Natalie, I'd like to hear about your method of introductions. and I'd love to know how many cats you have. I assume you must rescue too.
I have what I think is an excellent set up here. I have an entire little guest cottage attached to our house that has never housed guests other than cats :-) I have a screen door on the front and a new cat lives in there for a few weeks while the other cats look at him/her sniff, hiss etc. When I finally let the new cat out they are already well acquainted with my other cats. I also own a cageless no kill shelter in a large building I bought in town. This is also for rescued cats, who can roam through 4 large rooms furnished second hand furniture, cat condos etc. Oddly enough the cats there get along fine, so I wonder if my cats at home are fighting for my attention?? I give them all pets, kisses, bushing and lap time, but when several cats want to get on my lap at once all hell breaks loose :-( Lorrie >12-19, Natalie wrote: > We probably have the largest number of cats!
