She's a witch,The good thing about having two devils is that their devil-ish energy will mainly be focused on themselves and not on you. Lonely kitten will want to bite your hands, attack your feet etc. You will not keep up with a small kitten, even comparing to most puppies they have way more energy. And since most kittens in the US are separated from their families way too early, having two kittens is crucial imo to ensure they have the least behavioral problems possible. And it's important to have cats that know how to play nicely if you're going to have a human baby around.
Most often than not, two kittens are less work than one. But I also know it's counter intuitive and I understand your wife reservation.

>>two devils is that their devil-ish energy
I love to watch a bunch kittens playing. I often can sense their thought atmospheres, especially when they are unaware that I am watching. One can walk in a actually feel their thought-pressure as they play. Its amazing.
>> Lonely kitten...
Exactly. A very selfish and cruel thing to do, in my opinion.
>>...most kittens in the US are separated from their families way too early,
Sadly, so true. I had opportunity to socialize an entire community of kittens reared in their families. The difference in their behaviors as adult kitties is so different from kittens seperated too early from their mommy kitties. Its not just their mommy either, as there is an actual community, a pecking order, ways of hunting, ways of behavior, they have a kitty cultural society. Of course most Humans don't give a hoot, as it doesn't fit their ideas of how things are or how it fits their agendas.
