Over a month ago, our indoor cat escaped and has not been seen since. After weeks of walking the woods and streets and checking the shelter we've decided to open our home back up to cats.
We'd like to take one from some family members who have a few too many cats. She's a lovely cat and greatly enjoys the other cats (more so, I think, then they enjoy her). We're worried she'd be bored without other cats to keep her company, so we'd also look into adopting a homeless from the shelter. This would also help make us feel less guilty.
Our initial plan had been to take the cat from the family members, let her get used to our place and then adopt a cat from the shelter in a few months time.
The alternative idea has been that maybe bringing two cats in together might be best, since our place would be neutral ground and there may not be territorial issues.
Any ideas which might be best?
