You are the parent of a fluffy, chubby fur baby and suddenly your heart whispers that it wants to have another one. It is completely natural and you should be absolutely ecstatic. I should know I’m a proud cat mom of two. This is the best decision you have made for your current cat especially if you are working long hours and your cat is alone for a longer period. However it is going to be a while before you experience the picture perfect moments of both of them cuddling and loving each other.
Introducing the new cat to your current cat will be an ordeal and you should prepare yourself accordingly. I have a list her to help you but the most important thing you need and that too in abundance is “Patrience”! The time period it take for your cats to be friendly varies according to their age, personality and some general unknown variables.
So, here is how you should go about introducing them.
After the first step let them smell each other in the confines of a crate or through a fence. Let them be familiar with each other before an in person introduction.
The time it takes for your cats to even get into the same room will have to be judged by you and you alone. Keep a close eye on their behaviours. It is not an exact science.
I hope the this has soothed some of your anxiety about introducing a new cat into your home. Remember that you know your feline the best. There is no fool proof method to introducing two cats, however it can be made easier with precaution and the right products.
