This month I will be getting a new friend..a "guest cat" named Harrold. he is black and white spotted and was a stray like me. His meowmy is in the middle moving and doesn't want to leave him alone all day and night.
Now meowmy told me she's doing this for some GOOD CAT reasons. Harrold's human helped her out immensely during her face surgery and loves animals wholeheartedly. She also pet-sits too. So everfurry night has been telling me I must be good and share our hearth and home for this special kitteh. She knows I understand her werds..
Kittehs do ya have any ideas to help the guest cat and me get along??

Hmmpf, I don't know Henry. We have one of those so called "Guest" cats. Lets see, how long has she been a guest here? 4 years? 5 years? IDK, time flies. You HAVE to be careful. They move in and say they're just a guest and then they just stay and stay furever.
I would recommend you keep your guest cat in a separate room, like the bathroom, guest bed room works good too. We had ours in the bathroom (it's a huge bathroom) but she INSISTED on coming out after 2 days. I hissed and smacky pawed her. Our guest cat is very well behaved. She never fought back. It took me a LONG time to get used to ours. Hopefully you'll have more luck. Your Mom just needs to keep talking calmly and don't be alarmed at a little hissing if your Mom lets you together, that's normal. Be sure not to back him into a corner, but leave him room to escape. Your Mom can pick you up and move you if you get too close to him. Good luck. I'll be thinking of you.
I would suggest keeping the guest cat in a separate room so you can smell each other without getting too close. Hope it goes well!
Separate rooms at first helps.
