Adopting a cat or kitten is always an exciting time. You want them to have the best possible start.
Video advice on how to introduce a new cat into the home and some tips and tricks for making the experience easy for everyone:
Provide a secure area (away from other cats or animals in the house) with a bed, water, food, litter tray, scratching post and of course Feliway® pheromones.
If you can, plug in the Feliway® diffuser 24 hours before acquiring the new cat or new kitten.
Allowing the cat to adjust to its new surroundings in this room first helps it build confidence before it starts to investigate elsewhere.
Slowly introduce your cat to other animals in the house, but always allow the new cat to retreat to a safe, isolated place for privacy.
Keep a Feliway® diffuser plugged in for at least a month for best results.
