Cat fact 6: Don’t be fooled if your new cat meows like crazy at your windows and doors! Here’s what’s really going on...
Rather than a desperate need to get out, it’s a sign they aren’t fully settled in their new home just yet. Cats are territorial, so coming into a new environment can be stressful.
When you bring your cat home, place it in a small room or enclosed area (somewhere quiet), rather than giving access to your entire home when it first comes home.
Set up the room with your cat's bed, bowls, litter tray, and a hidey hole (such as a box or tunnel). Cats need a safe place to hide, especially when they are in a new place.
Most cats prefer a hiding spot with an escape route, so the best kind of box is one with an entrance and exit. Then slowly introduce them to the rest of your home.
