She hasn't ran away in quite some time (I believe the last time he pounced on her was the last time). At most she'll just start to look more tense (hunched over, tail wrapped around herself, etc), or she will move to another spot a little further away from him. I would say she's fairly relaxed 75% of the time as long as he is being good and he only seems to get excited when Sapphire moves closer to him or to a spot he can't see, or when she hisses at him."I do wish she was a bit more assertive with Fluffy, although he may see it as play from her." - Well, she will figure it out. I am sure he will view it like that unless it isn't serious. BUT I get a sense she kinda wants to wants to play with him so I think she is in a bit of "limbo" land. :/ It is working albeit slowly. But as long as we get there that is all that matters and they are almost there.
"Things seem to be going well for the most part." - Great
" I did the usual breakfast and dinner together last night and this morning." - Great
" Fluffy is starting to ignore her a bit more" - LOVE IT!!! SO helpful!!
" and she isn't seeming as nervous or tense and will sort of move around a little bit more and come a bit closer without any problems." - FANTASTIC!!! Exactly what we want to see and a direct response to his good behavior.
" This morning, she let out a tiny tiny hiss but that was it." - If that is it that is GREAT!!!
"A little later in the morning, I brought Fluffy out from upstairs while Sapphire was resting on a dining chair. He just wandered a bit, several times right passed her (me keeping an eye on him of course)," - AMAZING!!! THAT is so helpful!!
" and she looked a little bit nervous." - Understandable. BUT the amount of nervousness is key.
" At one point he did get more focused on Sapphire and he started to get excited and she started to growl and hiss at him from up on the chair," - That is fine. Sounds like she handled it pretty well. Exactly what we want to see from her.
" so I brought him back upstairs before he got too excited." - Great. So she didn't run, etc? Great!!!
"That's all for today " - Hahahaha, "that's all". Too funny. THAT is FANTASTIC!!! THAT is a GREAT DAY!!!!
Keep up the great work!!!
