two at the present time. I just found an abyssinian at a rescue in my area that I might adopt. I have to convince the P's though. The two cats I have now are both aby mixes. The new one I want to get is a purebred female aby. The two I have have to live in seperate parts of the house because one is soo timid that she practically invites otherwise friendly cats to attack her! She refuses to stand up for herself and runs. The other cat I have was the subordinate female in a different house with a different owner. Now, she has learned that my older cat is afraid, and SHE has become the dominant one. My mother won't allow my older cat to be bullied and afraid, so she makes me keep the other one in the basement apartment where I spend most of my time. I really, really, ENVY any cat person who can successfully intergrate MORE than one cat in a household. It has never worked for me. I would like this third cat to either be strong enough to stand up to Lily, or so timid that she will back down to Blondie. I am not holding my breath though. Hopefully this new cat will adjust to one of my cats or the other.
