Bringing Kitty Home

Make a Safe Haven
It’s finally time to bring your kitty home, and he or she may be nervous entering the new environment. Set up a small, quiet space beforehand to set up all the basic items you’ve purchased. Keep traffic to the area low as he or she adjusts to the new space. Don’t be alarmed if your cat is shy, skittish, or won’t come to you; with patience, he or she will come around. Spend time together and offer affection if the cat is interested, but also allow your new friend time alone to acclimate.
