So we are considering adopting Piper and Poppy together. They were found in an abandoned car with a dead sibling at 1 week old, so they've been bottlefed the last 8 weeks. We also have Coriander, who despises them....... I wanted Coriander to be an indoor cat. My mom is very adamant about having 2 cats and at least one be an outdoor one, because we have chickens and mice tend to eat their food. Recently our cat Fina dissappeared, presumably by coyotes... Piper will definitely be indoors after that. But Coriander will have to be outside. I was thinking of adopting Poppy too. Since Coriander hates Piper, and Piper has no mom, I feel bad for her- she might like a friend. But Poppy will have to be the indoor/outdoor mouser. Poppy hasn't really inherited some necessary catlike skills, and she doesn't know her biting boundaries. Being that she's pure black I doubt she'll get adopted either. But if she goes outside Piper might want to too. Poppy would not be 100% outdoors. She would stay in all night and presumably most of the winter. So what do you think- Coriander outside, Piper inside, with no friend OR Coriander inside, Piper inside, Poppy inside/outside??
