How To Prepare for a New cat


Cats can give your family a lot of satisfaction. And in order to prepare for the adoption of a new family member, Here are some tips that can help you.

1) Give your cat some time to get used to the new environment
Determine an isolation room where you will spend the first couple of days. After a certain time, the cat will want to explore other rooms, so you can gradually explore other parts of the apartment/house.

It may happen that the cat will meow the first few nights if she is not accustomed to being separated from her mother. You can calm her down by lifting her and caressing her for a while.

2) Make sure your house/apartment cat proof. This implies that a pussy cannot get out, jump out of the window or slide into a corner where you will find it difficult to get her out, for example, attic or basement.

It is advisable to be present while children are playing with a cat until you are sure that they are gentle enough to let them play with themselves. It also helps to know what type of cats are aggressive.
