You who follow at Instagram has already seen her, Rut. Our newest fluffy, soft, Brittish shorthair family member. Adorable in every way. This will be the fourth day we have her. And things has gone smooth, so far.
The introduction to our first cat, Hiro has been carefully planned, as most cats do not always willingly accept a new member of the family (they need time to get used to it). The first two days the cats was only able to smell and hear each other. As this guide suggest we rubbed the cats with the same towel to intermix their scents, let them play paws under the door and also switched the cats’ locations a couple of times before the introduction.
The introduction (yesterday) went better than expected. Rut was placed safe in her cat carrier at a table (no eye contact at first). When we opened the cat carrier door Hiro was served his favorite meal and Rut got catnip. Both of the cats acted curiously and sniffed each other. Then there was some chasing and fighting but no bigger fuss. She seems like a though one, and even if he might be a careful cat he still he seems eager to mark his territory, just as he should. So I belive things are going well.
