Hi. I have been reading through your forums, and y'all have far more cat knowledge than me, so I am asking for your advice. We had 3 cats. Molly is our first cat. We got her when she was about 2 months old; she is now 8. About a month after we got Molly, we adopted Oliver. He is a few weeks younger than Molly, also 8. Then about 1 and a half years ago, we took in Gracie when our neighbors booted her out of their house and stopped feeding her. She is about 3. Well, my oldest daughter moved away to go to college, and this past weekend she came back to get her cats (Oliver and Gracie are her cats). Now Molly is the only kitty left. She wasn't overly affectionate with the other cats. At first Molly and Oliver were close friends, but Oliver is the dominant cat and would sometimes pick on her. Lately she would just mostly hiss at Oliver whenever he came near her. She was not usually nice to Gracie either. I kind of thought that maybe she would want to be an only kitty. But since they left she seems kind of lost. She follows me around everywhere (she didn't do this before). I was thinking that maybe since she is used to always having other cats around, I should get another cat. What do you think? If you think I should get another cat, would you suggest a cat or a kitten? Thanks for your help!
