Last month, our cat had a litter of 5 kittens
. We are planning to keep one of the kittens, but it is very hard to make a choice on which one.
There are four males and one female. Given our cat is not really a lapcat (rather standoff-ish and rarely purring), we wanted to keep one that would become more so. The vet advised us to keep a male as they tend to be more lapcattish. But the female is all so curious about everything and interested about what we do. And one of the males looks exactly like his mom when she was small... and purrs very loudly!
So, in your experience, which sex would get along better with cat mommy? And would either of them really be more likely to be more of a lapcat?
Please, no scolding about not spaying our cat. We planned this cat pregnancy to give the mom a companion and she will be spayed next month. We also have plenty of good homes for the kittens.
