Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and would like opinions. We have a six yr. old cat-Phantom, a four yr. old cat-Quincy and a new kitten who we got a couple weeks ago-Boscoe. Phantom is tolerating Boscoe pretty well. Quincy won't run and hide when Boscoe is around but he decided he didn't want to sit on my lap (as he usually would) the other night when we rented a movie. Phantom was on my lap and my husband had Boscoe on his lap on a different piece of furniture but Quincy still didn't want to be even that close to Boscoe. Boscoe wants to play a lot more than Phantom and Quincy do and I think he's driving them nuts from that standpoint. We'd like to end up with four cats at some point. Phantom and Quincy are neutered males and Boscoe will be when the time is right. There is a little girl kitty available and we were wondering about getting her now-she's about the same age as Boscoe. I wondered if the two of them would play and give Phantom and Quincy some peace. But I don't know if that would be too much for Phantom and Quincy. If I waited a couple months and then got a new kitten, I'd be doing it to Phantom and Quincy again after things had completely settled down. I wonder if it would be better to get the second kitten now and just get this ajjustment period all over with in one fell swoop. So, fourth cat now or later? Any ideas?
