The idea to adopt an old cat when I already have one - Patricia is almost 16 - is not very appealing because, if I do that, I will have two cat deaths in five years again. Plus I read it is easier for an old cat to like a young cat than another old cat.
But if I adopt a young cat, it can't share her food. I don't know if I could keep another cat out of her food and vice versa. When Patricia was a kitten it was very hard to make her eat the right food instead of Emily's adult maintenance formula.
How old should Patricia's next and last cat friend be?
