Last year, I adopted two Tabby sisters. They were seven months old at the time. They have settled in nicely, and play peacefully together. I have been approved for a third cat, which we have plenty of room for, and need some input about the breaking in period.
My two Tabby cats are now going on two years old, and rather shy. The new cat is seven months old, and very Alpha. When I got my two Tabby cats, I kept them in my home office for the first week or so, and that worked out fine because they had each other.
With this new cat, a Torty, I don't want to leave her alone in a room by herself all night. I think, from her personality that she will meow and carry on. If I make the bedroom her space at first, this will mean kicking the other two out for about a week. They do have plenty of other places to sleep in the rest of the house, but they always end up on my bed towards morning.
Should I just leave her alone in my office, with food, water, litter box, scratching post and heated bed by herself, even if it's all night, or let her get acclimated in my bedroom and exclude the other two from the bedroom until she gets settled?
