Advice on how to introduce other cat

Cats are one of the most popular pets on the planet, no investigation has been conducted on this subject. More than half the families in the United States own cats and dogs. Despite the fact that felines are very expensive creatures, cats’ allergies are one of the most common types of sensitivity.

In case you try to introduce small cats, the introduction procedure may be short and will only last 10 to 15 days. How well the cats get to know each other depends on their behaviour and character. When you introduce another cat to your current cat, you should always give him/her a lot of affection and consideration. This way, your feline will have a feeling of security and will realize that he is not competing with your new cat for friendship.

                                 Isolate the new cat

When you bring your new cat home, you must give it access to a protected room until you have wrapped it up to the felines. Your protected room can be any small room in your home, such as a bathroom or visiting room. The key is to use a room that your current cat does not enter. In this room, you should leave your new cat a scratching post, bed, water plate, litter box and bowl.

Try not to interfere with the gathering

Right from the start, your current cat may shout and whistle when she stays at the entrance, trying to tell the other cat that she has no room. When this happens, you should ignore it, as pushing your feline away for behaviour will only exacerbate the problems. Sooner or later, the main cat will start to act smoothly when it gets close to the new cat's entrance. As he begins to calm down, you should pet him and applaud him to encourage him.

When your first cat begins to walk past the entrance of your new cat without shouting or whistling, you can begin to get to know him or her. Ideally, you should get them used to each other's scent. You can start letting them eat from a similar bowl, although you will have to deal with them at different intervals from the start. This way, the scent of each cat will be available in the bowl, and each cat will smell the aroma when it eats its food.

Once both felines have become accustomed to the scent, you can start taking care of them closer together. To do this, you should keep your new cat in the protected room with the entrance closed, and your first cat on the other side of the entrance with its food dish. This time, feed both cats simultaneously. After doing this several times, they should start eating without whistling or growling. Now they are ready to get acquainted.

 Preparing for the newcomer

When you present them to each other in a similar room, you should expect some sniffing and whistling. Although they are used to each other's scent, your first feline will be somewhat humiliated by your new cat's proximity to his domain. From the very beginning, you should play with both of them, so that they can feel and welcome each other in their own way. If they start to fight, you should isolate them and give them some time.

                           Setting up cohabitation 

It may take some investment for them to acclimatize to each other, but once they do, they will become deeply rooted companions. Cats like to be friendly, although this can be a little awkward at first, especially for your first feline. Cats can be exceptionally sociable, especially if you have a cat around. If you can get them used to each other at the right time, it will be much easier to add future felines to your household.
