I already have two beautiful little girls and I'm considering getting a third. I'm happy with my two little girls, but it makes me sad to think there are unwanted cats out there with no home and that nobody seems to want. I ideally want a kitty who is having some trouble finding a new home. I'm not majorly eager to just bring any other cat into my life, and would prefer one who is having some difficulties finding a loving family, so I can at least help one who may otherwise be forgotten for even longer.
Today I spoke to a rescue centre about it and they told me they have a 3 year old cat called Libby who has been with them some time, not because of anything wrong with her, but because people tend to overlook black and white cats, so I think it'd be a great opportunity to give a chance to a kitty who might otherwise be without a loving family for a long time. My little girls are roughly 8 - 9 months old now, so it worries me a little that they may be too playful for Libby, but the woman at the rescue centre told me she's used to having other cats around her and if they are too playful, she'll just find a quiet place away from them.
Most rescue centres here in the UK are also against keeping cat's indoors only, but the woman I spoke to told me that all her cats are indoor only and so there wouldn't be any problems with me planning to keep her as an indoor only cat.
I already read up about proper introductions when I got Chloe, although the process was quite easy then, probably because Sophie and Chloe were still very young at the time, so I imagine I'll have to follow it a bit more strictly with Libby.
I'm just wondering if people here could advise me about any risks I need to look out for. If I do decide to adopt Libby, she'll definitely be having a vet check before she has any close contact with Sophie and Chloe but are there other things that may need to be tested for?
