While I gotta say, I LOVE mommy, I am so confused! Well, I had a good day yesterday! I was a DDP (thanks fur helping me celebrates!!!!) and I got a brofur. Mommy told me how nice he is and sweet and gentle, and Mommy wouldn't tell me fibs, but I'm not so sure how nice this dude is. He hasn't done anything ta me, but he shhhure does stink! Like another cat that doesn't live here! And then MOmmy stinks like tha stinker MOL! SHe's still giving me as much love as she always does, only I don't wants much of it right now. But I am getting treats, yum!
So, that's what's happening right now. Mommy talks ta me and I chirp and sometimes I answers in a hiss and then I want her ta scratch my ears, just ta show her who's in charge. Is this normals?!
Yes sweety, that is completely "normal." Each cat has her (or his) own timetable for 'acceptance' of an added family member.
It didn't take long about a week or two, for me to decide that Sweets was 'ok' and we were all going to get the same amount of love, food and everything that we always had.
Nuk... I liked a lot less. It took 7 months for me to decide that it was 'ok' to eat in the same room as him.
(In case Nuk's and my example seem disheartening.... I just wanted to show how wildly varied adjustment times can be.)
I watched Gabby integrate completely into our family in 2 days.
It all depends on your personality, Harrison's personality and your personal 'timetable' with him.
It's a very rare case when two cats can't work out some agreement to live together. It's confusing at first, that's for sure!
Thanks Angel Taag! Yah, I was much more upsets when Indy furst came, even though we were almost tha same age really. I wasn't mad at all really yestfurday, more just curious at what was in the baffthroom, but now I'm just mad at Mom cause she;s acting completely normal and I'm like...woman! there;s a fur in there! MOL! We is gonna take as much time as we need, fur sure. Thank you!
Everything's normal except for the HISS part!! you shouldn't hiss at ur mom even though she stinks! When New came and Sissy stink like her i never hissed at her though i kept hissing looking at New even when i was on Sissy's lap! But i never Hissed at Sissy!!
I hopes Harrison will be your good friend. It may take him sometime to get used to his surroundings. Maybe your Mommy can try to introduce him to you slowly.
It just takes time and soon the stink will go away and you both will be friends, especially if he is a sweet brofur! hissing is OK it is your way of figuring out things and letting your Mom know you want to be left alone....hang in there it will be better soon and you will have fun with your new brofur!
Very very normal sweet girl! My mommy recommends giving you guys treats close to each other, not too close, but close enough so you associate that good stuff with each other. Also try rubbing a towel on you and then on him and back and forth to get each other's scent on you both.
Good job showing your mommy and tha fur that you're the fur of the house Kitty P.
It's very normal that you're a little upset. Just take it one day at a time and soon the two of you will be friends. I would say that your Mom should take the advice that was posted as these are all great ideas!
When I was upset with Alex, I did hiss at my owner because she smelled of him too....I did take me some time to forgive her and come back to her. Your mom is good with helping you with new adjustments....Both of you will do fine.....Head bumps are being sent your way...
