When we first brought Jada home, we introduced her to our place a little bit at a time so she wouldn't be overwhelmed. This is the kitty suite we gave her for her first week with us.
Cozy kitty bed, food and water dishes (the one for food is elevated on an empty tissue box), and a litterbox, which is hidden around the corner of the dryer. The little mat is something we added later for Jada to scratch.
Once Jada was used to us, we gave her the upper hallway to explore and then eventually opened the downstairs to her as well. We'll probably do the same with our next foster kitty.
I'm happy to report that our new guest is settling in very well. Within five minutes of exploring the suite, she had claimed the bed for her own and started making biscuits on it vigorously. Stay tuned for photos very soon! (We figured we'd keep the paparazzi action minimal today and let the girl rest before her debut.)
