This morning I had to put my kitty baby Chip to sleep, due to urinary blockage issues. I am distraught, and swore that I would never even consider getting another cat--I just get too attached.
We still have Georgie, who was adopted as a kitten when Chip was 3. She is now 5.
Chip and Georgie always got along great -- until about two weeks ago when Chip\'s condition worsened. She wanted nothing to do with him and even tried to attack him on several occasions, which broke my heart.
Since she came into our home, Georgie has been the alpha cat.
My question is this: Do you think that, eventually, Georgie would welcome another brother or sister into the home, or are we best off being a one-cat family? If we did decide to adopt another cat, would it be best to get another neutered male? Kitten or adult?
I know I\'m not ready for this at this time, but somehow it\'s comforting thinking about saving another cat when I\'ve lost mine.
