ACCLIMATIZATION

1. accommodation to current situations or surroundings. 2. biological alterations that aid in one's capacity to withstand changes in their surroundings.

ACCLIMATIZATION: "Many household pets are not prone to acclimation- thus, taking small steps such as bringing along a blanket from home when they are kenneled may help them adjust to their new temporary surroundings."
