The Strays Walks In.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone.

After the passing of my Kitty Samba not too long ago(1 months just under)
Me and my Partner talked about getting another cat but decided against it.
Anyway today was a normal we have been putting our Xmas decs up and as we went outside to look at the window lights the woman in the apartment next door called us over.....

She told us that she had found a 4-5 month old kitten, female and black n white.
and wonderd if we would be willing to look after her...
Anyway as soon as we saw her we fell in love she is SO CUTE!
Now we took her into our Bathroom and srapyed her with Frontline Spot On flea control.
We have fed her and give her water cause shes a lil on the thin side.
Anyway we are gonna get her a appointment at VET within next few days and my mum who is a vey is coming tommrow to have a peek at her.

Now we have shown her our kitten Gizmo whos same size as her and she was happy to see him and Gizmo was fine too.

Simba our oldest(2 yrs) is hissing and growing alot. Even when my Partner strokes him he is doing it even tho the Girls in Bathroom.
Any idea why? Could it be the smell of flea stuff and adjusting to the lil girl?

We decided to call her Tinsel lol for Xmas =D

Any advice on brining a new cat in especialy male to female would be GREAT!

THANK YOU so much for adopting Tinsel and welcome to her to TCS! Generally, a newcomer is isolated in one room with all essentials for a week or two, opening adjoining doors so your cats and Tinsel can sniff scents and see one another from a distance; gradually the time is increased, and slowly, they are allowed into the same room to get to know one another, separating them if they actually get physical, until, over time, they get to know and accept one another. A certain amount of hissing, growling, and even posturing is normal; physical fighting that gets out of hand is NOT, and may require a squirt from a sprayer filled with water and some sharp, "NO NO!"'s, and separation again. Be patient and loving, and with time, they will hopefully become best friends, playing, eating, lounging, grooming, and sleeping together. Keep us posted, and GOOD LUCK!
