Got my period today, and also a cat.
An old lady died. Her body was found three days later, and her cats were taken to the vet. The vet was tasked with finding them a home by Friday or, if this was not possible, to euthanise them 🙁 The vet called me, saying she knew it was a bit soon after losing Munchy, but would I like to come down and see them…
I went down to have a look. They were an Abyssinian named Flow and an Egyptian Mau named Isis. Flow was very small, nervous and absolutely beautiful and I wanted her immediately, but since she (according to the vet) had a submissive nature I was afraid Guppy would be too aggressive with her. Guppy has a history of being nasty to submissive cats.
So I brought home Isis, who is more dominant and also quite pretty, with a melodic miow. She is currently in the bathtub, hiding and afraid. I’ll wait until she settles a bit before introducing her to Guppy.
I have her on a trial basis, just for the night, to see if they get along… and also to decide if I want another cat. I’m not sure that I do. I have been worried about Guppy being lonely, but she seems to have been a bit better the past few days. I was kind of getting used to being a one-cat person, and okay with it.
I am unsure.
