The cat I have is a 8 year old neutered male Siamese and Himalaya mix. He craves attention, loves talking, playing, but he isn't much of a cuddlier. When i was living with my mom and brother, we had no problem with giving him affection and attention since there were three people in the house. Since I moved in with my husband, I feel bad since I'm not able to give him the attention he needs due to work. He even gets a lonely that he starts whining for attention the second one of us walks away or isn't there which makes me feel horrible :(. I would love a cat that he could get along with and make him comfortable Me and my husband want to get him a friend that he can be with when we are gone. We are thinking about getting a female cat since I've heard male cat's are more accepting of female cats and get along with them easier rather than another male. However, we are not sure exactly of what type of cat to get. Would it be ideal to get a cat that also has a lot of energy and needs a lot of affection so they could comfort each other? Or would it be better to get a more laid back cat that doesn't need as much attention, but does have energy. I would love a cuddly cat if possible since my cat isn't a cuddlier. I've heard ragdolls are good lap cats, but I'm not sure if a ragdoll will be a good companion for a Siamese cat since they are pretty laid back. I was also thinking about another Siamese mix, but I'm not sure if putting two needy cats together will work or if they would get along. I would appreciate any suggestions on what personality would be ideal for my baby :)!
I have a picture of him as my avatar and I have uploaded some pictures of him on my album if anyone is curious to what he looks like.
