We have decided we need to expand our family. We already have 1 older female cat named Pooch, who at 10 years old is pretty calm if a bit grumpy. We are moving soon and want to get at least one kitten to sweeten the deal for our 7 year old daughter.
We are trying to decide if we should get one kitten or two. I’m leaning towards two; that way the kittens will play with/harrass each other instead of Pooch. On the other hand 2 kittens sounds like a whole lot of mischief.
Also, for extra credit: I already know that moving isn’t the best time to introduce a new kitten and Pooch will no doubt be royally pissed off, but we can’t go back on our promise to the girl. Do you think should we have the kitten(s) all over the house before we bring Pooch over and put her in one room, or let Pooch establish herself all over the new house first for a few days and then let the kittens out of their one room?
