Introducing your new cat to your home can be very stressful not only on you, but also the cat. Stress levels can become more elevated if there are other animals or small kids involved. Introducing your new feline friend to your home and pets can take plenty of time and patience, as cats tend to be territorial. Placing two cats into one environment without proper consideration of their position in the home is asking for trouble. However, with a carefully planned introduction, cats can ease into accepting each other and become lifelong pals. Here is a guide on how to introduce your cat to its new home. FIGO Pet Insurance created the following slideshow on cat introductions and they have granted Kitty in NY permission to share it with their readers.
