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?

No advice to offer, since others with more experience have chimed in, but welcome to the new member of your household.

Your post, along with the post of another friend who knits cat beds for her local shelter, inspired me to call the Peninsula HS to see if they needed cat beds knitted. Answer: they're more worried than the other shelter is about the loops in knitting getting caught in cats' claws (but they're fine with fleece, which I find odd); however, they're open to several other types of donations that we can help them out with. So they'll be getting some old towels and rugs shortly.

That really ought to work, esp. if they accept fleece. But the person I talked to probably needs to see the result in person to convince her that cats won't catch their claws on the items in question. She sounded quite concerned about it.
