How To Introduce Your New Cat To The Other Pets

Cats are territorial by nature. You can be sure that they might not take kindly to other cats in the household. Thus, you should not be hasty in introducing your new cat to the other resident cats in the household. Do it gradually since it will take weeks or months before they get used to each other’s presence.

If you have a pet dog, you might want to wait for a while before letting him meet the new cat. And when you do the introduction, at least put the dog on a leash so you can manage his interaction with the kitty. Give an escape route for the cat if she is uncomfortable with the dog’s presence. You can even install a baby gate to manage interaction among your pets.

On the other hand, you have to keep your smaller pets safe and secure from the new cat. Birds and rodents are natural prey for cats, so you should consider if the cat can access their enclosure in the first place. You don’t want the cat to be aroused nor do the small pets feel stressed.

If you have any concerns about your pet’s health and/or behavior, set an appointment with your animal clinic Pembroke Pines, FL.
