We are moving. We have 2 male fixed outdoor/indoor cats.<br>
We are moving to the house I grew up in as my parents just bought a brand new house, "my" male fixed cat still lives there, outdoors only as he has a indoor peeing problem.<br><br>
I am wondering what is the best way to introduce the 3 of them when we do let our cats out for the first time. There is a big backyard that is fenced (not like that would stop a cat). There is a laundry room with a glass door that the resident cat sits outside or on the water heater box outside and he can see in, I figured that would be good so they can see each other for awhile before they really meet face to face.<br><br>
Any tips or articles anyone knows of on how to do this?<br>

Well, we have an outdoor cat that we bring inside sometimes when the weather is bad. OUr indoor cats are retisant about him. They have a love/hate relationship. I guess that first i would allow them to meet through the windows & doors. If you plan on letting your indoor cats out, it shouldn't be much of a problem. They'll figure out their hierarchy, as cats are wont to do. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
If you feel like ltting your outside cat in, it should be a good time to let them meet. On the back porch or something. I think you'll find them more open to it than you think. It'll probably go with the whole "I want out" no " I want in!" kinda deal.
