Bonnie, It is always best to go slow. After another week you could put Lucky in a carrier and set it in a room used by your other cats. You could put the others in his room and let him roam the house for an hour or so. That give them all a chance to get used to each others scent. It would also give Lucky safe time to explore the rest of your home. Here are some links you might want to read on introducing a new cat.
You can add Bach Rescue Remedy to everyone's water. Feliway diffusers strategically placed around your home will help calm everyone. http://www.humanesociety.org/animals/cats/tips/introducing_new_cat.html http://www.fourpaws.org/pages/adopting_pages/introducing_cats.html http://www.aspcabehavior.org/articles/26/Introducing-Your-Cat-to-a-New-Cat.aspx Sharyl --- On Mon, 9/20/10, Bonnie Hogue <ho...@sonic.net> wrote: > From: Bonnie Hogue <ho...@sonic.net> > Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] Fw: New to Feline Leukemia > To: email@example.com > Date: Monday, September 20, 2010, 11:32 PM > So here is a question about > Integrating a New Cat.... > I've got Lucky in the back bedroom.
