Introducing a New Cat to Your Other Pets


Bringing a new cat into your home isn’t as simple as letting it loose with your other furry friends — that’s a good way to end up with furballs on your floors. It’s important to introduce your newest family member in a way that ensures a good relationship between all the animals under your roof.

Introducing your pets should be a slow process for best results. It can take days — or even weeks — for a new cat to become ready to meet their new friends. Different tricks can be required for introducing your new cat to other cats or dogs, but either way, it’s possible to have your pets becoming friends before too long.

If you have another cat

In a home with other cats, you should take several precautions, as cats are territorial animals that mark their areas with their scent.

Make sure you have a designated room for the new cat. This room should include their food, water, litter box, and toys. You should also include things like blankets and cat beds so your cat can spread their scent around their new home and become comfortable.

Don’t let your cats see each other as you bring the new cat into your home. Your cat will suspect they’re not alone from the scent of your other cat. Preventing visual contact is a good way to avoid yowling and fights — and upsetting both cats.
