|I believe that every kitten should grow up with a buddy
I just figured that between law school and ultimately a career in law, I wasn't going to the time to give Ally the affection and play time that she needs, but another cat about her same age would.
I only regret that I didn't get Ollie sooner as it may have been easier when Ally was still 6 weeks old or so rather than 4 months old. When I got Ollie, Ally was 4 months old and he was 3 months old (but about her same size). Now she's 5 months old and he's 4 months old, and he's bigger than her by a good pound or so. They're having lots of fun though nonetheless. I feel that I made a good decision getting her a friend and Ollie is family now too.
Also, with her being born feral, I figured another cat would help her feel comfortable because she isn't 100% comfortable with people other than me whereas he is all about
meeting other people. Other people, the dog, etc. He loves meeting anything that moves and is warm.
