It's funny you mention asking him, because I have, and he's been silent about 
the whole thing.  Not a stony silence, just a musing things over..."I will 
answer when I am ready, human!' ;)  The outside entrance, thru which we have 
always come and gone, has frozen shut with the cold, so we have to go to see 
him thru the house.  He's caught glimpses of the 'others' and was curious, ran 
to door, no hissing, fear, he seemed excited, and then started his drooly 
purr.  I will let you know when he gives his answer :)

Consider what you would want if you were Whimsy.  I don't know about another 
version but would you rather have a buddy even if your life was a little 
shorter?  I can't answer that for you.  I can tell you quality of life is very 
important to me and my family--both 2 legged and 4 legged.

If I were considering a partner, I would probably look for a female (spayed) 
and maybe younger but who knows????  Whimsy may have other ideas.  For reasons 
unknown, I have been blessed with animals who accepted each other.  It hasn't 
mattered whether they were dogs or cats......I have been blessed.  Follow your 
heart and ask your cat.
