    Thank you very much too. I was thinking of something you said before, maybe in my other thread about yoda's recovery and settling in, about the long slow road to toleration. And my worrisome mind was like I wonder if that's what we'll be facing. Thanks for the positive feedback!

    Thank you so much. It may just be my anxiety and worry getting the best of me. I'm surprisingly okay in the moment at keeping calm and trying to manage them without getting anxious. It's after when I watch the videos back where I'm like oh wow he hissed and I suddenly see them as arch enemies in...

    Omg. I was just in bathroom as door opened and a cat came in. I was on the phone so I was a bit confused but I was like hang on that looks like Yoda? Am I unable to tell them apart now? Then a second cat came in and I was like what??? So apparently I didn't close the door well and we've had a...

    It continued as in, I called yoda's name, he stopped and then I picked up the toy to distract. Then straight to video 3, Yoda continued playing and Charly jumped on chest of drawers. After end of video 3 I took Charly out slowly and he had some treats when the door was closed again. It may not...

    Yoda on couch . Yoda on couch at start, Yoda pouncing on him at the end of this vid The interaction continued after: 3 This only lets me upload as a short which I can't embed. Don't know why. Charly is the one on the chest of drawers. I distracted Yoda with the feather after he pounced and...

    Yoda pounced on Charly tonight and then chased him a bit. I feel like it's getting a bit out of hand or , maybe I just don't know how to handle it. Uploading some vids now.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I love them both so much and I worry too much that it won't work out. I think Yoda went under bed after charly. They act completely normal after each time. Also last night. As soon as the door is closed, charly is the same as always instantly. If it's in the...

    I haven't let them interact today so far. I've spent time with both individually and cleaned up a bit, and plugged in another feliway optimum in yoda's room now (I had it next to the door in main area before). Going to have some lunch with a friend and get myself in a calmer mood. I'll play...

    Yeah there was quite some hissing, tension and chasing going on tonight. They ended up getting away from me and under the bed. I'm beating myself up now for letting it happen in such an uncontrolled manner. I mean, nothing happened besides hissing and swatting but overall the feeling tonight...

    I'm pretty confident Yoda won't attack even if not confident - he didn't attack when we took him to the vet with his injury and he sure was stressed and scared out of his mind. He didn't even scratch me when I caught him!!! He's also never gotten into any fights with any of the cats outside...

    Little Tuesday morning update: So every time I open the door to go in to Yoda, Charly will somehow dash. He wants in there so badly lol. This morning, he got in twice and both times, there were zero hisses, nothing. The "charly in table, Yoda standing over him" situation represented itself...

    Thank you so much for the feedback! Charly did look more confident to me too. He walked in tail held high which I haven't seen him do around Yoda since the start (high tail and relaxed body). After the first vid, where I was playing with the feather with yoda, I went over to the couch and kept...

    I watched so many videos and read books and all that to make Charlys life the best possible life he can have inside :) so I try. Thank you! I'm actually originally from Germany. It's a long story 😂 Tonight went well I think, Charly didn't hiss once or swat. He looked more relaxed to me as well?

    Charly walked in tail held high as Yoda was eating. Then went unter Couch cover. Ignore the numbers, I got confused. They're posted in the right order. Yoda in the middle, Charly under couch cover at the start: Charly exploring while Yoda is on couch distracted by toy Charly eating while...

    I used to have a ferplast Vega, then tried a different one. Charly won't leave it one though. He started pawing at it like crazy after a year or so of using it. He will try everything to open it, push it over, etc and usually succeeds. I gave up for now and went back to bowls unfortunately.
