Bringing Home a New Cat

When bringing home a new cat, start by confining her to one room with the litter box on one side and food and water on the opposite side.

Make sure the room also has a bed, scratching post and some toys.

Once your cat is comfortable in her new home, she can investigate the rest of the house. If all goes well, you can just move the litter box - just be sure to show her the new litter box spot!
