They’ll always have a buddy!
Do you work outside of your home most of the day? Kittens need stimulation and exercise to ensure they don’t get into as much mischief and will help each other get out that kitten energy while you’re out. Exercised and active kittens are always better than lazy and bored kittens! Two kittens will entertain themselves and enrich their lives. We love it when adopters pick sibling pairs for adoption, but most young kittens are fine even with an unrelated buddy.
A kitten may drive an older cat bananas!
A younger kitten may be stressful for an older feline since they’re usually looking for a playmate, whether your older cat likes it or not. But having two kittens with similar energy levels would alleviate your older cat from putting up with their new younger sibling. And that means less stress and anxiety for the whole family.
Kittens use other felines to teach them how to “cat”!
Have you ever seen two kittens curled up together in a cuddle puddle? How about two kittens grooming each other after a meal? Kittens learn through example, so if they have a buddy, they’ll always have a friend that teaches them how to “cat”.
Adopting two kittens isn’t much more expensive than adopting one!
Aside from a higher adoption fee and the cost of vet care, two kittens isn’t that much more than a single kitten. The pair will be able to share supplies like litter boxes, food bowls, toys, beds, and more. You’ll also have to make space in your heart for two kittens, but we find that cost is worth it!
You’ll be saving two lives instead of one!
Isn’t that the best reason of all?
