    Introducing new cats

    "I had to buy him one of those slow puzzle feeders because he would INHALE his food. He's got the hang of it now, though. It's still a challenge that will keep him busy." - Perfect, exactly what I was hoping. When we do the visual doing it during feeding time (when they are hungry so they...

    Struggling With Play Time

    Interesting. Could be? I don't know. No, you don;t want to lose that ability!! Yes., that is fair. Yes, lives tend to go in different directions as we age and effort has to be made often. Distance can become irrelevant. Sounds like it should work out. Hahahahaha, yep. It happens that way...

    It does happen but I think it went really well. Of course we don't want this to happen but it does and we dream the result would be like this!!! Like you said it happens fast and it is like a blur. BUT here is what I like. Duncan's initial reaction was not to attack. GREAT sign!! You ended it...

    Sounds good. "He found his reflection in the stove again, so he had to stop and check himself out. lol " - Too funny!! "He also jumped on top of the armoire." - Yep. Actually I think that is a good sign as going high (Height) builds confidence. "He's got "I'm a handful" written all over...

    Struggling With Play Time

    Yes. I didn't realize allergies may impact the ability to fight off illness. Interesting. Hopefully the allergies go away while the immune system stays strong. Yes, that is the hard part. Of course visiting is nice but travelling a distance is hard rather than going across town. :/ :O...

    They really seem like they are amazing. And they are absolutely GORGEOUS!! Seriously, they are stunning cats. "I just woke from a nap on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Duncan was snuggled in nice and tight, so I put his food and water in the bedroom and released Indy. He's wandering around the...

    Struggling With Play Time

    :) SO TRUE!!! I hope so too!!! The body is pretty amazing. It can be pretty adaptable. That is really good news they don;t spike as much in the spring as they did previously. Fingers crossed you are on the road to continued improvement. :( I know. It is hard. But once you get another...

    Introducing new cats

    You are welcome but thank you for all you are doing. Ok on work etc. That is great and helpful. It is especially going to be helpful getting the intro'd sooner since there will be some supervision. Most people only have weekends where they can monitor etc. Perfect that the days are pretty...

    Introducing new cats

    The gate looks great. We'll hang something over the top to block and slowly adjust it so there is some visual at the bottom (when the time comes). "My dad and uncle came over this morning, so I put Duncan back in the bedroom and let Indy out, so they could meet him. None of us was sitting, so...

    Introducing new cats

    "I don't think I heard one hiss all day yesterday. In addition, I was getting ready to head into the bathroom last night to give Indy food/water/scoop his box, and Duncan immediately followed along to the door. He stopped and sat, as if to say, "Well, what are you waiting for?" I finally had...

    Struggling With Play Time

    As in Germans? Hopefully a small group. Seems against the German culture (from an American perspective rightly or wrongly).Germans seem to tend to follow in lockstep (of course a total stereotype and there are always outliers everywhere). I don't get it. All the science tells us that masks help...

    Struggling With Play Time

    So true. Adaptable is good in my opinion. Hahahaha, I know. Doctors................. I fought through all the allergy problems. Then for some reason my body adapted. Whew, I was lucky. Yeah, I wonder maybe it helped in not making them worse? I think you are probably correct (sadly). There are...

    Took In Two 1 Yr Old Ferals

    I never got an update notice on this. :( I was wondering what was happening. This is a MUCH BETTER update. Whew. Fingers crossed all continues to improve. I am glad Marshmallow could hold the food down the second time. I am SO GLAD Rabbit passed the bubble. Whew. That should help. Also, try...

    Help with injured stray

    I really do not believe you should feel guilty at all. I know it is hard emotionally, we want the absolute best. But sometimes the best that is possible is best. If he was really unhappy, suffering, then I think we would have to think of something. But he seems to really enjoy playing in there...

    Introducing new cats

    Bummer. What we will do is put one set at ground level in the door and one set above that so no one can jump over. Then hang a blanket or sheet (I like thicker) over the top and hang it down. I put their food down and then slowly lift up a inch or two to start distracting as needed. When the...

    Struggling With Play Time

    SO TRUE!! YOU are so wise. And that thinking extends into all aspects of life really. Well, maybe. I think you are right, it would be hard. Each person has to do what they think is best though. I was very allergic to cats when I was young. My body then corrected that thankfully. I was lucky. I...

    Introducing new cats

    "The paw under the door and Duncan's growling has happened a couple more times, but every time, I saw Duncan's name, and he always come trotting right over, and I can hear him purring before I even pet him." - That is fine and his being easily distracted is great. That tells me that he isn't...
