I am unable to send pictures over the internet so unfortunately, you won't receive pictures of the gorgeous and delightful Chloe (now Tui).
She is very happy here and we're daffy with joy having her here. We're learning her likes (cat dancer, paws down the favorite toy) and dislikes (no paper Chinese yo-yo's for her even though that is our other cat's favorite). I can hardly believe she hasn't been here for years. The sounds of her pounding up and down the hallway are so familiar now. She loves exploring every nook and cranny of the house. She is beautiful, alert, intelligent, loving, stable.
Our only difficulty is integrating our 10 year old female cat and Tui. Tui had exactly zero problems with the dogs. But Pipit cat is not accepting Tui's presence yet. We have Tui in a "quiet room" and Pipit is often closed in another room so each perdioically has the run the of house without the other present. We have kitty pheromones running in both cats' rooms. They interact two or three times a day (sometimes unintentionally when one escapes into the house before the other is put in her room). The intentional times, we are armed with toys so they play side by side with separate toys. We'll see a bit of progress in the acceptance by the older cat but that seems always to be followed by a large step backward with hissing, swiping paws, and even chasing. Have you any advice (beyond patience) for helping the two get along, at least as far as reaching detente?
Thanks for the lovely work you do.
