kitteh does not want
So we got another cat... for like 36 hours. Cat (our cat) had been making some really scary sounds and wandering all over the house at night, and I thought it might be because she was lonely or something. So I found someone online that was giving away kittens, made the 45 minute drive to pick one up, and brought it home only to be HATED by Cat. I have NEVER seen Cat so angry! And this poor little kitten, well... puffing up like this is all she could do to defend herself. I promptly found her a new home (a very nice family in Collinsville), and she was gone.
I understand that it takes time for a cat to get used to having another cat in the house (I read plenty of online articles after the "meeting" didn't go so well), but I can't even describe how upset/angry/scary/stressed Cat was. Ben and I decided we just didn't want to put her through that! Especially since the articles said it would take weeks, even months, for the cats to get along.
I got a text from the mom just a few hours after I dropped the kitty off saying that the whole family was in love with her already. I wish you well, puffy kitten! :)
