- Kittens are curious and crave constant stimulation.
- A bored kitten will entertain itself by chewing on plants or electrical cords, climbing drapes and furniture, unrolling toilet paper, etc.
Although two kittens may still perform some of this behavior having a sibling to tumble around and play with, will limit the damage.
- Kittens are very active at night.
- A single kitten will keep you awake with constant jumping, pouncing and other forms of play.
- Two kittens will play with each other until they finally tire and fall asleep.
They are more likely to let you get the beauty sleep you need.
- Every Kitten needs to interact with its own kind
- Kittens who are able to remain with one of their litter mates or a similarly-aged companion, tend to be healthier and happier,
and in the long run, better socialized pets than those who are isolated from others of their kind at an early age.
- Kittens bite and wrestle with one another
- It is normal for two kittens to bite and wrestle together. A kitten with no siblings, will bite and wrestle you, a painful and unwanted behavior. You will end up with an adult cat who has developed very bad habits of biting and scratching as “play.” Kittens with siblings will naturally grow out of this baby behavior.
- Why do I need to adopt two kittens if I already have an adult cat?
A kitten has boundless energy and will want to run and play constantly, unlike an older cat who will play in short bursts and sleep the rest of the time. An older cat will be irritated that a kitten will not stop bothering him when he is ready to nap and a kitten will be frustrated that the older cat will not play all day. You will have two unhappy cats. Luckily, this can be avoided by adopting a pair of kittens, they will interact with the older cat but leave him time to nap too.
- Do you have the time needed to constantly entertain a kitten?
- Trying to keep one kitten occupied, stimulated, happy and safe while still going about the business of everyday life is practically impossible.
A pair of kittens will still interact with you but will keep each other occupied while you are busy with your every day tasks.
- Mother Nature created kittens in litters! Every kitten deserves to have a sibling of similar age, adopt a pair of kittens today.
