Now that you have decided to adopt two kittens – YAY! Or at least maybe you are REALLY considering adopting two kittens, rather than only a single kitten.
Here’s a final word on
why you should adopt two kittens: reason three
As mentioned in previous “why you should adopt two kittens: reason one, and reason two” posts, kittens in a shelter are often orphaned. For those kittens without a mother, a sibling, or a substitute shelter pal, become very important to the development and growth of kittens. Those relationships between two kittens are a vital source for them to learn and experience life long skills.
- Two kittens together learn how to communicate with each other
- Two kittens together learn how to interpret signals from each other
- Two kittens together learn about affection
- Two kittens learn about bonding
These are all behaviors applicable to our relationship with our cats, and are qualities we desire to share and experience with our cats.
Plus – a pair of kittens are twice the love!
