Getting your cat settled in
If you've adopted a cat or kitten, you'll need to get them settled into their new home. A change of environment is always stressful for a cat - with time, patience and our top tips, they should be feeling relaxed within a few weeks.
Cats rely heavily on their sense of smell, often settling quicker if their new home smells familiar. Before you collect your cat, take an item of clothing or blanket and leave it with them for a few days. When you pick your cat up, take the item with you - ideally, it'll need to fit in their carrier while travelling.
