Hello, i've taken in a grown cat and she's distraught. i'm wondering if there's anything more i can do to ease her into the family, aside from giving her time and space.
She comes from the apartment across the hall from a young couple who had to give her to another home when they discovered they have bad cat allergies. She was born 2 years ago there, and has lived with her birth parents and this couple since.
She has spent quite a bit of time crying at the door - i think she can hear them and smell them. Does it help to have a few of her toys and things from that home?
i had a cat for 6 years, so i know what a happy cat needs for daily living, etc. It's just so sad to hear her cry, and the way she slinks about, avoiding me and my daughter. i want to make all her heartache go away, y'know?
