I really appreciate the comments about your experiences and suggestions for a good friend for Bailey. But I had to chuckle. Here's a really trimmed down synopsis of the advice given so far:
2 boys good
2 boys bad
2 girls bad, boys better
2 girls ok
big age gap bad
don't get a kitten
do get a kitten
hee hee hee! Absolutely no offense intended, by the way!
I have a couple of friends who both have 2 male cats who are good friends.
Back home, we used to have 2 female cats who never got along.
Anyone out there with good or bad boy/girl combinations?
Bailey's actually pretty easy-going, and social, and he's fixed (forgot to mention this in the earlier post). He's still quite young as he's not yet 2. He loves to play and sometimes plays quite rough. A kitten is always cute and fun, and at first I thought this might be best since a kitten should have a lot of energy. But now I wonder if it may not be a good idea, as Bailey is fairly large. Basically I think we need a cat that can hold his/her own with Bailey and be able to keep up with him. Hmmm.
