I didn't want a new cat after Boyfriend, but I got one. He's an exoric
Persian.

Often we aren't the ones who get to choose.

What's his name?

After poor Sam died so young, I thought I'd get another cat of course,
but not yet. Maybe after a year or even longer. Only a few months later
I decided to visit a shelter, and found a new cat to bring home. It's
not always easy to predict when or if you'll be ready for a new cat.

I know how old he is, he'lll be 7 in September. I don't want a kitten. I
might not be alive in 20 years. He's proving to be quite difficult. I
haven't had a full nights sleep since i got him.

In what way is he difficult, and why can't you sleep? Does he make a
lot of noise at night or run around your bedroom? Part of it may be
just a matter of each of your getting used to the other. I remember
that Boyfriend would not use a litter box indoors. Have you tried that
with Wilbur?

It took months for Kerry and Cinnamon to settle down, and even now it's
more a case of each having their own zone than sweet affection between
adopted sisters. Cinnamon's zone is the bedroom, and she always wants
lots of petting when I go to bed, often arriving for her petting by
walking up the length of my body, putting paws in sensitive places.
Once, when I forgot to ensure Kerry was out of the bedroom before I
settled down for the night, I was woken up by Kerry bouncing off my
head. I think she was going for a kind of three-point jump - bedside
table 1, me, bedside table 2. There's reasons she's shut out of the room
at night, and it's not only because she pesters poor Cinnamon!

Kerry was probably a year old when I got her almost exactly a year ago
now. I chose an adult cat too. Cinnamon is probably about 11 or 12; and
was about 4 when she moved in.
