Question by chzbrgr: Should I get another kitten?
I recently got a 7-week old kitten and am wondering if it would be a good idea to get her a playmate. My reasons for this are:
-I think she was taken away from her mother and siblings too soon and could use some interaction with another feline to help her understand cat behavior and learn boundaries
-It would be nice to have something else for her to attack beside my feet
-It would keep her from being bored when I’m not around
However, there are a few extenuating factors:
-I live in a VERY small studio apartment
-I am moving to a different country in about 6 months, which is going to be difficult and traumatic enough with one cat, let alone two
-My boyfriend would think I was insane if I got another one (we don’t share an apartment, but he lives upstairs)
What are your thoughts on this? If you think I should get another one, what age and gender?
If I were to get the second kitten in 6 months once I’m back in the USA, would that be too late? Not only for her accepting the new guy but for her behavioral development and learning how to “be a cat”?

get another one…go same gender so it has a friend. and small could be cozy for the kittens, making them closer
