Cats/new apartment 3 cats


My girlfriend and I are moving into a new apartment.  She has 2 adult cats (14 and 6) and I have 1 adult cat (13).  My cat has never met another cat and has never been out of my apartment.  How should we introduce them?

well it is never easy to get cats to like each other they are very independent and territorial creatures. If space is too small you may find that you have some problems but lets look on the bright side. if you can introduce your cats calmly, slowly over a period of a week and perhaps eve get them used to each others scent before you move then you will stand a better chance of having a harmonious family.

Here is my web page about how to introduce cats and also about cat moving home for your information. i hope helps.



best wishes
