Never Let Your New Cat Run Free

“It’s always a good idea to have your cat set up in just one room to start,” advises Hovav. This way the sights, scents, and sounds of this strange new place can be experienced in smaller doses, and won’t cause your new cat to take refuge under the bed for a week. Getting familiar with your home one room at a time gives kitty a chance to explore new territory at her own pace. Hovav says that by starting her out her by confining her to a single room with a litter box, water, food, bedding and a nightlight will “allow her to gradually get accustomed to her new home without being overwhelmed. It will also make sure she knows where to find the litter box.”
