Introducing A New Kitten
courtesy of jambox998
- Keep the kitten in a separate room, like the bath room, for about two weeks.
- A few days of seperation, switch rooms for a little while to let them explore each others space and learn the new smells. It also gives the kitten a chance to get acquainted with the rest of the house.
- After two weeks, bring the kitten out and hold him/her for a few minutes, several times a day every day, and let the other cat investigate. But don’t rush things.
- Watch how they get along. If they seem ok together, let the kitten loose to see how they relate to each other. If any one of them shows any aggression or is frightened , keep them separated for a little longer and repeat the process until they get use to each other.
Be patient and let them get use to each other on their own terms.
So... what do you think? Please leave me a comment.
