I really appreciate all of your comments Bengal Nation!

I want that second kitten but have been hand wringing for some reason (Double meowing, only two hands, two cats on the counter during dinner time, double engagement ??). You have all been quite supportive on the idea. I know you're all cat lovers but still, I needed to hear the reinforcement from all of you. I heard the words I was looking for. Looks like a new baby is probably coming my way! Thank you.

PS, Love all the kitty pictures

Hi
Before I brought my Female Bengal home, I also had a Oriental Bella she is 11yrs and Kia my Siamese she is about 9yrs....
Luli my Bengal has settled in great but Bella is still the Boss and she is the one that will sit on my lap, Luli tends to sit by my side....
Luli does however get into a chasing mood and will pick on Kia for some reason, she wont do this to Bella, mind you Kia is getting a bit too fat and the excercise up and down the stairs chased by luli is doing her good...lol
:lol: :lol:
I am so glad that they have all settled in great.
I did introduce Luli to Jasper my shih tzu and they are good, she likes to play with his tail... I didn't introduce her to my Mastiff Choi for a couple of months as he tends to be clumsy but soft as a teddy bear...
I had no worrys with him, hes not that bothered and all get on Brill!!! :lol:

Hi, we got two kittens staright away as we both work and they have proved to us its the right thing to have done. They are a little bit all over the place but quickly learn together so can be an asset!
Into our third weekend and now they have found the benifit of warm laps and today have had both asleep on me and it was a good time to cut their nails. So get your kitten and you will see the benifits ten fold. All the answers on this subject seem to justify the reason to have two or more!
Happy hunting. :D

I'm in the same boat! My boy is 8 months and showing signs of being bored. I'm looking into getting him a friend - just has to be the right one!! Goodluck!

Introduced a 12week old male kitten into household alongside his 2year older brother 5days ago. Prepped the oldest with zilkene, it's great stuff and I'll get more. He is often outside. I have a kitten room, which is working well but the eldest refuses to meet his younger brother. Pride/scardey cat combo? Glad someone said feliway plug-in a waste of money but will consider the spray. Doing the sock ceremony for smells. Have cardboard castle in the neutral kitchen area. Just wish no1 son would stay long enough to meet no2 son! Time is a great healer I hope. Before he feels he needs to sleep outside forever. :sad: we miss his bengally highness xx Ps: the dog is a legend and no problem

Multi-cat households can be an issue! Each cat has its own personality and you have to blend all of that together. Feliway is great, but it has to be in the area of the problems. The spray works well, too. It just takes time for two kitties to get along. And you say that the older cat is outside! This will become an issue for the kitten at some point. It's difficult to have an outdoor cat and an indoor cat, unless you're planning to let the kitten outside at some point. Time and patience and working with the cats in introducing them is the key.

Kitten will go outside when he is neutered and chipped. Concerns that two males will be an issue. Anyone else found this?

Male cats are territorial, even neutered males. One will become the alpha male and there may be some aggression going on until that it settled. If you have other cats in the neighborhood, there is going to be a hierarchy that can result in vicious cat fighting and serious injuries. I'm not an advocate of cats going outside unless they are supervised. I read every day about a cat who has vanished and the owner is extremely upset. Sometimes the cat returns home, many times, it does not. The whole keeping cats indoors vs outdoors is subjective. You're going to have to get your kitten used to the outdoors and the yard, so supervising the kitten outside in the beginning is the key. You don't want the kitten running off and not knowing how to get home. Make sure your neighbors are familiar with your cats so they don't go adopting them if they come around to their house.
