Default To adopt another cat or not?

I'm having a dilemma. From everything I've read, it would help Boo if he had another kitten around his age to play with. I know that there are plenty of kittens that need homes. I could possibly even get a teenage cat. The reason I haven't already gotten him a playmate and me another baby is costs and care. I'm worried that I won't be able to give the level of care that needs to be given to 2 kitties. I never want to be put in the position where I am worried money is an issue in getting my babies the best care. If I have 2 maybe they will both get a lower level of care. I've already spent around $500 dollars on Boo for vet visits and medicines. That's not including toys/food/health care products. I'm a worrying mom and take him to the vet at his first signs of distress.

What I really need is opinions. Would it be better for Boo if he had the company of another cat, but possibly sacrificed some of his vet care for the other cat? Or should I just keep him by himself and keep devoting all my attention to him?

Hi, worrying mom ! I still wish to suggest that you would take another one in, so Boo can enjoy a playmate, especially when you are not home.
I’ m rest assured that you are a very responsible mom. However, you don't really need to offer them the royal cat care and provision, I believe what you can give them will be definetely better than when left in a shelter or even on the street. Mine share their toys, I mean I dont really need to buy three of the same toy for the three of them.

I agree Irene. I'm going to have to do some shelter hunting and work on convincing the rest of the household that another kitty would be a good idea! It might take awhile, or even be impossible but it's worth a try, right?

Hallo!
I believe that Boo needs a friend!!


In general in my country i spend about 100 $ per months for 2 cats.
These are meals (dry Chicken Soup 2.7 kg),WC filler. The vaccinations - once per year, this is about 12 $ ( with rabies) per cat.
Vitamine's about 10 $ per pot.

The third cat lives with mum))

I found the most beautiful kitten in a shelter about an hour and a half away from my house that is just a few days older than Boo. I'm just so conflicted! It's driving me crazy. I want to get him a playmate so bad and I trust all of your advise. I'm just worried so much about finances. A lot is going on in my life money wise (planning a wedding, and then after that maybe even planning for a baby). I don't want Boo or another cat to get less than what they deserve. And it would never be an option to give up any of my babies. If I get a new cat it will be for life. This is the picture of the kitten that was on the website of the shelter that linked to petfinder.com.

Oh, he's amazing! I would take him right now. I recommend you to adopt
another one to be Boo's playmate, you MUST do it now. It's worth of it!
