Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Should I bring home another companion cat for my current cat?
My current cat is Ginoza, a two year old neutered male. He was recently adopted from a county shelter this month, and he adjusted very well to his new home--no problems with liter manners, very active and outgoing toward other humans.
But he does have a tendency to be very rambunctious, especially at night. He'll try to wake me up while I'm in three hours of sleep to play (he wrestles with one of my limbs, either arm or leg, despite having access to his toys and other amenities--Water, food, litterbox).
I'm wondering if bringing home a cat his age (maybe between 1 and 3 years?) would help him pass the time while I'm sleeping and/or at work. What gender should his companion be?
note: I've seen him interact with other unknown cats--he tends to watch them, but doesn't "stand his ground" or act too hostile toward them--he appears curious about them, and other animals (like dogs).
