Best combination for kittens..

Hi all

Hoping to re-home a kitten or two in the next few weeks.

Going to sanctuary today to have a look; my dear old Gianfranco died three months ago and it's now time to bring some fluffy love back to my home.

I work full time but I'm in and out of my house at regular intervals during the day, so not too concerned about loneliness. Plus Francocat slept a lot.  but I'm thinking of getting two kittens as company for each other.

Obviously they will be neutered. But is there a good combination? Male and female? Two males or two females?

Thank you

I really wouldn't get kittens if you work full time. Sorry. I'm not sure many places will want you to have baby cats in this situation. Lots of very young adult cats in shelters. Their temperaments will also be clearer as adults.

I have no problem in re-homing an older cat.

I'd ideally love an older cat to see out its final years, so I'm not ruling anything out but I think I'd like two for company

I asked this same question about six years ago as we were trying to choose two kittens from an abandoned litter. In the end we got two brothers. They are inseparable, groom each other and choose to sleep cuddled up in the same bed, they have never fought with each other. The only time there was a near spat was when one came round a corner quickly and frightened the other on. I'm so pleased we decided to get two rather than a single kitten.
