How can you stop cat-on-cat staring? Introduce your cats properly!

If you’re adding a new cat into your home, it’s important to take steps to avoid — or at least lessen — the aggression that could come from either kitty. Here are a few steps to take when introducing cats — and cut back on any potential aggressive cat staring:

  1. Introduce them gradually. Don’t simply place both cats in the same room together and expect them to become fast friends.
  2. Share scents between the two cats. This can be done by trading blankets or toys so each kitty can get used to the other one’s smell.
  3. Initially confine the new cat in a closed room with his own food, water and litter box.
  4. A good way to slowly introduce the cats is to feed them on either side of the door, with the food bowls moving closer and closer to the door. Soon, they’ll be eating with just a minor barrier between them.

Make sure all initial contact is supervised.
