    Help/Advice for introductions

    It's been so long that I don't really remember what she was like. She did sleep a lot and I think I mentioned that after I returned to work in early 2021 after being off for 10 weeks she started having some seperation anxiety issues which was the main reason we wanted to get her a companion...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    I'm not really sure why she acts the way she acts sometimes. There is definitely something there, but I'm not sure what. It's quite confusing that I don't know what to do to solve it. Last night was mostly the same. Once I brought Fluffy downstairs she quickly went upstairs before I let him...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    I will see how she is once I go back to work. I know she sometimes goes through these phases. I'd say overall she's not afraid of him. Maybe anxious or still cautious. As for outside, there is nothing I am aware of. There were some deer the other night but she loves to watch the deer. I'll keep...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    I apologize for the late response! For some reason I thought I had responded already. To my knowledge there wasn't anything that would have spooked Sapphire and it's possibly just a mood. She's been acting oddly for the passed few days now. She doesn't eat her food at her normal times, and will...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    I do hope that it was the moment that helped! Nothing new to update however. Sapphire didn't even come downstairs last night and just stayed in her bed. Prior to giving them their first dinner, Sapphire was hiding underneath my clothes rack and she barely touched her wet food. I just assumed she...

    She seems to be handling it much better than the previous time. I'm so happy she's not terrified of him like the last time. I was quite upset that I was so clumsy and let him chase her and escalate it. If I knew better I would totally say she wants to play. Maybe she does but she's just not...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    Everything seems to be fine so far and I don't really see Sapphires cautiousness increasing at all, maybe even decreasing a bit. I left her door open again yesterday morning and she came to sit on the stairs and watch Fluffy. The body language, at least that I'm seeing, is curious with maybe a...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    I will continue to see how Sapphire is acting. Prior to the chase she was still quite hesitant at times so I really didn't see much a difference this morning. She was hissing and growling less and less so if anything that was the biggest change this morning. Fluffy is due for a yearly checkup...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    She seemed back to her normal self quickly last night and was playing a bit upstairs. She didn't seem too bad this morning. I left her door open instead of closing it and she came and sat on the stairs and watched Fluffy for a bit. She did growl and hiss somewhat but that's not really unusual...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    Hello! For the last few days things seem to have been going fairly well. Sapphire was less hissy and growly than usual and Fluffy was pretty good about 75% of the time, usually just laying down or wandering off. Tonight I had another accidental incident unfortunately. As I was opening the gate...

    Yes the video we after sapphire got scared while he was playing :) I brought them out together for a brief second time today for a special treat upstairs. Nothing negative, but Fluffy did try to lunge at her twice but I was able to stop him.

    Help/Advice for introductions

    I took a video last night while Fluffy was being good upstairs before he got a bit worked up. Nothing really exciting to update. I noticed that when I was playing with Fluffy downstairs while Sapphire sat on the stairs, she got scared of him playing an ran up to her room. Maybe a bit of fear...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    I'm just wondering if there was anything else I could be doing to try and help them get more comfortable? Things have still been going pretty well. Last night overall was fine, nothing negative happened. Fluffy did get worked up when we were upstairs and really wanted to run at Sapphire but I...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    I decided to try a little test tonight to see if Sapphire would come downstairs after Fluffy went to bed. Sure enough, I think when she hears the baby gates go up in the hallway as I'm getting him ready for bed, she's down about 30 seconds later wanting to play. He was near perfectly silent for...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    Thank you :) Fluffy has gotten way better over the months with his biting. It used to be that he would start biting within minutes just because and now I think he just does it mostly when he wants something or has built up energy. If he wants to go downstairs to his room and I'm ignoring him the...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    I hope they can keep getting better! I haven't gotten around to getting Fluffy a calming vest yet but hopefully soon. Sapphire so far has just been laying in her bed upstairs when I've been bringing Fluffy out so I've been letting him lay in the hallway upstairs with me but nothing exciting has...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    She was unsurprisingly a bit cautious in the evening, but not as much as I expected she would be. She was already resting in her bed when I brought Fluffy from my room to his room downstairs, and she did come down briefly. I always feed her first, so when I was bringing her food she ran upstairs...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    I did have to quickly use a treat to redirect him and block him from chasing her. She seemed a bit scared when I went upstairs but she was the one who went to him and he just thought she was playing so I just ignored it. Fluffy was also very much in hunting/playing mode upstairs when she was...

    Help/Advice for introductions

    Thank you I'm feeling much better! We had a minor "incident" about an hour ago but I think everything seems well. I brought Fluffy downstairs to hangout with Sapphire and was playing with him with a rod and feather toy while Sapphire watched from a distance. Out of no where she ran towards him...
