What’s better than one cat?
Two cats, that’s what!
And most of the time, kitties will agree, there are some moments when two cats are needed to make a situation just right.
While society has dubbed felines as aloof solitaires, cat lovers know kitties crave companionship. Not only do cats enjoy the company of their people, many cats thrive with other cats in the home, proving felines aren’t really the loners they’re made out to be. That said, some cats do need a home which allows them to be an only cat. And that’s fine too! In the end, it really comes down to the needs of each individual cat.
And to keep the peace among your kitty squad, PDSA Veterinarian Dr. Anna Ewers Clark recommends, “Always make sure they have separate food and water bowls, and spread these out so they can eat separately.”
“They’ll also need separate litter trays, scratching posts, beds and any other resources. A good rule is to supply one of each resource per cat, plus one extra, to ensure they can always choose to be alone if they prefer.”
Though cats enjoy company, they still need to be secure in their territory. Taking simple steps to be sure everyone has their own space will make the together time even sweeter. And sometimes, even funnier! Enjoy these feline duos proving two cats are better than one.
