I know someone who has a cat who they're really horrible to (lock it out the house most the time, occasional kick etc) and they don't want it anymore as they were never really keen on cats and this particular cat is apparently a bit bitey with the children (though I don't know how the children handle the cat so I don't know what precedes the biting instances) They have said I can have it if I want it and I do feel a huge obligation to take it as I hate hate hate the idea of this poor little cat being locked out in the rain, and all the rest! However I have a 15 year old mardy pants cat already and I just know this will really piss her off and I feel guilty as I have a responsibility to her not to make her life miserable.
If I don't take the cat she will probably go to an animal shelter but once they find out she is bitey I can't see anyone wanting her and I'm worried she might get put down, does this happen?
Do you think its possible for an old mardy cat to accept a new one in the house or will it all be flying fur from now on?
Any advice really gratefully received!
