    New Kitten, Ivy is not happy, PLEASE HELP?

    Possibly. I have a number of other concerns about this process that I haven’t listed here that are also weighing in on my outlook. But observing Ivy’s behavior: the random caving, decreased appetite, and hiding from Star makes me think that this is not going to work out. Ivy continues to...

    New Kitten, Ivy is not happy, PLEASE HELP?

    Update to all following my deteriorating situation: ivy eats but doesn’t drink, I’m going to be putting more coffee mugs (which she prefers to drink out of) around the house. Whenever she walks into my room, whether or not Star is in there, she hisses. She had a moment today where she was just...

    New Kitten, Ivy is not happy, PLEASE HELP?

    I sit with them and pet them and generally try to spend time with them. I’m just naturally stressed so there’s that. Ivy is eating but not drinking, which concerns me. The only thing she really wants is dry food.

    Ivy is now eating a bit and walking around meowing pitifully so there’s that? Just like, long low meows, and she ran up to hiss at my door when it was time for Stars playtime. I think she was pushed too far today. she did eat and all but she’s also very upset and fractious. I’m just freaking...

    New Kitten, Ivy is not happy, PLEASE HELP?

    Ivy hasn’t eaten a full meal in three days, and she’s only using her litter box once a day which is not normal. I really do think I’ll have to surrender Star, because she deserves better than being in my room all the time, and Ivy deserves better than being afraid to come out from under the bed...

    New Kitten, Ivy is not happy, PLEASE HELP?

    So, Star just chased Ivy under my roommates bed. She’s not eating and drinking properly. I don’t think I have the time to dedicate to a proper re- introduction. I think sending surrendering Star back to the shelter (which is a no-kill) might be the best option. she won’t come out now. I knowa...

    New Kitten, Ivy is not happy, PLEASE HELP?

    that could work! Star is 12 weeks old as of now; she’s a little escape artist and her expression is one that says quite clearly she’s never had a single thought and never will. She’s escaped several times and ivy has been close by occasionally and will usually growl and hiss and stuff. I put...

    New Kitten, Ivy is not happy, PLEASE HELP?

    Thank you for the advice! Unfortunately for me AND for Star I might have to start over because Star has escaped three times in the past hour, and Ivy was at best displeased. Star is now crying loudly and Ivy is still upset, so there’s that.

    New Kitten, Ivy is not happy, PLEASE HELP?

    Hi guys, Not much change on this end, though the vet said Ivy is a picture of health ❤️ She comes and investigates the door from time to time, if she wants me to come do something, but otherwise gives no interest in Star. Star continues every effort to escape, though she has learned to jump to...
