Just make sure you show her where her litterbox is and then where food and water are. Then kinda let her do her own thing.

A lot of cats don’t take change very well, so she might hide or be a little odd for a week or two after you bring her home. Or she might be perfectly fine from the get go. However she is, it’s important to let her take things at her own pace. And if she’s having a hard time, she’ll work through it and come around in her own time.

She is absolutely adorable though! Yay for saving shelter kitties! πŸ™‚

I have never owned a cat since I am allergic and more of a dog person so no advice really, but she is absolutely beautful!

And yay for adopting an older cat! My heart always breaks for the older animals in shelters because most people want a baby.

She is precious looking. Thank you for adopting.

We adopted our cat 3 years ago. He was 5 months old.

A good way to help introduce them to the house is to first set them up in a smaller room (like a bathroom) with their litter box, food, water, and a bed. 

Once she seems comfortable in there, you can just leave the door open a crack so she can come out and explore on her own terms.

Depending on how big your place is and how timid she is you may want to slowly introduce her to the rest of the house so she doesn’t get overwhelmed. 

Don’t be worried if she seems “off” for a few days, cats take time to adjust to new surroundings.

Our cat was out of the bathroom and exploring in 1 day. And when we moved him from the US to the UK he only needed about 20-30 min in the bathroom to “decompress” before he felt comfortable exploring the rest of the apartment.
