We're looking at adopting another kitty. Our old guy is coming up on 15 and he's lonely. His littermate died Christmas of 2009 and he lost two other members of his kitty cat family in May and October of 2009. He also went through us losing our dog Josie, adding our dog Toby and the big addition of our daughter, all in 2010. He tries to cuddle and snuggle with the dog, me, my SO and the kid. I just feel bad for him. He spent the majority of his life with another cat.
He's declawed (he came to me that way) and I'm wondering if that's going to be an issue. Since we want to adopt an older kitty (not old, just not a kitten) do we need to look for a declawed kitty? I know the dog and kid are used to having a kitty that can't claw them, but I'm worried for my kitty. Suggestions??
Also, our vet says our kitty is very healthy and we should plan on having him around for a while.
