A Few Quick Reminders:
- Adjustment time: It takes time for new pets to adjust. So be patient. Don't force a bonding session. Let them come to you.
- Kids: For the first few weeks make sure pets and kids are supervised at all times. Pets: Animals are territorial. If you have an existing pet make sure the initial introduction is done on neutral ground like a nearby park (not a dog park) and that all pets are on leash.
- Separate water and food bowls.
- Separate beds.
- Separate toys.
- Separate sleeping areas for the first few weeks!
