Friend of mine went to a shelter and asked for a cat that hated other cats. They were thrilled, apparently cat-aggressive cats were very hard to get rid of, doubly so if they're already adults. But she wanted a cat that wouldn't be lonely while she was at work and just wanted a "roommate".

As someone working at a no-kill shelter, I would love if more people wanted that. We have cats that would very much prefer to be an only pet all the time. I also need someone to take a frightening devil beast cat, and keep it far away from children.

While it may be generally true, there are still a good amount of cats that are happier being the only one, if you spend enough time in shelters you will see this.

My cat took 2 years to accept my ex's cat enough to sit on the same couch or bed at the same time (the other cat was a ragdoll that wanted to be besties, it was 100% my cat). When my ex and I split, he was noticeably happier being the only cat.

I won't adopt another cat until he passes away because I know he is happier this way... but when that happens, I do plan to adopt a bonded pair because I want more than one cat.

Please don't mislead. Some cats need to be alone. Most cats are better off with one or more friends, but some cats don't go together with others. So it's not alwahs a terrible thing.

I deeply regret not getting my cat's sibling too from their rescue litter. Have a tiny apartment and thought I didn't have enough space to give comfy home to two. It's my first cat, didn't know / appreciate how social some cats are, and my cat clearly would love a sparring partner.

As long as you have at least 2 rooms, it's fine. One room could be hard but could work. Small spaces aren't a problem for two cats if there are enough cat trees, caves, tunnels, etc. Young cats up to year two will play and run a lot... A LOT... Soo more space is indeed easier and in theory better but more space with less cat furniture can actually be worse than less space but more cat furniture.

Like, I get it... you commit to just one and thats all you plan for, but ever since I got my first pair of littermates, I know I'll never end up getting just one bb at a time again. A built-in playmate, source of comfort, and all-around buddy is such a gift to give your new friend(s). It's honestly not much more expensive, and everyone's happy.

I have a brown (Ziggy) tabby and an orange (Monkey) dummy, too!! Got them just over a year apart, and, while Monkey is an insecure turd who spends most of his time harassing Ziggy, they truly adore each other and Monkey has helped Ziggy come out of his shell so much! He used to be a nervous and frightened little kitty who never meowed unless in pain or having a bad dream, and since getting Monkey, he is so much braver, significantly less skittish, way more affectionate with strangers, and meows regularly - which is adorable, because he squeaks and chirps.

Anyway. I just love them so much, and they could never be separated; I don't know how Monkey would feel about it, but Ziggy would be devastated without Monkey around. Bonded pairs are 112% worth it. Also, watching them chase and attack each other and run into things is hilarious.

Sorry if your orange one isn't a dummy, by the way, but you should check out r/oneorangebraincell because it is a hoot.

I’ve heard the same from everyone I know who has adopted a bonded litter pair, and I’ve since decided that any future kitty fur babies I adopt will come in twos.

My girl is too old now and doesn’t get along with other cats, but I regret not socializing her when she was young so that she wouldn’t be alone all day while I’m at work.

notfamous808

She may not be too old! My cat was 4 when I moved out of my ex’s house with him and my dog. I left his cat there, which was for the best because she was aggressive toward anyone but him, including my cat and dog (who had both lived with her their entire lives). A friend went out of town and I babysat her kitten for her and just a few days into the visit, my cat was playing with her. I decided then that my cat needed a feline friend, and began my hunt for the perfect kitty for him. A few months later I ended up with a kitten of my own (flash flood, he came up in my moms ditch and my niece saved him - love a good ditch kitty lol), and it took about a month for him to get my other cat and dog to snuggle with him and accept his love. Honestly I’m so grateful for it every day because my older cat and dog didn’t really have a relationship, and they do now because of that great little ditch kitty. Or it is totally possible that she just doesn’t vibe with other animals like my first cat. Obviously you would know her best lol. Im just saying you never know what could happen! She could end up being really great with a kitten!

We had a senior lady, about 14, when I brought home my kitten set. She definitely was displeased in the beginning but once she established herself as the matriarch, she developed a grudging acceptance that bordered on fondness for them over time.

PhoenixStorm1015

If I may add, the maintenance isn’t that high either. Feed at the same times. Same food. Our babies are bonded and they could not give two shits. Same water, same litter, I have to stop them from eating each others’ food, and of course watching them play is the most adorable.

If my two cents is worth anything, OP, adopt them both. Aside from vet obvs, the expense and maintenance increase is negligible in my experience, but the value added out of having two happy, healthy babies to keep eachother company AND be extra adorable more than outweighs it. Keep the siblings and reap the rewards of double the cuddles, double the cute, and double the nonsense.

My cats are brother and sister and we found them both, since they are strays. They literally barely hang out with each other and will ignore each other, but if they don't see one another for more than a few hours they get very anxious.

Our youngest cats are brothers. We were only looking to adopt one, but when we met them any time they were separated (like if my husband was holding one, and I was holding the other), they would cry and cry until they were together again. Soooo we called our landlord and they told us we could have an extra if we didn’t blab it around to our neighbors. We’ll never adopt a single kitten again, having a pair was a blast and it put less pressure on our grownup cats to constantly entertain them. When they were little they liked to play a game where one would be upstairs and the other would be downstairs and they would call to each other like they were playing Marco Polo. They’re just the best. 💕

I adopted bonded brothers, and unfortunately one didn’t survive long. We got another kitten a couple months later, but they never really bonded.

Please, please consider getting both. It is not that much more work with two, and you get twice the love.

If both are financially feasible for you, I cannot recommend a bonded pair enough. This is Toast and Waffle and they love each other so dang much. It's so sweet. I don't know how they would have managed if separated.

Both! Kitties really thrive with a companion! I adopted my cat Rudy (left) back in January and he didn’t get along super well with my other cats. They just didn’t want to play with him. Then back in early October we took in this 10-week-old foster kitten and they just hit it off right away. They sleep together, play together, eat together, everything. We just finalized her adoption today because, really, how could you separate those two?

As someone with a striped short hair and a long black hair, both. Definitely both. Freya (striped) and Skugge (black) both agree.

Both!! To split them apart at this age robs them of an incredible opportunity that they can never get back. They’ll be happier, you’ll be happier, everyone wins.

Our German shepherd pup found 2 kittens at our front door, we already had 2 grown older ragdoll cats but we ended up keeping both. They’re so much fun to watch. The ragdolls aren’t bonded like the two siblings are.

Yup. Agree with the rest. As someone who recently rescued a single kitten from an alley, he definitely needs a friend and I'm now looking at shelter kittens

You could actually cause alot of emotional distress if you separate them and they’re a bonded pair. If your family can handle both, it really should be both.

Pleeease do both. They are clearly friends and bonded. You’ll be grateful you did in time. It’s not a huge leap in funds etc. Plus, you’ll get many important internet points!

There is only one right answer here, and you know what you have to do. Luckily there are plenty of holiday sales in pet supplies so it should not cost much to get two of everything.

Both. My parents grabbed one out of a bonded pair when I was a kid and the first month was heartbreaking with him looking for his brother. I’m still convinced my buddy died after five years because he missed his brother.

Yup, both. I adopted a bonded pair, dad - 3, and daughter 6 months. That was 6 yrs ago. Still a beautiful relationship that I can't imagine breaking up.

Lol no joke.

We were pretty convinced it didn't make sense to adopt both. I'm glad I asked here because as someone said, we'd feel regretful thinking about the one we didn't adopt if it was only one.

I adopted a kitten, and new a year later felt he needed a friend, and got another kitten. Seven years later they still keep each other company.

But for reals, two kittens are better than one! They learn social cues so much better that way.

Please please please get both. Do not separate them. Yes they will still both live a happy life on their own but having two cats is amazing. Especially if they’re siblings. They play with each other all day and groom eachother. Watching them lick each others heads is so cute and it’s nice for them when you’re not home to have eachother. If my cats get scared of a loud noise, they hide together. Please don’t separate them

Both! We have a similar pair! They weren’t littermates but we adopted them at the same time.

Jumping on the "both" bandwagon. I rescued a kitten off the street recently and I wish I had another one to play with him so he doesn't pester my older cats constantly!

You'll witness something magical between them.. an unconditional love bond. 💕

I didn't realize how much i needed a second cat, untill i got one.

both is the only right answer! Adopted these siblings two years ago after initially getting just one. Learned real fast that it’s way better for them this way! Plus, double the cuteness.

Both is the correct answer. These babies weren't littermates but bonded within 2 days of meeting.

Both! Siblings are the best, two strays we found in our backyard when they were barely 5 weeks old. Max and Ruby.
