When I adopted Henry (my tabby who is crowded in the back of the chair) 14 years ago I sensed that he was bored and lonely when I left for work each day so I adopted Buster as a kitten one year later. At first I thought it was a huge (pun intended due to Buster's 21 pound frame) mistake because they fought over chairs, my lap, my friend's laps, food and water bowls, and anything else worth (in their minds) squabbling about but the sweet moments like the one above made me realize I chose the right brother for Henry and I'm sure that Henry is thankful for Buster's companionship (and the squabbles) everyday!
I wonder --- did you adopt a furry companion for your first pet and if so how long did it take for the two to accept each other? Please share your stories! I'd love to read all about them!
