Gemini talked a little about why the Woman wanted another cat. When we had Georgia, while neither Gemini nor I was friendly we weren’t as akitish. Sometimes strangers would see a tabby tail from a distance and I would walk around just our of reach. Now you see a Siamese from a great distance (or not at all) and you never see a puffy cat. Georgia was a very calming influence. It is getting so that we do not even want the Male to feed us. When he does, we sit on the Woman and ignore him–this would never have happeend with Georgia. The Woman is hoping that an older calm and brave cat will pull us out of our shells a little so we are not quite so tightly bonded just to her. That way when she is gone on vacation (and the Male likes LONG vacations) we will get attention from the pet sitter (at least I will) and won’t be so spooky. Also, we will actually allow the Male to feed us!
Alas the Woman couldn’t go last night because there were no adoption counselors there. They won’t have anyone until Friday but the Male is usually not home early on Friday so they probably won’t get to meet her until next Saturday (assuming someone doesn’t adopt her right away).
Good luck to them I think.
