As some of you know, my Kizmet passed away this past weekend. He was 10. Ben is nearly 3, and has lived with other cats his whole life. When he arrived he had a brother and a sister. Both have passed on now, and he's very clingy with me. He really loved Kizmet. Playing with him, just being around him. I do want to get him a sibling, although not right this moment. I am thinking about what would be a good fit for the both of us when the time comes, does anyone have any advice? He has a dominant personality, loves to play and cuddle.
I'm not sure if he'd be 'less threatened' by a small kitten, or more compatible with a cat his own age. I know that whoever comes into our home will take some adjustment for sure. I'm also not sure when we should get a new sibling. Sooner? Later? I don't want to upset him more with another upheaval in the house, but he gets nervous when I'm gone and is clingy when I come home. He'd never been alone in the house until Kizmet went to the hospital last week. He's definitely not a loner cat!
