I don't know if you remember my post from a while back regarding fostering a kitty but we did it! He's adorable! We're going on our first trip since picking him up next week and we're having trouble deciding where he should go. We have a choice between a dude with no cats (but with no cat experience) or a couple with one un-neutered (un-spayed?) female cat. Our foster kitty is a neutered male and we're wondering if there could be problems with the two kitties living together?

I think it depends on how temperamental the cats are. I personally would leave my kit cats with the dude with no cats, because I know mine are sensitive. It could be a learning experience to see if your cat and the other cat get along, but you'd have to make sure the couple would be ok with possible strife! Probably the worst that would happen is that one or both of the cats would hide the whole time you're gone.

I would pick no cats as well, because introducing cats can be a long, harrowing ordeal. Unless kitty has particular considerations (medicating, unusual behavioural issues) someone with no cat experience she manage just fine.

i'd pick the no cats, no cat experience option. i know my cats get extremely upset when they encounter strange cats - hiss and peas and yowling and attacking.

Can you get someone (maybe no-cat dude?) to house sit for you and look after the cat there? My kitty is a rescue and she would be terrified if we took her away from what she now knows as her forever home, but she is fine with house-sitters.
