How long will it take for my cats to adjust to a new home?
How long will it take for my cats to fully adjust to a new home environment? Relating to my question, I moved into my new house out of a one bed flat. I have three cats, two sisters (3 years) and a male (2 years).
It has been a month now, and both my females are still growling, hissing and smacking each other if they cross paths. They no longer wish to eat together. (I have supplied extra bowls.) The male appears very settled but was a very chilled out cat anyways.
There is also the addition of a kitten who I found as a feral suffering from severe conjunctivitis. (Rescues refused to take him so I decided to keep him.) He was separated for two weeks till he recovered.
The male has taken to him, but the females behavior still continues. I have two Feliway diffusers
on either side of the living room which don't appear to be helping.
I would appreciate any advice, as I have never had problems like this even when I introduced my 2-year-old male as a kitten, and it's painful to see such close knit cats appearing to despise each other.
