I have two female cats. One is a year and a half old, one is 10 months old. |
My sister is about to rehome a 3 year old cat she adopted a few months ago. This cat is very sweet and bonded to her, but very timid and hides when her fiancé is home. She initially adopted him with another cat that he was bonded with but the other cat was very sick (unbeknownst to her) and she unfortunately had to have him put down two days after she brought them home. He is a sweet cat and has never hissed or scratched while she has had him. Just timid.
My two cats are loving to each other and sweet. They play fight only. The 1 year old one was so excited from the first second we brought home the kitten (she was a few months old when we got her) and they never fought or anything. We also had a 19 year old cat at the time who was a little grumpy at the new additions but they all also got along fine and bonded.
Can anyone give me any insight or advice? I really want to take the cat but my SO is wary. He loves cats but he is worried about fights and he said it will be up to me to surrender the cat to the spca if it doesn't work out which would break my heart.
Is it possible to bring a new cat home to an existing two cat household? Is it a long shot? I would be traveling this cat from 8 hours away but I'm willing to put in time and effort if there's a good chance they will eventually get along. I've never had experience bringing home an adult cat to existing cats, only kittens/young cats.
