Video advice on how to introduce a new cat into the home and some tips and tricks to making the experience easy for everyone:

 

Preparing for a new cat

Some preparation beforehand will help with the experience and help your new cat or new kitten feel safe and secure in their new house. 

Firstly make sure one room has all of the resources that a cat needs such as a bed, water, food, litter tray, scratching post and of course, Feliway. Preferably plug in the Feliway Diffuser 24 hours before introducing the new cat or new kitten.

Allowing the cat to adjust to its new surroundings in this room first helps them build their confidence before they start to investigate elsewhere. It is advised that you leave the Feliway Diffuser plugged in and switched on for the first month to help your new cat or new kitten to settle in.
