Advice for Bringing home a 12-14wk old kitten.
Looks like we may be bringing home a 12-14wk old ragdoll kitten in 6-8weeks & I need advice on how to transition our new addition to our home.
Those of you with dogs, when do you let them meet? I've been reading and it seems most sites say to keep them separated for the first 1-2 days while the kitten gets use to its new surroundings and then let them meet, or let the kitten go up to the dog while the dog is crated or let the dog smell the kitten while it is safely in its carrier. Also, what do you do for the first few nights? I was thinking I might sleep in the living room the first few nights so I can make sure he transitions peacefully & knows exactly where to find me if he needs me. It's much easier for dogs because at night I just put them in their crate and then I'll sleep beside it the first couple nights but a Kitten - well I'm kind of clueless? lol
Xavier "our great dane" usually sleeps with us in our bedroom, but when I'm gone he goes into the laundry room. So the plan is to keep him up in the laundry room the first couple days & then slowly let them meet.
What about everything else.
I've read taking the kitten to their litter box FIRST THING when you get home is number one....
What else should I know?
