Introducing a New Cat into Your Home

When you are introducing a new cat into your home, taking the transition slowly is a good way to make your new friend comfortable— especially if you have other pets. Easing your pet into your home and into meeting other pets will make them feel safer. Easing them in their setting helps increase their confidence. A confident cat will be more at ease in other new situations, such as during cat grooming.

Watch this video for some advice on introducing a new cat to your home and existing pets. If your pets and your new cat have some experience with other animals through things like pet daycare and dog boarding, they are more likely to warm up to each other quickly. It’s a good idea to start your new cat out in an enclosed room so they can begin to feel confident in that space before slowly introducing the rest of your home and your other animals.
