They are all so different and sometimes our expectations have something to do with their actions/reactions. I have been blessed by friends that get along, even if it takes a while for them to work things out. Ebony and Mitu worked it out and they worked it out with Mai Mai and Allie (two dogs who came alone separately and who worked things out themselves). Kitty worked ti out with Dixie. Ebony and Mi Tu worked it out with Sandy (another dog). All of us slept in the same bed and they lived in peace. Now Copper and Thomas (male cats) are working it out with Bob (a dog). Expectations have a lot to do with adjustments in MHO. I have brought dogs in to care for them while their Persons was vacationing worked out. Everything and everyone is different and I really believe that the beliefs of the people involved have a lot to do with adjustments. If we think it won't work..........well, it won't.

I recently saw a very sweet movie called "The Answer Man." I highly recommend it. In it, the lead female character said three things that she lives by that I
totally love.

1)  Never take advice from someone you wouldn't switch places with.
2)  Try not to do anything you can't take back.
3)  Something is what it is... and it's not something else.

#3 is how I approach cat relationships, or for that matter humans too. It's personalities and chemistry. Nothing more. And thank God for that. It makes
life joyfully interesting. :)

Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] how to know if your "only" needs a friend?

I think it depends on the cat, I have knowns very sweet and friendly female cats

who like being with other cats, I know some others on here made genralizations about female cats, but I wouldn't do that, I think it really depends on the cat,

jsut like I don't liek to generalize about people.
