My littermate/brother recently died really suddenly. (We think he had a seizure.) I seem really lonely and clingy to my parents since I have never lived without him. My parents are going to get me a new friend but aren't really sure what kind of cat to get.
I am a 1.5 year old neutered male. I am friendly but can sometimes be stand off-ish and like to be alone. I am sometimes territorial, especially in a new place. I am still really playful and loved to wrestle with my brother.
My parents are going to slowly introduce us but were wondering if anyone had advice. Would it be better for me to get a kitten or an older cat friend? What about a male or female?
