I usually just stop him either by standing in front of him or if I'm sitting I'll just pet him and talk to him and get a treat for him to chase instead. He's not as fast as he was anymore so I can usually see it and step in."Hello " - Hello!!! Good start seeing a smiley face!!!
"Usually Sapphires door is closed when Fluffy is out. He far too often wants to go try and find her and I don't have it in me to keep following him around the house haha." - Ok, understandable.
"Her giving me a wack was just something she does when she's nervous. It's never very forceful, usually just a warning that she doesn't want to be petted at the time and to leave her alone, at which point I'll just talk to her instead." - Ok, great you recognize and respect her wishes. Great job.
"Things went well for two face to face times yesterday." - GREAT!!!
" In the afternoon, Fluffy did get ready to chase her once," - Ok, how so, did you stop him?
" however she ran upstairs in what, at least to my eyes, looked somewhat playful. " - Interesting. I really think that is her "way". Very interesting.
"No other change. " - Great
"Just Sapphire either growling or hissing at him getting him excited, but not enough yet for him to lunge at her. " - Ok. Can you get video of that? GREAT he is behaving. I just wonder if she is wanting to get him to play..............................
Pretty exciting, sounds great. Hopefully you can do a "hang out" session and see how it goes. Just be relaxed, calm, confident, act like all is well. Try to get one of them to hang with you (safely). Stuff like that. Just feel the love you have for them and let them know it.
They are ready.
Keep up the great work!! Amazing!!!!
I will try and get a video for sure!
