Adopt A Cat

Introducing a new cat into a household with existing cats can seem like an overwhelming task. The transition can take several weeks but planning can reduce the stress, allow for an easier transition, and build a positive relationship between your feline companions.

The first few days you should isolate your new cat in a separate room with its own food, water, litter box, and toys. Then be sure to make an appointment with your veterinarian. They will conduct a physical examination and test the cat for viruses like FIV and FeLV which can be transmitted to other cats in the household.
