Lynley Cannon, star of the Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery series, is often referred to as a crazy cat lady herself, but when it comes to the feline species, this sixty-something cat shelter volunteer knows her stuff. Check here each Friday for instructive and intriguing information on our favorite subject: cats!
As a cat foster parent, I bring new kitties home on a regular basis. Are my cats happy about it? Not really, but with careful introduction, they adjust. I start the new cat in his own separate space, then let him familiarize with my cats by exchange of scent (cat-bed towels work well). When both cats seem ready to meet, I allow short moments of sight accompanied by treats. It usually takes about 2 weeks.
