
