Hello, I'm sort of doing a drive by on this board because I'm looking advice and input on a cat situation. I currently have a cat who is almost 2 years old and have been thinking about getting a second older cat. My cat, Venelope, is very timid and scaredy but warms up to people easily. She usually just watches them from a distance and will approach when she is ready for them to see her. She hasn't been around other animals since she left her mom and siblings at 6 weeks old (too young! they told us she was 8 weeks though.) and during the odd trip to the vet.
I want to get an older cat because they are usually more mellow and better behaved then a kitten but I'm not sure how Venelope would react. I know it's impossible for you guys to know anything about her, but I'm looking for stories from you on how you introduced a second, older animal.
