How to introduce two stranger cats to each other?


We have a cat that is more friendly to humans than to its kind. Today, we took a very mild/tamed cat on the street with us. When we introduced this new cat to our cat, our cat makes a growling sound and she really doesn't like the idea of having another cat although she was with two cats before (both died) when she was young. What to do? Any ideas?

    Is it? You're good at the "easy" parts then...Nobody else here except my husband and I so we have to do our best in this.

    Top rank, huh! Most probably...and I just hope she realizes soon that nobody else wants to take that rank away from her. She's really upset and angry with us also...didn't purr last night! Whew!

    The therapy guy really made it looked so easy, Lisa. Effective ways though. From what all of you are saying it seems like cats will eventually be fond of each other given the exposure. As of now, our first cat's started to open up to the new cat.

    I tried that, too last night. I made them sit together in one chair. The new cat was just silent and meek while our cat sniffed and hissed and growled. She really doesn't like the idea of having a new cat but I think it really takes time, if ever!

    Ha ha...your cat must have seen all Bruce's movies to act that way. Anyway, I really hope that they'll become friends. This new cat is really very mild and meek. Just doesn't fight back. Guess he knows who's the boss...lol!
