    Giving new cat enough time away from kitty base camp?

    Ok I'm sorry for the lack of clarity. The fights were two weeks ago. The furthest we have gotten is scent swapping, they have not seen each other since the jail break. We are being extra cautious when we swap them, I am trying to figure out: A. Am I being overly cautious by only giving the new...

    Giving new cat enough time away from kitty base camp?

    Thank you all so much! So basically when we feed them between the door it is fine, she will hiss once and a while but not much. The main issue is he wants out, we have everything set up for a kitty base camp (towe4s toys, food etc.) ut he still can't be in one room all day. We let him out for...

    Giving new cat enough time away from kitty base camp?

    We adopted male cat, Jellybean (a little under a year, he'll be 1 next month in August). We have an 9-year old resident cat, Ruthie. Long story short, weeks ago Jellybean got loose twice (I'm not proud of it) so we had to start the intro process all over. We've been giving him "yard time" (it's...

    Do people have pictures of how they did the visual step of the introduction process? Live in an apartment so need ideas

    So Jellybean is almost 1 so almost an adult =) but she seems to do ok she's not thrilled but she is coping. We were thinking about testing out visuals this weekend and if it goes to ship going back a step. Almost 0 hissing from her. I hope if we make them smell the same it will be cool. They...

    So far we've had some mild hissing from Ruthie but Jellybean just wants the heck out of his base camp. We've been giving him "yard time" (it's a personal joke) for at least about an hour and maybe 20/30 minutes a day? Ruthie is almost/is? a senior and loses her goshdarned mind. It's all she can...

    cat proofing door knobs?

    I might be insane but I think one of our cats knows how to use rounded door knobs if he is motivated enough. Do those toddler proof door knob things work for cats? How about ways to reinforce the door from the outside that don't involve construction?

    Sorry for the spelling errors by the way, I am on mobile. I just want to do this right and the two jailbreaks plus the fights have not made things easier. Our resident cat actually lost her buddy a few months back and we noticed she has not been doing great as an only cat. We picked Jellybean...

    It was a legitimate fight blow times as there was fur and sweat on the ground. Its been about 3 weeks since then and we have gone back to scent swapping and feeding with the closed door between them for now. She still eats and vocalize but isn't too thrilled about the new frenemy that moved in.

    I'm less than proud to say that when we picked up the new cat in August (his name is Jellybean), he did a runner twice on my husband and I (we had locked down kitty base camp but apparently had some design flaws), both times I think he wanted to play and then our resident cat (her name is...

    Thanks for your reply, one is 9 years old, female spayed, she is the resident cat, and the other is a kitten, he'll be 1 years old this month, fixed.

    Ok, so we are close to the visual portion of the introduction process. I'm wondering if people have pictures or links to what they might have used? A baby gate is not going to cut it for us because our boy can jump (really jump). We can't really install a screen door so I thinking of using one...

    When do i move on to the next step of the intro process?

    yeah I guess we are trying to figure out if it is baby gate time if that makes sense? The problem with a screen door or baby gate is we live in an apartment so we cannot physically put anything onto the walls or detach the door to install a screen door so I'm looking for something temporary =)

    When do i move on to the next step of the intro process?

    We have had New Cat (NC) for about a month now. We had to restart the intro orocess a couple of weeks ago (about 2?) because NC made a jailbreak from cat Basecamp two times and got into it with our Resident Kitty (RC) Fur flew we separated the two ASAP it was unfortunate both times, we have...
