    I don't have a good picture of the Turtle though. Interesting note btw. The Rabbit is house broken, only goes to the potty in it's cage, otherwise it has free run of the room it lives in.

    we currently have 1 dog and 1 cat, my wife said when the dog goes that we should get 2 cats, so they can keep each other company.

    my question is does 2 cats keep each other company or do they nag owners more for attention?

    Depends, if the cats get along well then typically having more than one works out well, they will keep each other company, groom each other, snuggle with each other etc. But you'll still have to give them attention.

    Aye it depends on the pets, no matter if they are cats or dogs. When we had 3 dogs and 2 cats for nearly 14 yrs. of them all being together, it was very peculiar to see their behaviors after one by one they each passed away.
    All 5 of them all got along quite well together.

    When one by one, our 14 yr. old dogs passed away, the one male cat was totally sad
    not to have his dog friends with him any longer. Course that 1 cat, thought he was a dog, I think !

    And our 2nd cat of the 5-some that we had, being the only one of them left remaining alive, about starved her self to death, as if in some, pet perma mourning. :(

    Your wife may hope to get another cat, after ye dog passes, but if the 2 have formed a bond over their years of being together in your house, the survivor pet may not accept any other critter, into the *family* nor befriend them.

    Sometimes I think, too, [if a feline and canine] did get along for some yrs. it may be, even harder then perhaps, to bring in some newb pet, into the family, even if they are the same species. And animals do seem to miss or *mourn* the loss of their buddy when one of em passes away.

    Now we are down to just 2 newer yet aging dogs, no matter that they keep each other company, like any pets, feline or canine they still want/need their human affection, attention and treats. :) Cats only appear to need less of our attentions, but when they want it, there ya go stuck with a purring furball demanding human attentions or they may just opt to dig their feline claws into your lap sayin...LOVE ME OR YA LOOSE YOUR FACE NOW ! lol Then off they go, ignoring us like we humans are ...beneath them.

    Your rescue story reminded me of one lil kitten who's life I did manage to save yrs. ago.
    I worked as night auditor for Comfort Inns and Suites back then.
    A wild feline had given birth, to a litter of kitties, in our hotel area pool's sorta garden area.
    The owner of the hotel kept tryin to get them, to get them out of there, cuz it was a busy area traffic wise and well he wasn't fond of cats anyhow. :)
    Unfortunately one night on my shift, the mother cat opted to begin training her litter to hunt.
    Course her concept of finding food for them all, was to cross the busy street to the McDonald's dumpsters
    full of customers unchewed burgers and filets of fish. It was my unfortunate shift that enabled me to see,
    the horror of one mother cat and 5 of her 6 kittens get run over by a car that night. GOD I will never forget that night.
    But one lil kitten of hers for some reason, did not follow her mother cat and siblings that night.
    I heard this crying from the parking lot outside, as that horrid event had happened, there was one tiny lil kitten all alone crying meowing, and I went out there to try to find the survivor.

    I found her, wild as can be about scratched my eyes out to even try to pick her up to save her.
    I got a box, put her in it and took her into the hotel lobby. The owner come at 7am and did a WTF ?
    I told him what happened to the rest and that, sorry his hotel lobby was with an animal atm but I was gonna take her home and try to make her tame and save her life.

    Hubby thought this is NOT gonna work we had 3 dogs and one cat at the time, they would not accept that stray. Took em a half a year to even like her, but once they all did, it worked out fantastically.

    So here is a photo of the kitten I named: *Precious*

    She wasnt much to look at per say, but I loved her anyhow & saved her tiny precious lil life from that horrible night she lost her mother and siblings. She got along so well finally in the end with our 3 dogs and 1 cat we had at that time, that after ours all passed away but her, we lost her anyhow, she refused to eat ever again.
    But we managed to give her life several more years of happiness till she lost the only 2nd animal family she had known .. of our other pets. We had asked the vets, animal behaviorists etc. anything we could to try to get her to eat again after she was once again the sole survivor, after her 2nd family of pets, had all passed away due to just old age. The vets said, nothing we could do, sadly, animals too, may go into mourning, like some humans do, and just decide they do not want to eat to go on living any longer without their *mates* or friends.

    That lil cat, became the *seeing eye* cat for our terripoo that had gone nearly blind after yrs. of living, and our terripoo, Precious would lead down the hallway and around the house, as if leading the blind. It was unbelievable the bonds/trust, they & she had made with our 3 dogs and one cat, we had brung her life, into. Once her other 2nd *pet family* was gone, she just did not want to go on living or eating anymore. :( Didnt seem to matter she still had us humans that loved her too.

    I still think of her yrs. later one lil 'precious dumpling' a life I did manage to save, once upon a time. Actually most of the pets we have ever owned even pure breeds, were about all rescue animals lost or abandoned like trash by whomever had em first. :( We took em all in over the years.

    *have to add our male cat had his own litter box, she had hers.
    I was lucky to get a wild ferral cat like she had been, to even become trained to USE a litter box.

    But there be times he would use hers just to annoy her.
    She would look at me all upset as if to say "OMG that male, he peed on my toilet seat ! "

    I would have to quickly change HER litter box, cuz she refused to use her's, if HE defiled it ! lol

    If you are going to get a second cat to keep the first company when the dog is gone, I would do it now. That way the cats can bond so when the dog is gone, the first one won't be so miserable. It is harder for any animal to adjust to the death of a pet and the introduction of a new one at the same time. It will adjust better if the cats already have bonded and built some sort of companionship so it won't take the passing of your dog quite so hard. It's not a guarantee but will go a long way to keep that from happening.
