    Introductions to Other Cats and Household Pets

    Introducing a new cat to an incumbent feline requires patience and time. There's no way of anticipating how long it will take for them to accept one another and hopefully become friends. A lot has to do with the age and sex of the new arrival and, needless to say, with the personalities of the cats in question. As previously mentioned, it's often a good idea to initially keep the new arrival separate from your other cat as part of adjusting to a new home. Sometimes, you may have to keep them separated for a month. It's all going to depend on how accommodating your incumbent feline is going to be. And remember, even when you are well past the introduction stage, it's not a good idea to leave the newcomer alone and unsupervised with other animals in a household. Place them in different parts of the house for the duration of your absence. Make this a household rule, and make sure all family members remember.
