They will be first vaccs as my vet told us that as mainly indoor cats they didn't need them! I now know this isn't necessarily true as they could still pick something up in the garden?! Strange for a vet to say that when he is going to be missing out on the proceeds of several sets of vaccinations every year!  :sneaky:


Also with the cat flu virus, it's airborne as well as with contact, so, although unlikely in an indoor cat, still theoretically possible, with windows open etc.

Yes, sure is unusual for a vet NOT to recommend vacs!  :-:

how soon is too soon to mix them?  I've always done the scent swapping for introductions but haven't ever thought about disease control before being on here and now I think I probably know a bit too much!

Presumably you will be getting them vaccinated in the next few days? Will it be the full course or just a booster? If its the full course, its generally 3 weeks between 1st and 2nd jab - so if it was me I'd wait till after the 2nd jab (thats what I did with BB). Otherwise I'd probably wait at least a week before intros - doing the scent swapping etc like you mentioned, by then you'll be able to judge how Smudge and Dylan might react - and how yours will too.

They are from a loving home environment not a mixed rescue home or a neglected case so they shouldnt have been exposed to much, knowledge can be a bad thing at times!

Hi Dawn,
 Don't worry too much about them being settled quickly. When we first picked them up they hid upstairs for a while and then slowly came down the stairs for a nose around. Obviously its a bit more difficult for you as you are keeping them separate first. Its a shame I couldn't get them vaccinated before you picked them up, as I think your cats will have settled them in quickly. They are so inquisitive of other cats. I read some where that it might be their breed, as exotics have apparently so road sense and aren't particular aware of their surroundings! This means that if another cat ever jumped on our wall or walked past our gate they were more curious than territorial! ...Unlike Mojo who just ran inside!!  :Luv:
Just get loads of catnip in, and furry mice... they will love you in no time  :)
Whatare your other babies like with newcomers?

I know what you mean Dawn! When I went to collect Honey and Gypsy, I'd never been there before, and it should have been a half hour journey, but ended up being over an hour, cos I got myself completely lost LOL! On the way home Honey yelled the whole way, my nerves were shattered by the time I got home  :tired: Gypsy settled in straight away, but Honey took a little longer.

On the other hand when I went to get Suzie, I managed to find the place straight away and she was as quiet as a mouse all the way home.  When Jasper and Zeta came together - they were delivered, so no fraught journey for me  :)

You are wise not to mix straight away, they'll need time to settle in anyway before they meet the others. Is it tomorrow you are getting them?

I am nervous!!  about how they will get on about if I will ever find my way to Rugby!!  I'm also touched that Leigh is entrusting them to me, I know it hasn't been an easy choice for her

Hi Dawn, Don't worry too much about the cats settling in. I thought 3 Persians i picked up from london a week last saturday would take ages to settle in amongst 5 of my own moggies 2 moggies on my adoption list and 2 moggies fostered. But within a few days they were in the same room and now even eat and play in the same room. and 2 of the persians have been attempting to play with 2 of my Moggies and visa versa.

Sending lots of possitive vibes and big Hugz and Purrrz from The-Kats-Whiskers  :hug:
What i did to make things easier on the previous owners because they found the proccess so upsetting, was to create a website just for the 3 Persians so they can read regular updates and see pictures.
http://purrrrfect-persians.blogspot.com
They have found it a great comfort.

Good luck and have a safe journey collecting your new babies.  :hug:

I would have loved them to -but i am full too and Winston would never accept another male in the house .
He only likes Smartie because he was here first and he is so passive and soft.
You are very lucky Dawn -hope everything works out well.

its me!!!!!  just need to work out the transportation, I was going to go with Debs but have a stupid teleconference that i had forgotten about that doesn't finish until 2 on Monday so will probably have to be Tuesday - I'm excited but a bit nervous as well - I really hope they all get on  :scared:    I had decided a month or two ago to get another bengal but these boys have a lovely calm temperament and need a home so in the long run should fit into the gang a bit easier - I fell in love with an exotic at the blue cross I go to a few years back, his name was Alfred and he was such a sweetheart, unfortunately they don't encourage multicat households and so I couldn't have him

Says further down, Janey. ;)


Thanks but I thought Dawn was adopting Mojo?

 :1st place: Dawn  ;D

You kept that one quiet! I'm sure these lovely boys will settle in just fine, as i said about Mojo I'm sure Leigh will miss them all terribly but she has to put her son's health first and now all three of them have found absolutely first class loving homes with Purrs people they will all be in safe hands

One thing though Dawn, I'm not sure if it was mentioned but as part of the adoption process you are required BY LAW to learn how to post piccies so we don't miss out on seeing the gorgeous Dylan and Smudge settling in  :evillaugh:

Right, I give up  >:( I'm sure there was a thread recently where loads of people said how many cats they had - I've spent ages looking for it and I can't find it  :shify:

Off the top of my head there's:

Gill
DawnF
Zoe (already said it's not her)
Tina (think she has 4?)
Moiramassey

Surely it can't be Debsy?! That would just be greedy seeing as she will be adopting the lovely Mojo already.
