Preparing Your House for Your Cat
Adopting a cat or kitten can take some time to acclimate. A "safe place" can aid with this shift. Your new cat can hang out here until it's comfortable.
Reasons Why a Pet-Safe Room Is Necessary
Joyful cats are bashful. Rescue kittens may be apprehensive. Even outgoing cats need space to roam. Cats may find a large home or apartment enormous. One room per cat.
Safe rooms are great if you already have cats since they allow for a gradual introduction. Territorial. Forcing introductions may backfire. Most cats can get along if introduced gently.
Location Criteria for a Secure Room
Choose and prepare a room for your cat. Safe rooms are small, doored rooms. Safe rooms have a toilet, closet, or guest room. Avoid noisy rooms
What Your Cat's Safe Room Needs
The secure room should have a litter box, food and water bowls, scratcher, blankets, and toys. Cat grass and catnip are treats. Cats don't eat near rubbish.
Instructions for Using a Vault
When visiting your cat, let it approach you. A feather wand or treats can help. If there are no other cats in the house, you can let your cat explore.
Safe Room Use Time
Watch cats interact via the door. If no other cats are violent or bullying, let your new cat adapt at his own speed. If your new cat is being bullied, extend the safe space.
