My cat Joey is 7 yrs old and is a mixed breed indoor/outdoor cat. He is very lovable and friendly with us (never had a scratch on me). About a year ago we rescued a mixed breed male cat that we called Max (about 1.5 yrs old)... Unfortunately Joey and Max never got along... Max kept spraying everything and never got used to us... we tried to make Max as comfortable as we could but after a couple of month he finally just took off and never returned. My 10-year old daughter misses him dearly and wants a kitten badly now. I am torn... the experience with Max wasn't great... he sprayed everywhere and it took me several weeks to finally get rid of the smell... I am not sure if my older cat will tolerate the competition. If so, what do you suggest I get? Should it be a male or a female? How should I introduce him/her? What about the litter box? Joey doesn't use a litter box, he goes outside... Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! THANKS!
