|It will really depend on the number of cats, spots, and so forth. It's really a crapshoot, mostly.
Boris was an only cat, and the king of his tiny apartment. When Gracie came along, he stopped eating for a bit. He needed reassurance that he would be the boss, and he got it from the humans, so things got better quickly. I'd say that successfully integrating a new cat depends on how much reassurance you can give the existing cats that they are loved and are first in line in your heart.
We got Gracie while I was off for the summer (long story), but nowadays I would not dream of adding one more cat, since I barely get to spend a couple of hours with both of mine combined, and they're both people oriented. Don't get me wrong, they love and treasure each other, but sometimes only human company will do for both of them.
