Timing of new cat introduction after a move
Hello--I may be moving into a larger apartment in a few months, which would allow me to adopt another cat to be a companion for the one I already have. I work a lot, so I think it would ultimately be better for him, although it might take a while for my cat to realize how great a friend can be!
I'm just wondering what people think would be the best timing for the new cat introduction. Would it be better to introduce the new cat as soon as possible after the move, so my old cat wouldn't have his territory staked out as firmly? Or would a new environment and the presence of a strange cat just be WAY too stressful?
I guess it's a question of whether a cat would deal better with a whole bunch of freaky new stuff at once or to experience first one upsetting new thing and then another one a few months later.
Thanks for your opinions! I don't have too much cat experience under my belt (yet).
