HOW YOU CAN HELP YOUR CAT TO ACCEPT OTHER PETS


Open-minded and sociable house cat seeks flatmate!”.

A cat living together with other pets in a big patchwork family – Is that really possible or does this automatically lead to stressful situations?

A kitten is socialised as of the 4th week of its life. This usually happens together with their siblings, “single kittens” are merely the exception. During this period, they learn everything about feline social behaviour and are educated by both their mum and their siblings. If a cat has grown up in that kind of species-appropriate environment, it will still go hunting alone – but for the rest of the time it will happily engage with others. In that regard, cats are very sociable animals! They love the physical contact with other cats, they clean each other and play together – also, relaxing is far more enjoyable together than alone!

Catteries

One possible option is to put your pet into a cattery. Here you need to be sure that the premises are suitably furnished for cats, and that the people running it can handle individual requirements – special diets, food allergies, not being able to get on with other cats and so on. Cleanliness and good ventilation are of course a must.
