Both were EXCEPTIONAL with my daughter...(3 years old)...and I was able to actually pull them close to me (like hug) without them pushing away.

UGH. But now to see if I am ready emotionally!!

UGH. I got suckered in my this one kitten's charm and playfulness. It was like I TOTALLY forgot about Carmel (the calico) until after I got done paying for the kitten......and then I felt GUILTY. Guilty because I REALLY REALLY like Carmel...and then guilty because of Ashie again.

The kitten isn't here yet.....I have to get things together before I bring her home, but what about Carmel now???? She was like my first choice....stupid KITTEN TOTALLY had me at hello.

I DO think Carmel really is potentially "the one" Ashie might've sent now that I look back on it...because I can't stop thinking about her......but now I got myself into a different cat. WHAT DO I DO NOW!!!!!!

I don't know if I can do that! The vet bills would kill me, I think......

My husband thinks that because I "forgot" about Carmel for that instance, that she wasn't meant to be...but mannnn....I don't know. I just feel that strong connection to that stupid Carmel!!!!!!!!!!

Which cat chose you?

The way fiance chose Patches was because she kept trying to get his attention while he was looking at the other kittens until it dawned on him that patches was the cat for him.

Carmel did. When I opened her cage, she climbed RIGHT up on my shoulder and licked my face.

I only observed the kitten, really...except for when I intercepted its toy and it did a "tug-o-war" with me like a dog.

I don't know if they would let me change kitties since I already paid and everything. I haven't brought the kitten home yet, though.....

I feel terrible now. Well, not TERRIBLE...just weird-like now that I am home with the stuff I bought knowing that this kitten is going to use them.

Oh, I hope you can get Carmel, too. Sounds like you're already smitten!! Maybe you can "foster" until your husband forgets that she's a foster...!

To me, it sounds like Carmel is the cat for you. Everyone falls in love with kittens...who wouldn't? But it sounds like Carmel fell in love with you. If there is a way to get them both, do it! If you can't, as long as you are getting them from the same place I doubt they would have a problem with you taking an older cat instead of a kitten since they are harder to find homes for. Just follow your heart. Good luck! Let us know what you decide.

i agree. initially, 2 will cost more, but over the long run, if there is sickness, it'll probably be at different times.

And two cats are happier than one, y'know...

Honestly, if you have to choose one, see if you can get Caramel. Tell the adoption center that after thinking about it, an adult cat is better suited to your lifestyle & your family.

Both would be good

From their website:
"Our extensive health package worth $300 includes basic vaccinations; spaying or neutering; health screening; temperament testing and behavior advice; pet identification tag; heartworm and feline leukemia testing."

So see, most major medical is taken care of ... plus they have 2 for 1 prices on cats and kittens Maybe the people at the shelter could tell you if they would get along?

Edit again : Carmel is only 2 years old so not old at all. She could keep up with a young whippersnapper

I would get both as most early med stuff is taken care of and maybe your vet will give you discounts for multiple cats - mine does.
