Here is the deal. My friend owns a cat and she is considering getting another for a companion to her first while my friend works. I've read all the threads concerning introductions. But the thing is, my friend lives in a basement apartment. The living room she shares with another couple who rent the bedroom next to hers. While she is at work, the male cat Snyder stays in her room. That's were all the food, water, litterbox, and toys are kept. Snyder is let out when my friend is home from work. Snyder is a 7 month old neutered male. How can she do the introductions? I've told her to get a crate were the new cat is going to be. Put the litterbox in it together with her bed, litterbox, food and water. Plus some toys. Is this a good idea? Keep the crate in the living room to get the cats used to each other. And once they start to get along or at least tolerate each other, then she can eliminate the crate. I also told her to get another male who is about the same age as Snyder. Did I give good advice?
