Just call me gullible and never at home much. I have taken on a new cat. My older cat (just a year and a half old, named Shug Avery) has a new housemate--a black short hair male. I have yet to name it because I can't remember any of the men's names on The Color Purple. Now Shug Avery won't be so lonely. I have never had a male and a female cat. Are the males usually as aggessive (fighting wise) to the females as the females are to each other?
