    Are the 4 cats already familiar with each other if so, keep them segregated when you are not there then for a short while each day let them co mingle with the other 2 cats a little longer each day. Also be sure to add more cat boxes to make sure you keep everyone happy, after about a week to 10 days you should be good to leave them together and alone.

    placed chole in a room that kendra infrequently ever is going into, do no longer enable chole run the homestead. provide the two cats a towel to sleep on and once you puppy one enable them to sniff the towel that the different cat grow to be dozing on, do the comparable once you feed them, the objective is to have each cat link the different cats scent to solid issues like nutrition and interest. try this for sort of two weeks. then placed chole in a cat provider and enable her and kendra work together, the cat provider protects the cats from struggling with and makes kendra experience safer. while they initiate feeling soft around one yet another you are able to enable chole and kendra work together for a jiffy daily, slowly increasing the time they are allowed to spend at the same time. its a sluggish technique yet cats are not very social creatures so it may take a whilst for them to get used to a minimum of one yet another.

    Make sure you supervise the initial meeting. They will naturally have some disputes at first. If they are inside cats be sure they all have plenty of room to go their own way. And VERY important...they all need their own food bowl and their own litter box!

    You need to do this gradually, by keeping them in separate rooms, ideally with a screen door or so they can see each other but can't get to each other. gradually introduce them to each other, but with supervision. Sometimes there is no problem, unless you have an aggressive cat.Make sure they have all been tested for feline leukemia, etc.
