Update on my new kitty
I posted a while back about getting a new kitty to hopefully become buddies with my resident siamese cat whose pal died earlier this year. It turned out the new cat was very aggressive toward my cat and I ultimately decided I had to take him back to the fortunately no-kill shelter.
We loved the new cat but decided we couldn't keep putting our resident cat through the trauma of trying to integrate the new cat who would likely never be his buddy. The whole ordeal was traumatic for us too as we'd never "returned" a cat. So then I thought maybe I should just forget this idea of getting a new buddy cat. I decided to make one last effort with a "kitten" as everything I'd read indicated that would likely make for an easier integration.
So I got a six month old kitten a week ago. This picture is from today and bad as I feel about returning the other cat, this makes me feel like I did the right thing.
