As I mentioned last time, Happy Cat Month is divided into weeks this year. This week, it is all about having a multi-cat household! The Catalyst Council thinks that most cats would be happier having a roommate to hang out with.
Of course, there are right and wrong ways to introduce a new cat into your home. It needs to be done gradually, with lots of scent swapping, feeding meals on either side of a closed door, quick, supervised introductions and lots of treats. Sadly, this still does not guarantee that one cat won’t photo bomb another.
Plus, you need to make sure your home can comfortably fit more than one cat. Adding vertical space with cat trees and platforms is good. Also making sure there are quiet hiding spots in case one cat is having a bad day and the other wants to avoid her. So can I get permission to leave now?
I am not so sure I should be talking about multi-cat households.
