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
