    on how to integrate a new cat into your home.

    The secret is s-l-o-w-l-y. Cats don't like change even if it's for the better.

      when we adopted Dylan above.  Our other cat was a year younger and we have on OLD black labrador.  

      Within 2 hours, Dylan was out of the backroom and investigating.  Moonya wasn't too thrilled but Dylan assured her that after bunking with 30 other cats at the shelter, he wasn't going to take up too much space and didn't really care if she liked him or not.  He was here to stay.

      Our dog didn't care either and they both looked at each other and just accepted the fact that the hoomanz in the house had enough love for all.  And more than enough fudz.

      Now the two cats sleep on the same bed and buffalo through the house together.

      I printed that for our son who's been staying with us for the last few weeks, sleeping in the bedroom where we're  putting the big tom at night.  At first, he told me I should let the cat sleep in my room. I told him YOU are sleeping in MY room. (Since my husband got really sick a couple of years ago and might be awake most of the night watching what I call tire-screeching-gun-shooting-people-screaming television, I moved to the back bedroom to sleep.) My son said he didn't know if he could sleep in the room with the cat, so I suggested he sleep on the couch. But, they've bonded and now, most nights, when it starts to get cold, my son brings in the tom himself before I even think of it.
