    Struggling With Play Time

    Oh my goodness the pictures. How adorable is he?!?!?!?!? Yes, his body language looks good with the cats. Thanks for the pics!!! Yes, they aren't cheap and they are complicated. And then you have to figure out how to get them on a computer. Yes, we would need hand holding. :( And with Covid...

    Introducing new cats

    "When I leave the house, Indy goes back in the bathroom with the door closed. I wouldn't leave them unattended at this point, gates or not." - Excellent, very good. "Maybe I'll swap them around tonight, and Duncan can be in the hallway, Indy in the bedroom." - Sounds good if you think Duncan...

    "No, Duncan was done. He'd eaten, and he was ready to get out of the area like last night." - Awesome. This is great. "Oh, ok. Maybe I'll just put the sheet back down when I let Indy roam." - So the sheet was not blocking the view during this? Wow, if so it is even more positive than I...

    Struggling With Play Time

    Interesting. Maybe I will try one at some point. It is just a bit scary to be honest. Computers are very foreign to us. Sometimes when a person gets to a certain age the hassle is more than the benefit. :/ GSs are pretty smart so I am guessing he will. Yes, dogs will do what Stella does. In...

    "Last night: "I got them both set up, and they both ate immediately." - Perfect. "Maybe 5 or 6 minutes later, Duncan decided he was done eating, and he was ready to leave the area. He walked around my feet into the hallway and stood my the LR/hallway door. Indy kept eating," - Perfect. I...

    Struggling With Play Time

    :( SO frustrating. That is good you learned. I don't have pictures either. I never got a digital camera and my old regular camera died years ago. :( I really should but the learning curve is just too much for me. We are not good with computers. Yes, I remember some things but surely not enough...

    Struggling With Play Time

    It is really frustrating. I don't understand why. Especially when I am helping on an intro and it is really time sensitive. My memory is not so good anymore so I forget who I am helping sometimes so I really rely on the alerts. That is great. I wish I would have done that on all mine in the...

    Introducing new cats

    "pfft No. I had a super tough workout last night, and I passed out by 8:30. They were lucky they even got food last night!" - That is fine. Wow, good for you for getting through the workout!! I am just impressed you workout let alone tough ones!!! "I will try that next time." - Or in a few...

    You didn't try last night? "I'd say it lasted anywhere from 5-10 minutes before I cut it off. Nothing happened, but I wanted to leave it that way." - That is good. Positive. "Duncan ate his breakfast immediately, and so did Indy." - :yess: :hyper: :clap2: This is PERFECT!! EXACTLY what we...

    Arghhhhhhh, I never was notified of this update. :( Agreed. It is good to have a record. Yes, but it is good he is coming out more AND Si will get used to him. Yes, plans are plans and animals will do what they do. Your plan is good though. Of course, Frost is making it tougher. They always...

    "Cautiously, but he's the one who chose to go into the hallway." - Makes sense. Ok.

    "Well, Indy was breathing, so.... :lol: I think it was just seeing Indy, mostly preemptive." - Hahahaha, yep. Actually that is good. Duncan is learning that Indy is not just after him. Duncan's changes in how he responds to Indy's sight, actions, etc will be very telling going forward. "Duncan...

    Introducing new cats

    "Tonight: I played with Indy for about 20 minutes, while I waited for Duncan's meds to kick in." - PERFECT!! Exactly right. " After, I gave them each food." - Perfect. " Duncan immediately ate tonight, and he had his back to Indy various times. Indy also ate with his back to Duncan." - This...

    Introducing new cats

    "Oh no, he was just chilling, no bunny kicks. This was when he was trying to get in the bedroom to get to Duncan's food. I kept my hand and arm up. Every once in a while, he would just flop over or lie down and watch Duncan." - Awesome. THAT is REALLY positive. Tells me he doesn't fear Duncan...

    Introducing new cats

    "Indy would either fall on his side or just flat out lie down with his feet in front." - Did he do any "bunny kicks"? How they do it tells us a lot. So cats do that and it can be very positive (as no cat would expose their belly as they are VERY vulnerable). If I saw it I could tell in a second...
