How To Ease A New Pet Into Your Home:

   Adding a new pet into the mix is undeniably exciting and fun. However, like any transition, it can be a learning process at the same time. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind when integrating a new furry family member into your home.

Be patient and calm

  A new pet is bound to be at least a little nervous when brought into a new environment, more so when there are other pets in the home that they are meeting for the first time. Take it slow and don’t rush them to interact with one another. A great way to help ease this is to have a separate location for your new pet to stay, so they can have some alone time to get used to the house– and slowly interact over time. 

 

Build a routine

  If your new pet will be the only animal in your home, get a routine set up for their feeding, walking, playtime, etc. to help them get familiar and feel comfortable within your home. If there are other animals in the home and your new friend is separated from them initially, utilize the same schedule for them that you normally use with your other pets. This will ease their transition into sharing feeding time, walks, and attention with another animal.

Example:

-Feed at 8 am

-Walk

-Playtime at 12 pm

-Treats 

-Walk 2 pm

-Dinner 3 pm

-Walk before bedtime

Celebrate the good behavior of any pets within the home

A good way to help your new friend adjust to your household rules is to reward both them and any other pets in the home for things they do well–or for listening particularly well. Even small moments such as coming when told being positively enforced can help greatly. This is especially helpful if you already have an animal integrated within your home who follows directions, as it will encourage your new pet to follow their example. Rewarding all animals in the home whenever possible, rather than only your new animal, helps keep their forming bond in the best shape possible while not causing competition to arise. 

 

Quality time 

  Get to know your new pet, try your best to bring a new animal friend into your home when your schedule will allow you the time to get to know them. Spend as much time with your new fur baby as possible, and their adjustment into your home will go a lot smoother. This quality time will also help build the bond between pet and pet parent.

 Animals can be pretty darn quirky when it comes to nearly everything they do. There are so many facts about them that just about everyone has down pat and a couple that may surprise you.

1. The Cute Way Cats Pull a Mary Poppin’

    It’s a well-known fact that cats land on their feet, but the mind-boggling part is how. Cats have the ability to tuck their body into an almost umbrella-like shape, in order to be positioned correctly and land on their feet. This ability is called the Cat Righting Reflex.

2. If I Own 6, Will I Become A Mathematician?  

  Oddly enough, it is a scientifically proven fact that individuals who own dogs score higher during mathematics-based tests on average than individuals who don’t. Owning dogs can also help decrease anxiety, and aid you in strengthening your work ethic

3. Talk About Fish Lips

   A fact that some people know, some people don’t, and most people wish they didn’t– is that a vast majority of lipstick brands have fish scales in their products. This is often listed as pearlescence” on your lipsticks ingredients label. 

4. How Mr. Purrington Was Caught For His Crime

   Humans have fingerprints that help us to tell one another apart, this being incredibly helpful in all manner of police investigations. Our feline friends have their own way to do this, with their noses. Every cat’s nose has a different print, and this was, unfortunately, the reason Mr. Purrington was convicted of grand theft catnip… Click me for more interesting facts about cat noses.

5. Are Your Fish Really All That Silent?

  Although we find them fairly quiet, many breeds of fish grind their teeth and or make noise with their swimming bladder in order to communicate with one another. Angelfish are extra fun, by communicating their social standing within the tank with the chemicals in their urine. To read a little bit more about how this works, Click me!
