Weekly Ragdoll: Introducing a New Cat or Kitten to Your Resident Cat(s)

Hi Everyone!

Hope y'all had a good weekend. We did and we're catching temperatures of 75 at night and 94 and over during the day, that might seem super hot to some of you guys, but that's normal summer weather for us in Florida.  I have **finally** had some 'free' time to work on the blog some before work, school, chores, Zayd, and my 2 new betta fish keep me busy. Lucky for me because now I have my ass in gear for the week on this blog! Kidding...sort of ;)

When I first brought Zayd home, I had kept him away from my other cats for 3 days to help prevent stress on all cats and possible sickness for Zayd since he was new. Saphira was so mad at me that when I would open my room door to walk in and visit Zayd, she would dart in and beat his sorry butt into the corner, Star let me know that she disproved of having another cat around by leaving me little 'presents' by the litterbox, yuck! Anya was the most excepting of Zayd's arrival since she is a Ragdoll cat and they are suppose to get along great with other pets, Anya was a little jealous at first and when I finally let her in to meet Zayd, she would be a big push over and want constant attention from me when I would be petting Zayd. Silly girl, but of course I gave her what she wants.

What helped me the most when I introduced my 3 adults to Zayd was letting them sniff each other through the door way crack until I finally let them all meet him for the first time (one at a time). Best of luck!

Anya to Zayd: "you came to the wrong place, kid." Notice how Anya only has a few inches on Zayd! (Anya bottom and Zayd top).
