Introducing myself

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello all! I just joined this community last week.

In my feline family is ...

Jade: 9 year old, female, black domestic shorthair

Lola: 12 week old, female, silver Egyptian Mau

In 2006 I lost my beloved Siamese boys Ping & Tyler. Littermates born in 1989, it was a very tragic loss for our family. For a while we weren't so sure we wanted to get a new kitten as the pain from losing our boys was too raw. We slowly researched breeds, fell in love with a breed and a breeder and just welcomed home Lola on July 20th. Much to my dismay I should have spent MORE time researching introduction tactics so that is what we are dealing with now.

Welcome here at TCS!
I hope the introduction problems are solved soon...and I`m so glad you decided to adopt again.
I do understand the need to have some time to grieve though. I`ve been there too, as most of us at TCS have been at one time or another. I know it`s hard...but your new furbabies will find ""in your heart.

Hey and Welcome to the site!

I'm so sorry to hear about your Siamese! I have a Himalayan named Moonlight, so you could say he's half Siamese.

Your cats sound adorable! Please post pics on the fur pics forums for us to admire.

Talk to you later!

Welcome to TCS . I only have one kitten, but there are a TON of posts on here about introducing kittens, and starting over if they weren't introduced successfully the first time. I hope you like it here! Its been really helpful for me and taking care of my new kitten.

I've read that it can be a good idea to keep them separated for the first week, but only barely, like by a door or something so that they can still smell each other. After some time you can open the doors for a while each day to allow them to see each other. that might work. Then again, if Jade is anything like my old cat Twiggy, she'll never like a newcomer. Other cats learned very quickly to give her a wide path!
