Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear about your loss. It is never easy to have to let a pet go. In the end when that decision is made, it is made for them and not for you. As far as getting another cat / kitten in the home for a housemate, honestly now is probably the best time for it. Younger kittens adapt very readily to new additions to the house. As far as the possible adopted cat / kitten and the current kitten getting along, honestly it varies from situation to situation. More than likely though with time, they would be able to get along well. As far as the current sneezing / conjunctivitis that the younger kitten has now, I wouldn't be overly worried about this. The kitten most likely is fighting off an upper respiratory infection that pretty much all other cats have been exposed too. It may cause a flare up with the new pet, but it wouldn't be anything overly worried about being that bad. I always recommend FELV and FIV testing all cats / kittens 3 months and older to see what there status is.
