Your Cats and Feral Ones

What happens when you decide to expand your feline family at home by adopting a new cat? Is it okay to introduce a feral stray into your home? Mainly, it depends on a few factors. As always, check with your Colorado Springs vet for more information.

Examination

First, you’ll want to make sure that the new cat has been checked out. Most shelters and humane societies will do this, but look into it just to make sure. If you have any questions about this, you can always check with your Colorado Springs vet. Make sure that there is an up-to-date record.

Observation

It probably won’t happen instantly, but it won’t take forever either for your cat and the new one to get along. A routine will generally help this. If you see any sort of hostility, then a slower introduction might be necessary. For more information, check with your Colorado Springs vet.

It’s a wonderful thing to give an abandoned animal a new home. It’s just important to do so in a way that is safe for all family members. For more, ask your Colorado Springs vet.
