If you already have a cat and you are looking to bring a new one home, you'll soon realize that there are many things that you need to think about. When you introduce two cats, no matter how sweet-tempered or shy they are, you might be surprised at how vicious they can be and how bitterly they can react to each other.

If you are looking to make sure that the introductions go smoothly, you'll find that there are several things that you need to keep in mind.

When you are looking to make sure that your cats get to know each other safely and easily, take it slow and make sure that you have made the proper preparations. Arrange to have a small room set up for your new cat; a small bathroom or bedroom is ideal. When you are looking to make sure that your cats don't hurt each other, let them spend a few days smelling each other through a door.

This way, your new cat will have an area that will be all his own and your old cats can deal with a new comer without getting too stressed about having them in their own places.

After, a few days have passed in this situation, you can bring out the new cat for short periods of time. If it gets too stressful or dangerous you need to take the new cat back to their safe place.

For the most part, you'll see that they just want to explore each other, and they'll work out their issues of dominance without harming each other.

If they are being to aggressive towards each other at this stage, then take the extra precaution and put the new cat in a cat carrier, and let them explore each other that way. The new cat will feel secure, and the other cat will see them as less of a threat. Once they seem comfortable with each other in this situation.

Then, open the door to the cat carrier, and let the new cat come out at their own pace. Don't rush either one into a situation they are not ready for. Be patient.

Start with the meeting being a few minutes at a time. Then move on to a few hours at a time. When introducing a new cat into your home, you'll need to be patient. It will take some getting used to on everybody's part. However, if done properly you'll have them getting along in no time.
