    I am new to this site, and if i posted in wrong section please excuse me. I am moving into a new apartment with my fiance and was considering a new kitten. The previous cat I had raised from kitten (12 years) passed away a year ago and was a big part of my life every time I got home from work. I am full time and my fiance is part time. I am worried about the kitten becoming lonely through some parts of the day. Are there breeds that have less separation anxiety? I was interested in a Scottish fold/British short hair mix or a Siamese .Please advise if you have any suggestions to keep a new kitten occupied and not so lonely. Any suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated.

    Here is Lionel, my old friend

    Hello and welcome to TCS. :wave2: Condolences on the loss of Lionel. :alright: He was a super handsome boy. RIP sweetie. :angel: If you are interested, we have a Crossing the Bridge forum where you could write a tribute to Lionel.

    About a new kitten being lonely, is getting 2 kittens an option?

    Kittens do very well in pairs, do you think you would be able to adopt two kittens together? If you go to your shelter they will no doubt have plenty of siblings and bonded pairs looking for a new home. They will keep each other company while you are out, so you won't need to worry about them being lonely.

    They quite often have pedigree mixes or pointed kittens, that look a lot like Siamese, and will offer a cheaper adoption fee if you can take two cats.

    I'm sorry about Lionel, he looks like a sweetheart.

    Definitely a pair. Kittens should come that way :) The best gift I ever got for my Little Bit was another kitten, Bassie, who just happened to come along at approximately the same time.

    Lionel was such a handsome fella. I am sorry for your loss.

    Kittens have unlimited energy and as mentioned above, would be better in pairs. I have a scottish fold kitten right now who is a monkey/kangaroo/cat all in one with the speed of a cheetah, and stalks/hounds/pesters my two adult cats endlessly. I wish I adopted another one his age but we already have the max limit of cats in the house (for now! :biggrin: )

    BTW, welcome to TCS! :hellosmiley:
