1. Provide A Small Area To Call Their Own– Cats are extremely territorial and coming into a new environment leaves them feeling really uneasy. There’s so much to explore in their new space that they aren’t sure what may be around every corner. Do them a favor and provide them a small area to call their own for a few days or weeks ( especially when introducing them to another cat in the home ). Furnish the room with a few cat items such as food, water and a litter box. You’ll want to spend time with your new furry friend so make sure that it’s as comfortable for you to enjoy as well.
2. Purchase Cat Litter- When we first got Ellie, I wasn’t sure what type of cat litter to choose from because of the many options! I came across Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light® while shopping the other day and it seemed perfect! It has amazing odor control which is perfect for having two cats. The clumping action is one of the strongest clumps out there plus it has low dust which means low tracking for when they are done with their business. SIGN ME UP! The best part? Every purchase you make of Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light® goes to donating a pound of litter to shelter across the country!
3. Look At It From Your Cats Point Of View– I’m serious! Try and look at your home with a curious cat eye for climbing or exploring potential. When your cat becomes acclimated to your home, you may be surprised to find them on top of the upper kitchen cabinets ( Ellie was notorious for having that be her safe haven ) so make sure that there isn’t anything on display there or on high shelves that could potential be damaged or hurtful to them.
Did you know that you can sign up for the free Cat’s Pride Club to nominate a shelter to receive litter donations. Over 4 million pounds of litter have been donated since 1995, which is nearly 400,000 pounds this year already! You’ll able to find updates on the program donations and shelter highlights on the website too. Learn more at catspride.com/litterforgood!
