Ask a Cat Lady: How Do I Get My Old Cat to Like My New Cat?

Feb 10th 2012  |   1 Contribution

This week's question comes from Carol, who writes: I am adopting a new kitty, but I'm afraid Mr. Jango will not react well to a new friend in the house. What's the best way for me to introduce them to each other?

The lyrics:

Lie in Your Sun
By Sarah Donner

I was the one who lived on your bed
I puked on your rug and slept on your head sometimes
We played with the string, I sat on your lap
It was just us, and I liked it like that

And who's this new friend that I see you have brought?
She slept in our bed and she pooped in my box

I was the only one
To shed on your couch and lie in your sun
Hissing and scowling and taking a swat
Just goes to prove that I am the boss

Here are some tips you might not assume
Give us our space inside separate rooms

Keep switching our bedding so were used to the smells
In a few days, we'll be making out

And we'll be the only ones
To shed on your couch and lie in your sun
We'll run round the house and break all your stuff
You'll know we are friends when we lick each other's
Bum bum ba dum dums ... Oooo oooo
