We were going to get along just fine with just one cat. I had 7 feral cats before Persi and decided the last cat in my life would be a pedigreed cat with champion parentage. We also agreed we would have just one cat. I will bet that is what a lot of people on this site said that now have 3, 4 or more cats and I now join you. I know there is lots of good information on this site about how to introduce cats which I will be carefully studying before the arrival of Alley on the freight plane tomorrow night. Alley is just that, a rescued alley cat from the streets of L.A. I have no idea what she is and I guess it does not matter but if you can tell me it would be appreciated. I will spend the day today fixin up her own private room for a while. As you can see, she is wearing a collar that contains useless information and has been boarding with our children in California where cats are not allowed for a while but her folks were never found so we are taking her in. I do not mean to sound melodramatic here but I had dreams last night of this spiraling into a houseful of cats. I have had two cats at once before and my first obstacle I can think of is to turn this alley cat into a house only cat like Persi. Well, I guess my future posts on this matter will be placed on the BEHAVIOR forum and when that all gets worked out and they are getting along together in perfect harmony I will make a new siggy and accept the fact number three could be just around the corner.
