Newby that need help!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone, I am new to the board. I posted this on the Cats S.O.S. but thought I would also post it here. I actually joined because I need to find a home for my Himalayan and I need to know that she is going to a home that knows how to take care of her. I figured the best place is a forum that is about cats. I am very sad to have to find her another home but I don't know what else to do. I adopted her 2 months ago, I also have a persian that is 4 years old, since she had grown up around another cat I thought they would get along. Well, they do not get along and I have tried everything. My persian is hiding all the time and not using her litter box, I have two litter boxes so that they don't have to use the same one, but it doesn't seem to matter. I do not want to give her back to the lady that I adopted her from, because it seemed like she didn't really care about her. I love her to death, she is a great cat (2 years old) and very friendly, I just don't think it is fair for my 1st kitty that I have had 4 years for her to be miserable.

Does anyone have any suggestions, or would know of a good home for her.

I am in Kentucky, she is 2 yrs old and spayed.

I think you should keep trying before getting rid of her. If the Mods haven't moved your post, I suggest posting in the behavior forum. You can ask specific questions there and get great advice. I'm guessing your first kitty is a female??? Females are MUCH more territorial and need more time to adjust. You also need to have more than one litter box, and if possible 1 litter box for each cat plus 1. So, in your case, 3 litter boxes.

Can you sepparte the two cats into different areas of the house? Letting them have their own space for awhile could do your cat some good.

I might add....It took Leya 2 months to calm down about Stuart comming into the house and a good three months before she would have anything to do with him.

Those are just a few of my suggestions.

Hi there we're so happy to get the chance to welcome you and your kitties to TCS. I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay with us - we're one great big family and you'll find loads of friends here. If I can help at all while you're finding your way around TCS just click on my username and send me a Personal Message - I'll do what I can to answer your questions

As one of the other posters suggested, try posting in the Behaviour forum. You will get plenty of advice there about introducing a new cat into the home. It is still early days really for your two kitties and you can accomplish so much by taking a few simple steps (well, simple when you know them anyway). If you would like to keep her, please don't give up on her just yet!

I replied to your other thread, but I thought I'd also respond here...I live in Ky and may be willing to take her if you can't make it work. PM me if you can with what area you're in and to give me some more info on her...
