We are getting him through a rescue centre. The centre were great and met our current cat and asked questions about his personality and tried to match us with a cat they hoped would get along.
Our current cat is an 19 month old ragdoll mix, a boy. The new cat is a 6 month old boy who the centre suspect is a maine coon mix. The new boy is currently living with cats and the centre say he is cat friendly.
We are starting to plan for our new arrival. I have read the article on the cat site and spoke to friends who have introduced cats before but I just have a few questions...
We will be isolating the new cat in a spare bedroom for the first few days. There is a gap at the bottom of the door, should I initially cover it over so that there is no contact between the two cats?
Also, I know I will start to feel sorry for the newcomer and will find it hard to not rush the process...will the little guy be okay shut in a room for a few days?
And, I would just like to know what are the positive signs to look out for? For example would it be a good sign if my current cat was hanging around outside the room?
Thanks in advance! Sorry for all the questions Im just a bit anxious about the introduction process!
