Bringing Home a New Cat?
Whether your cat will be an only pet or included with resident pets, your new family member will need some extra support during this very important transition time. The most important thing you will need to do before bringing your new kitty home is to set up the "safe room". In this guide, you'll learn why this safe room is important, how to prep the room, steps once you bring the new kitty home, and a shopping list (just in case that cute furry face was too distracting.)
As a bonus, you can also download a copy of "Creating a Safe Home for Your Cat". Cats and kittens are like toddlers - If allowed, they will get into everything... even the dangerous stuff. Here is a general list of common household spots to protect from curious paws.
