Adopting a second cat...possible problems

Post by Zaccydupe » Sat Jan 02, 2016 7:38 pm

After much soul searching and four months after having my beautiful Zac put to sleep I am looking to adopt a 2nd cat to hopefully be a companion for Poppy aged 8. My initial thoughts are to adopt a boy perhaps aged 3 - 4 but after visiting an adoption centre someone pointed out that if the boy had recently been neutered he may still have those 'urges' and it would be a problem for Poppy. That is the last thing I need but it wasn't a problem when adopting Zac when he and Poppy were aged 1 but if anyone can give advice on this it would be much appreciated.

Even after typing this I am feeling so guilty as I am still heartbroken after losing a gorgeous boy, I wish Poppy could talk so she could tell me what to do but I dont like her being on her own all day.
