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?

He reminds me of our old cat Jack who died last year at the age of eighteen. We got Jack from a neighbor, and we got another cat Cleo, from Mike's allergic parents, at about the same time. They didn't have the luxury of a planned introduction but were thrown into the chaos of our household by accident. They hated each other until they both got old and just didn't have the energy to argue any more. They made a lot of noise, but never did each other serious harm.
