I live in a large one bedroom apartment with my boyfriend and one year old siamese little girl. This weekend we are getting a new addition...a 9 week old siamese boy. I have read that when introducing the resident cat to a new kitten they should be kept apart for about a week. I want this transition to be as easy as possible for both cats but I am unsure how to go about keeping them apart in a home with only 1 real "room". We have a living room area and then a bedroom area. I think if we keep our older cat couped up in only one room for an entire week she will go nuts. She sleeps in our bed every night so we can't shut her out of the bedroom...she will howl all night. I am really unsure how approach this introduction. Does anyone have any suggestions? Does anyone know of a quicker way of introducing them...i just don't think keeping them in separate rooma for a week is possible. Please help.
