Hi. I'm new here. Our family has 2 Himmies--Beau is a male flame point almost 13, Benedict (Benny) is a male lilac point age 3, and our recent addition is Angel a female solid white extreme face Persian age 5 1/2. I am thinking about adding another female Persian age 1 1/2 to our family--is four cats too many? Please advise. Thanks.

Welcome to you and your furry crew!!  Cheesy  Most of the people here will say that there's no such thing as too many cats  :wink:  but I suppose it would depend on your circumstances -- if you have the time, money for vet expenses, and room for an extra kitty... why not??  Cheesy

Can't wait to see pictures of the fur family!  Cheesy

Cheesy Hi, welcome to the site. I have a flame point Himmie and a Norwegian Forest cat. If you have the money, time and space for 4, I'd go for it. Can't wait to see your furry family  :wink: .

Thanks for your input...we also have 2 dogs, so adding another cat would mean 6 pets, plus our 6 1/2 year old son! My husband is not crazy about another cat, though...I just thought it would be nice to round out the group, but then again it could upset the apple cart. We have plenty of room and lots of love to go around, and I'm at home all day so the pets do keep me busy. Please continue to let me know your newly adopted girl is quiet and reserved...i think she may miss the company of her sister. We have only had her 6 weeks. Would it even be a good idea to add another cat? Please share your experiences with me. Thanks.

Brandy was a solitary cat for a while. My husband and I have had him from a kitten. He adjusted being alone for a while because we kept him entertained with toys and gave him lots of attention when we got home from work. His personality is very congenial and he gets along well with other animals. We've had lizards, a snake, my mother-in-law's dog (briefly) and now we have another cat.

Brandy's first feline companion was my Maine Coon from when I was 12, Mel Gibson. Mellie was living with my mom because she loved him so much she didn't want to part with him, but she did when she had gotten sick in 2001. Mellie took the role of Alpha and for a while I wondered if they'd get along. They ended up doing just fine when we got our own house in 2002. Then that summer, Mellie passed away from renal failure.

The following months we took in a stray living outside our friend's house in New Haven. She was an abandoned Norwegian Forest cat. We named her Molly. Brandy and her hit it off instantly, which was shocking to me. Maybe it was because she had a close resemblance to Mellie, or the fact she was female. Who knows for sure, but the two became inseparable. She died at the ripe old age of 20 (we got her at 18 years old. Vet estimate). Now we have another Norwegian Forest, a mix actually, all black named Midnight who's another male. The two of them had minor spats for dominance, but Brandy rules the roost. They took a little while to adjust, but now they play together and lay on the couch next to each other on occassion.

I would love to have 4 myself!  I have 2 right now.  I did have 3 but my himalayan kitten died in December Sad   I want to get a 3rd one again as my other kitten (8 months old) seems to miss him.  Have you ever seen the quote "Cats are like potato chips, you can't have just one"? So true! They are addictive!

Hi and Welcome,
We have two, but as the others have mentioned, if you can care, have the room and time for another of these beautiful furbubs, then why not?

Hi! Welcome to the Site!! What the others said about time, money and space is so important.  But, if you have all those things then follow your heart.  We had 4 animals in the house for a long time.  I have two cats, one is a white Persian and I have an dog who is Half Black Lab and Half German Shepherd and the Late Phantom who was Half Black Lab, Half Husky.  They all got along fine together.  Cheesy  Cheesy  Cheesy  Linda
