Hello all! I currently have a 1 yr. old female persian/himmi , and an almost-2 yr. old Manx cross . I am trying to decide if I should adopt a 7 week old black persian girl , and I have a few questions . I brought home my girl when she was 5 months old, and she was very tiny and very sick. My male cat did all the regular things when being introduced, such as chasing and sniffing, etc. My little girl seemed indifferent, as I expect her to be if I bring a new kitty into the home. I'm rambling a bit, so I'll get straight to the questions! Umm, the cats have a sleeping pattern, and know where "their" areas of the house are. My male cat sleeps upstairs with my mom, and my little girl sleeps on the bed downstairs with me. I'm worried that if I bring home a new cat, it'll be shunned, banished. I don't know where she should sleep during the introduction phase. During the day, while we're at work, she'll be downstairs with toys, water, and food, but what do I do with her at night? I don't want to encroach on my current cats sleeping areas, but I want the new cat to be able to sleep with one of us if she wants. How do I enable them to sleep together while the new cat and old cats are still getting to knwo each other? PS - Sorry about making a SHORT question a LONG one!
