This is for @cunninghamlaura - when we got Stan, Boo tried to be friends and he kept hissing at her so she was WILD offended and started hissing back because her overtures were being rebuffed and we were thinking, ohhh fuck, they're going to hate each other. I caught this pic a few days after we got him and knew it would be okay: he was coming downstairs and she was coming around the corner and they met. No hissing, and they were wary but okay. After that they slowly started to get more and more friendly. We just gave them loads of space and it worked out. #cats #narkybuggers #introducingcats

Adoption tip number 6: cats and other pets. We're going to want to know a lot about who's living in your home before we match you up with a new kitty. A lot of people think they want to bring a kitten home to their 10 year old cat to bring out the "nurturing side" of the senior. That's like telling your Nana you're having a baby and she's going to watch it for you. If you want successful integration, you need to match temperament and energy levels or you're asking for misery. Very active cats are going to be bored with very sedate ones and sedate ones are going to feel overwhelmed by their oasis being disrupted.
Once you do find the match, we're going to talk to you about confinement(see tip number 4). It's extra important to confine when you have pets at home--1 week for healthy cats, 2 for cats with colds. They'll get to know each other through scent(their strongest sense) before they physically meet. By the time they're introduced, they'll already be familiar and feel less threatened. We don't just throw cats together at the shelter. We give them time to adjust to their new surroundings. You should too. #northshoreanimalleague #GetYourRescueOn #adoptathon2016 #tips #introducingcats

We gave Zelda a blanket that all the other cats have been sleeping on and she responded very well to their scent-marked blanket!

This is going about as well as can be expected… we're hearing a whole host of new sounds from her! #bengalcat #introducingcats

My very awkward tabby baby ❤️hoping she eventually gets along with Ham because we love them both so much. Any tips for introducing two kitties?

The kittens are quickly getting comfortable here. Brinley has a special affinity for Annabeth. While neither of them like hold still too much, Annabeth is getting used to being held all the time. This is how she fell asleep yesterday 😂. I promise the hold was very loose (and she was sitting on the ground). We are working on scent swapping between our resident cat and the kittens. They unintentionally had a meeting night one, and while our big cat didn't do anything, both kittens hissed and Annabeth started growling and was ready for a fight. So we are being extra careful and making sure to scent swap. We are planning on a second meeting next Sunday. #cbwm #kittensofinstagram #pets #petsofinstagram #introducingcats

New kitty was one of a litter of nine and the last one left. He's spent most of his life in a cage. And he doesn't like being alone. Watch him inch towards Finch. 😻#firstday #introducingcats #newkitty #finchkitteh

Grace is trying to sulk about the kitten but she is just too sweet of soul to keep it up for any length of time #introducingcats #amazinggrace #crosscat #calmingdown #enterpuck #tuxedocat #blackandwhitecat #rescuecatsofinstagram #adoptdontshop #catstagram #catsofinstagram #minou #chat #neko

So glad to be home with the two fluffy ones! Even better to see Cloud allowing Aloy near him without hissing at her! So we were worrying whilst away but turns out 2days alone has seem to have done the new relationship some good.
Now lets get me back on track

Introductions going well so far #tabbysrule #introducingcats #catfamily

Thinking more about when Ollie met Popcorn. Only one of the boys who was lucky enough to spend time with my awesome buddy Popcorn. #rainbowbridge #missingyou #bestcatever #introduction #introducingcats #watchingtv #friendshipgoals #catslife #bestfriendgoals #besties #catsofinstagram #lovecats #catlover #goodtime
