Bringing a new pet into your household can be stressful for some of the members, while being joyful for others. If you have small children, other cats or dogs in your family, bringing home a new kitten will require some planning and preparation. Get some tips from fellow cat lovers in the pet community of ebayclassifieds. Your first step should always be to make sure that all pets, new and existing, have had adequate veterinarian examinations and immunizations. Small children should never be left with a new pet while unsupervised.
Once you are ready to bring your new kitten home, prepare a room where the kitten will spend her first days. This may be your bedroom, den or a spare room, but should not be a room where other pets are accustomed to spending large amounts of time. This will allow your new pet to become familiar with your house while other animals are adapting to the smell of the newcomer. After several days, you may be ready to physically introduce your pets to one another.
You must diligently supervise these first encounters. If any of your pets display outright violence toward another, separate them immediately for a later try. It can take several weeks to acclimate existing pets to an addition, and some older pets may never be completely friendly to the new one. Most often, however, the pets will find at least a form of truce where they spend most of their time in separate rooms. If this is the direction your pets are headed, you can help them out by providing separate litter boxes, snuggling beds, window sills or other spaces that they prefer.
