The more furry friends you have, the happier you are right? RIGHT?! At the risk (or honor) of sounding like an obsessive cat lady, the best way to heal that hole in your heart is to bring home another little kitty for your first beloved catto. Watching that cat duo doing their own cute goofy stuff will without a doubt soothe your tired soul. And if you’re not already a proud floof owner, we’re here to take your fantasies to the next level with double the feline fun!
You know what? You don’t even have to take our word for it! We’ve collected proof (in 50 pictures no less) that two cats will boost your obsessions to the next level. If you and your cat are the only decision-makers, then what are you waiting for? But you may have some convincing to do if your parents, partner, or roommate have their doubts. All you have to do is forward this article to them and we’re sure they’ll be converts in no time!
We wish it was all rainbows and butterflies though. To share the flip side of this double-cat utopia, it’s important for you to make an informed decision. Some cats may not appreciate the company and would rather be the only feline ruling your heart. PDSA vet Anna Ewers Clark sheds some light on this issue: “Although it can be tempting to think that your cat might benefit from getting another feline friend, quite the opposite could be true! Introducing a new, unrelated cat to an existing cat’s territory can actually be very stressful for them both, so think very carefully before getting ‘company’ for your cat.”
For now, let’s just focus on the positives though shall we? Scroll through these posts to reignite your love for the cutest floofballs in all the land. It’s time to sit back, relax and show some love for these gorgeous kitties. I mean how can you refuse?

3. Unlimited floof love inside and out :’)
4. Abolish bath time forever!
5. Nothing greater than a mama’s love
As these pics show, some floofs love living together in harmony with each other! A vet from the PSDA, Anna says “Siblings from the same litter, or kittens that have grown up together can get along quite well and enjoy each other’s company”. Something to keep in mind when you consider getting a second (or third or fourth) catto to grow your happy family!

10. Food coma naps be like
So how can you tell that your feline friend gets along with the new kitty? Anna says: “Signs your cats get along include grooming each other, snoozing together, touching noses, and rubbing their heads together. They will also like to do things together, like relaxing in the garden or playing together, and may like to have friendly play-fights”. Adorable right?

15. Staging a coup no doubt!
So how should you differentiate between play-fights and anger-fights? Anna says: “If the fighting is continuous, you hear hissing, their ears are back and flat to their head, their backs are arched or you see claws orbiting, it’s likely this isn’t just a play-fight. Break it up by making a loud noise or placing a physical barrier between them—don’t use your hands though!” You’ll know when your favourite floofs are enjoying their little games when their play fights occur at intervals, and the feline’s ears are stretched forward.
16. NEVER GROW UP

20. Posing for a selfie
While cats may enjoy the company, they’ll definitely want some space once in a while. Anna says: “Always make sure they have separate food and water bowls, and spread these out so they can eat separately.” If you notice some aggressive behaviour like growling or aggression, this may be a sign that your furry friend needs some alone time. Give your floofs the individual love and attention that they deserve and try to keep their beds, eating bowls, and litter tray separate!

25. Camera flash got them like…
Ingrid Johnson, a cat behaviorist explains a little bit about their social preferences: “They naturally live in small groups called colonies. Cats are solitary hunters, but not a solitary species”. The most important takeaway from this is the importance of balance for your beautiful kitties! While they like to socialise as a species, when their social batteries run out, they’ll need some time on their own so make sure you give them that!

30. When your mom brings in dessert
When your catto has a playmate, both of them will learn how to adjust to each other if given the balance that they require. This company will make them less aggressive, more confident, and maybe a little more extroverted too.
If your feline friend is left alone during their younger years, they may struggle to react well to other cats later on and the likelihood of stress and aggression may increase. Strike that perfect balance for best results!

35. Welcome to the dark side, we have catnip.
Additionally, when our animal babies have other pets to share playtime with, they’ll end up being far more agile and active. This results in happy, healthy cats. Even though we love our chunky babies, being smaller in size definitely has its health benefits. When your catto has a furry friend of their own, they’ll keep themselves more entertained, cause less destruction and won’t bother you so much when you’re in the middle of something.
