I was just wondering.....

post #1 of 4

Hi, everyone......new to the site here...

I was just wondering....Is it possible for a resident cat to NEVER accept a new cat? My 6 month old kitten wants to eat my new 3 mo old kitten that i rescued around t-giving. I read the ariticle ya'll had posted somewhere about introducing a new cat into your home. I've been trying to follow the steps exactly...but i have to admit i cheat a little.....sigh.
I also tried the vanilla extract and letting the newcomer walk around so that the resident kitty can get used to his scent. A lady who works at my vet's office said that it took her resident male cat 2 months to finally accept the new male cat. (Sorry, I'm very scatter-brained right now.)
sigh.....it's so hard to feed one cat when your other one keeps trying to run in the new cat's room everytime you open the door....
Also, I was hoping someone could give me some more info on those sprays that help calm cats down....

Hi, welcome to TCS! The spray to which you're referring is probably Feliway. You may also want to consider getting a Feliway Diffuser. I keep one at all times for my girls.

Some cats are one-household cats only. My resident kitty was 6 months old, very territorial, and grumpy about an intruder on his turf. However, my new kitty was 4 months old and incredibly friendly. He loved everyone and wanted to be everyone's best friend so he won my resident kitty over in about a week. It really depends on the cats' personalities if they will get along or will do better alone.
