firecat: red panda looking happy (Default)
[personal profile] firecat
We have a new kitty! His name is Angus, he's a Tuxedo Cat, 4 years old,
and he is a bruiser at 18 pounds. We adopted him from the Peninsula
Humane Society. He seems quite confident and affectionate. We've let him
sniff noses through the door with our resident cat, Biscuit, but we're
keeping them separated for the next few days.

Before we adopted him, I snapped a photo of him in his digs at the
humane society:



Despite my having a lot of experience with cats, this is the first time I've tried introducing two unrelated cats. There's a fair amount of contradictory advice on the web. Any advice (to-dos and to-don'ts) from folks who've been there?

We always start out with good intentions

and get lazy. Our 13 y/o female and 4 y/o male tux are still working on who is alpha cat after 3 years together. They mostly ignore each other, but there is some swatting, and some nose and butt sniffing. Sometimes they are both on the bed at the same time, but they are apart.

They do agree that the 12 y/o female tux is the omega animal.
