I am moving this weekend and my girlfriend and I each have a cat. Can anyone give any tips on how to help them make the transition somewhat easily? I have read about the process of keeping one in a room and the existing having the run of the house and slowly introducing the new one, smell first and then letting them find each other on their own. Should a similar process be used since it will be a new environment for both of them? Should I use 2 separate rooms, switch room, then gradually let them take turns roaming the house?

Here is a little background on the cats:

Malcolm - 3yr old neutered male. Around 8lbs. Is a little jumpy in his behavior. has only been around other cats a couple of times and tends to stalk them around the house.

Casey - 2yr old neutered male. Around 12-13lbs. Pretty laid back personality. Has been around another cat once about a year ago and didn't really seem to care that the cat was there.

Here is a great website: http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Pointe/9352/owners.html
.....if you scroll down to "Introducing A New Cat Into Your Household" you will find several helpful links for successful introductions.
