Seeking advice on getting a third cat
As many of you know, I have two Ragdolls. My boy is 20 months and my girl is almost 1 year. I have been thinking about a third, but they are very expensive and I frankly can't afford it right now. Someone I know who also has Ragdolls contacted me today about a "rescue" (sort of) she knows of. The kitten was placed with his brother with a man who never had cats before and then decided he wasn't a cat person. He returned them to the breeder. They were placed separately. The "rescue" was placed with a couple and the woman has developed health problems and the husband doesn't want the burden of the cat any more. He is less than a year old, 8 or 9 months I think. We would be his third home in one year. So sad! I am interested, but am wondering what I need to be concerned about. If he is an "alpha" (bossy) personality I may have to say no. My boy cat is the well established boss and my girl is relatively shy (well, shy compared to Mr. Bossy). My two kitties love each other and accepted each other instantly. But they were younger (he was under a year and she was 12 weeks). I would probably introduce this kitty slowly (keep him in the den when we aren't home so Mr. Bossy doesn't beat the crap out of him, and keep them separated at night with DH with the kitten and me with the current two or vice versa).
What do you think? I know many of you have 3 or more, what do I need to watch out for?
