Should I get another cat?
My kitten disappeared just as I was getting it trained as a lap kitty.

My existing cat (female) only manages lap kitty for about five minutes per day - and she picks the 5 minutes.

I was thinking of going to the pound and auditioning cats until I find a for-sure lap kitty.

The existing cat is gonna be pissed, of course, but is she going to teach the new cat all her bad habits?

1. Two cats are easier than one. Get another cat.
However, first let's clear up the little question about your disappearing kitten. If the circumstances that caused your kitten to disappear (lying-swine boyfriend, open door, coyotes in the neighborhood) are still in play, perhaps you want to make sure the environment is kitten safe first.

2. Why do you want another cat?
Did you lose your oven mitt or something? :D

I love cats. We have a cute not-so-little Maine Coon. He's a doll.

and get a male-they tend to be comfortable as "lap cats" far more often than females (my Oberon, a large Maine Coon, INSISTS that he's a lap cat!)

Try here: www.petfinder.com

On edit: I used suggestions on a Humane society web page for introducing a new cat (I think that's what I Googled)to an existing pet. The happy results are below :-)
