Introducing 1 or 2 cats into a 1 cat household
My cat had lost her brother 2 years ago to FIP and i wanted her to have a playmate as she is getting increasingly bored around the house. i have already applied for a cat at a shelter and she will be here on saturday but there is another beautiful cat that i would love to bring home as well. i have never introduced another cat in the household and im afraid if i mess up i will have 2 or 3 fighting females the whole time.
my cat now is also a shelter cat and is used to others. unlike some shelters this place was small so that the kitties ran around freely and interacted all the time, i volunteered there and seen little to no fights. the cat i am about to adopt seems pretty calm, quiet and not aggressive. i think she will be a lounging lap cat. they should get along. the other cat which appears to be maine coon is a bit hyper and even pawed at my fingers a few times as i pet her while in the cage. i think she may cause some tension with the other 2.
my house is fairly large and blocking off two rooms to bring those kitties home will probably put a damper on my cat. sometimes i think i should just bring them home and let them run around. i just have this sensation that they will all get along.
what do you think?
