Having Two Cats
Cats in bonded pairs are often happier, healthier and more well-behaved than a single cat that rules the roost. Here’s why you might want to consider getting two instead of one.
Bonded pairs are common in nearly all animals, and cats are no exception. In fact, you’ll often find that there are more bonded pairs of cats in homes, animal shelters and rescues than any other kind of pet.
If you’re thinking of adopting a cat or kitten, your perfect match could come with a forever friend. Before you say no to having multiple cats in your household, consider some benefits to adopting the two together.
Cats that have a playmate tend to be more socially well-adjusted and avoid behavior problems like shyness, biting, hissing, being frightened and hiding in the company of people they don’t know.
Cats need stimulation during the day like humans. Studies have shown that some animals left alone most of the day in the house, have brains that weigh up to 25% less than those that live in the street.
Cats are much less likely to gain weight due to the lack of movement, and to suffer related illnesses.
They are less likely to ruin furniture out of boredom.
The workload to care for two cats remains relatively the same.
If you must work long hours or travel for a couple of days, two or more cats keep each other company and are more tranquil during your absence.
It’s more likely that people bring back an adopted cat due to behavior problems when only one has been adopted, rather than two.
Your cat will remain more playful and youthful into his or her later years with a companion.
You don’t need more space for a second cat.
