Wondering about changes

Hi everyone! Patzy here. My mommy thinks I need a companion because she works too much (and has been proven by the lack of posts she has helped me with lately)!

For one thing she is not sure if I end a little sister to train or a little brother to train? Or even an older brother to calm me down?

In her experience, girls do not always get along. But also boys get along best with boys.

Then there is breeds or looks. Most peeps don’t agree with mommy but she thinks their patterns and hair length have a lot of bearing on their personalities.

One example, When she brought in a stray Siamese from work and she had tabbies and black cats (total of 6) the Siamese decided to move to the house across the street that had 9 Siamese cats. We thinks that tells us that even cats, like people, Ike to be with others who are close to the same. We had Guido the Siamese for about a month keeping him strictly inside and neutering him, when later mommy got the call from the neighbor lady that Guido was there. He had a name tag and collar which mommy always put on her cats – both indoor and outdoor! This is very important. Since she didn’t mind one more cat and mommy was glad she rescued him from a busy street, it was all good. Mommy still said hello to Guido when she walked past with her dog Buddy and Guido would always come running for petting. He knew her but he was happier there and that’s ok.

Also, When I watch cat videos with my mommy I react more to cats who look like with the tuxedo face. I don’t spend a lot of time in the mirror but I recognize cats who look like me. And my mommy thinks that tuxedo cats – Black or gray have a distinct set of personality traits including mischievous, playful, smart and like games like fetch and they will usually wrap their arms around your neck with purrs.

But Patzy is also a tortoiseshell so she has some traits like being loud and demanding which tuxedos normally don’t have.

So mommy is also thinking an orange/gold/yellow tabby or tuxedo since she has some of those markings on her and those type of cats are 99% male and are very Mello. As well as Tuxedo cats. Look at Marley at Marks Mews who gets along perfectly with Iza and Ayla the Siamese.

That’s not the only example. We are also thinking about not just black or orange cats.

What breed/coloration do you think would go well with a tortoiseshell/Black Tuxedo cat? Mommy is looking for personality wise and maybe a title bit looks. But she is more worried about who I would like.

Animal shelters around her are great but don’t have meeting rooms for cats. Only dogs. Although it can take awhile for cats to accept each other

Luvz, Patzy

This is my life with my new sweetie pie of a tuxedo/tortie kittie named Patzy. (Short for Patches but with a Z to honor the cat who came before her, Izzy who was named after Izzy Stradlin from Guns N Roses. I named all my animals after 80’s rockstars back then.)

  1. the mama thinks the same… two girls can be a challenge;O) I think a bro or sis ehat looks like you would be purrfect, so you look the same but different… and always beautiful ;O)
    I wish there would be meeting places for cats too, it is important that they tolerate each other, not only dog fights can end painful, so to have such a first meet&greet area would be not bad…

      1. If wee could afford a second kat then maybee….butt mee costss LadyMum about $150. a month fur mee speshell foodss an medss! An IF wee had more $money$ mee wood want mee Brofur Tyerrone to come live with us…..


      2. We totally understand. Mommy had a huge drop in wages when the housing market fell apart in 2008 so she was dropped to part time and then in 2011 so no-time except temp work and some minimum wage jobs. Then in 2011 the housing picked up a lot but it still took her until 2014 to find a new job in her field and then in 2017 to show her new boss how great she is at her job. Her boss and his wife can’t give her enough praises!

        So now she is caught up with old bills and collections and can save a good amount of money every month. It is wonderful. But she is not a shopper so that means she doesn’t spend the money she saves, except a little on me and a little on her, and she saves 1/3 of her paycheck every month.

        We know how to live on the cheap. Maybe too well! Mommy should be getting mani/pedis and massages but she is thrifty.

        But as for bringing another kitty in this home, the only issue is whether they will get along. It’s a great issue to have but still hard to decide if Patzy really wants a sibling.

  4. Aww…what a wonderful thought of having another kitty around, Patzy. I had a little tuxedo sister, when I lived with my mother, but I’m very much a loner, so I tolerated her, like any other cat that I have met, but that’s my story, I know you would love to hear from an expert 😉 A few bloggie furriends have torties and they all have different kinds of breeds, maybe you can ask them? Granny always says, the one you feel a connection with, or who comes to you, belongs with you and is meant to be. Good Luck with finding a furrever sibling, sweet girl ❤ Pawkisses for a Happy Sunday 🙂 ❤

    1. So if a kitty my mommy has a connection to may be a kitty I would have a strong connection to also? I know that the moment I saw my mommy at the shelter that she would understand me and we had a bond. I’m with her almost the whole time she is home so I still might be jealous. But I look at Shoko and Tyebe of The Canadian Cats and it is working out for them ok (at least on-screen. MOL). I guess I can get over a little jealousy so I will tell my mommy to start looking. I need a playmate and even maybe a cuddlemate. (Mommy might be jealous also if I spend too much time with a new mate). There is a lot to think about. But two is always better than one, don’t you think?

      1. Yes, I’m sure of that, Patzy, it only takes some time to get used to each other and one day you two will sit on your mom’s lap at the same time, one on her right side and one on the left…that sounds good huh 😀 Pawkisses 🙂 ❤
