aw, I’m sorry. Don’t feel bad. Some cats have a hard time adjusting to another cat in the house after they’ve been alone for awhile. It’s nothing you did wrong or anything. I’m glad the other person was willing to take the cat back, and since she missed her, it sounds like in the end it’s working out for the best for everyone. Maybe you could try a younger kitten? Sometimes that works a bit better. I know when my sister in law got a new cat, their older cat did not like her very much at all. But after a bit of time, they settled in together and are best buds now. Only try it if you are able to return the kitten if it doesn’t work out though, or have someone else willing to take it. Anyway, sounds like you did the right thing, so cheer up 🙂

Its usually best to get multiple cats at one time… sometimes they adjust and sometimes they never do. My dad adopted a stray siamese and we already had two cats (this was when I was in HS). Well it has been 6 years and my persian precious is fine with the siamese (bugsy) but the other little tabby cat we had before the siamese came along STILL hates him… never got adjusted to him after 6 years.

its all in their personality. Some kitties are just meant to be “only kitties”.

I’m sorry though.. thats a bummer. I want another cat too but I’m terrified that our psycho cat would abuse it as well. I do think you are making the right decision for the cats well being and happiness though.
