Q: I heard you shouldn’t adopt a cat if you already have one because a resident cat won’t accept a new one in the home. Is that true?
A: No, however, when adding a new cat to your home, there is one way to almost assuredly guarantee things will go badly: just plop the new cat down in front of the resident cat. Even arranged marriages do take some arranging. Cats are territorial (maybe even more than dogs) and will almost always adjust, but it will take time and your savviness.
