Adopting a Kitten? Make it a Double!

If you’re thinking about bringing a kitten into your life, there are many reasons why you should actually consider doubling that and bringing home a pair. Yes, think two instead of one.  starting off with two may actually be much easier and more beneficial… for the kittens and for you.

I’ve done countless consultations over the years with people who had adopted a kitten and then a couple of years later realized they wanted a second cat. Since adult cats are territorial, the introduction process often requires some finesse and lots of patience. In many cases, the pet parents had originally thought about adopting two kittens at once but were concerned about the added work. In reality, a second kitten wouldn’t have added much extra work at all and the benefits of companionship would’ve greatly enriched both cats’ lives. Starting off now with two feline youngsters is much easier than adding a second adult cat down the road.
