    Part 2 (kind of???) on introducing my cat

    I just thought of something I should add! I did not know Hunter had the cyst on his neck until Mars bit it right before my roommate left on a trip. I actually freaked out because I thought the lump was an abscess from being bitten and I was so so worried!! But that's also part of my concern--...

    Part 2 (kind of???) on introducing my cat

    Moo and Hunter chase each other when Mars isn't around, while Cleo (8, Hunter's sister) is not a fan of any of the other cats or of playing. I am not too worried about her though because she lets Mars know not to bother her and he leaves her alone (I've heard him chirping at her and pacing while...

    Part 2 (kind of???) on introducing my cat

    Maybe this is right as well, I still am heavily considering moving out so Mars can get a friend coser to his age. For now keeping him in my room might be a good move since I am only not home for maybe 3 hours a day. But I keep bouncing between decisions because every experienced cat owner I talk...

    Part 2 (kind of???) on introducing my cat

    Ahh okay 😭 Mars is my first pet and my first cat so I am not the most experienced when it comes to stuff like this and I freak out a little. Thank you for this, I think I will increase his playing time and let him out after longer playing sessions so he's more calm.

    Part 2 (kind of???) on introducing my cat

    The cyst is gone and healed now, and watching how Hunter has interacted with Mars today (let Mars out for a few minutes while I made breakfast) when Mars bites him or tackles him Hunter doesn't hiss, just makes this chirp-squeak sound. However, it's clear that he is uncomfortable with it and I...

    Part 2 (kind of???) on introducing my cat

    My roommate's cats were there first, and Mars got there a few months ago. Right now I write this from my room because Mars tackled Hunter trying to play so I scooped him up and put him in my room. Mars has a big cat tree in the corner of my room, with lots of scratching posts and hiding spots...

    Part 2 (kind of???) on introducing my cat

    I posted a thread a few months ago detailing me introducing my cat to my roommate's cats. I've made lots of progress but I kind of am at a standstill as to how to integrate him fully with them. A huge boulder to this process happened a week or two ago, where Mars (9 months, my cat) nipped Hunter...

    is there hope for my cat to blend in? am i doing this right?

    Hi! Sorry for the late reply, finals season has been the worst. But I have so many more updates! Hunter and Mars can be seen together most times throughout the day, Mars has even tried to groom him when they nap close together! (though Hunter is having none of it yet, swatting him away every...

    is there hope for my cat to blend in? am i doing this right?

    I have made some progress in the past week that makes me feel a little more hopeful! Mars and Hunter are getting along really well now (considering). Hunter puts up with Mars' constant pestering to play and even sometimes plays with him! Mars can be seen trotting after Hunter all throughout the...

    is there hope for my cat to blend in? am i doing this right?

    Yes actually, I bought a feliway friends diffuser for the introduction because I wanted things to go as well as possible. Its downstairs, in the main hub where the cats usally hang out. I have also been giving them treats while Mars is out. They dont react negatively to his smell, as I can pet...
