Hi! I'm new to the site and so happy I found such a great place for cat info! I've had cats my whole life, and tonight I'm adding a new boy to my one cat household-so needless to say I am very excited and NERVOUS! Winston is the original; he's almost two and is a shelter rescue and my boyfriend and I love him. it was hilarious when we got him because my bf picked him out at the shelter but it was me that Winston fell in love with-he follows me everywhere! But he's alone a lot and came from a multi-cat home, so we think a companion might be a good plan. I found a guy on Craigslist who fosters strays off the streets here in Philly-gets them vetted, neutered, treated, tested, etc, and then finds good homes for them. So he has this awesome little boy who's almost a year old and is totally healthy (now that he's been wormed and treated for fleas, and is FIV/FeLV negative). anyway, I was on here all day yesterday reading all of your tips for introducing new cats, and i must say, there's a LOT of advice on this topic! I'm definitely trying the vanilla extract, the blanket/scent thing, and so on...I just wanted to say thanks! i'm going to try to post pics of my boys.
