Life is getting back to what we like to think of as normal here at my house. Ivey and I have called a truce we are not friends as of yet but I do not flee the room everytime I see her and I can follow mom around again now even when Ivey is in the room with her.
Sigh, mom is glad to see things settle down. we heard some kitties take years to get where we are, and she is not sure she could really do years of this. Her stomach gets tight and worried for me or anycat getting stessed over the "newcat" Right now all of us get along in tolerance mode with Ivey cept little boy he is still running from her but tonight he slapped her hard and left a little mark on her nose. WE understand this takes time, but let me tell you all doing time here has not been fun for us. Wonder do other pawrents feel that stress when a new kitty is introduced to the home? Everytime there was a spat mom got that yucky feeling that made her wonder "did I make a mistake?" well we could have told not to do it if she would just listen, five cats in one house is more than enough. Moma and daddy love their moemoe kitty and did not like to see my sassy catsonality turn to fear, it hurt moma's heart to see that fear in my eyes and then I would look to moma like "what now?"
I know Mummy and Daddy sometimes worried about Mayflower when I arrived.. I tried to be good but I always wanted to play and Mayflower doesnt like playing!! Mayflower and I have a truce now, if I get too annoying she bops my head. But if I sit still I am allowed to sit close to her.
I bounced right in and took over after a couple days...however, mom says that older cats can sometimes take longer, especially if they are very territorial. I'm lucky that my brothers and my sister put up with me and even enjoy my playing. Bella doesn't like me and Natalie hisses, but other than that, we're coping.
mom and us are so glad you're working with Ivey and not scared!
Wees understands. Panda drove mees nuts for awhile, nows wees ignores each other, unless we gets too close. DEN, comes de hissing !!! ( glad daddy doesn't understand cat, ors i'd get mys mouth washed out, and so would Panda!!!)
My mom is going through a similar thing too! My brofur Dexter has been here for 3 weeks today!!
I think Dexter is a toy, and I want to play all the time. But Dexter does not like that. At first he runs from me. Then he`ll meow & hiss a little.
When I don`t get the hint, Dexter turns around & stares right at me. If I don`t leave, he smacks me on the head, or he`ll bite me. This part makes mom really nervous. Because she wants both of her boys to get along & learn to love each other.
Love & Purrs,
Well, I am the Hissing Queen, anytime Snow looks like he's going to pounce on me, which is pretty often because he's a kitten. He treats me like a toy.
It is great that it's settling down for you, mommy gets a little twisted over the hissies, too, but eventually we gotta all work it out for ourselves. Luv, Tink
so glad things are settling down for you.....i am sorta glad that it is just me and I don't have to stake my territory....oops I forgot I am a ragdoll, I am not agressive...MOL
