Q. HELP,we've have2 female sister cats for 6 yrs. We took in a young neutered male (abandoned) & cannot get 1 of the older cats to accept the rescue cat
A. This can be a difficult situation but not impossible. Separate the male from the female who will not accept him for a few days then slowly begin to introduce them. Initially, allow them to hear and sniff each other from opposites sides of a closed door. Once they are acclimated that way, allow them to see each other but do not allow physical contact until there are no signs of aggression. You can place the male in a closed pet carrier and leave him in the same room for a period of time each day until she is acclimated. Pheromone sprays or collars may help in decreasing the anxiety and stress associated with the new addition.
