I like this - it helps to know what incremental steps to do first. I try to prepare myself mentally for the timeline; I know what I'll be doing in October, and am trying to picture where the cats will be at that stage. I had planned on keeping them separated for a month before any visuals.You need to work on getting him socialized so you can handle him.
Charlie is 8-9 years old, and this guy is between 1-2 they think. So quite a bit of an age and energy difference. Charlie is extremely jumpy with sounds and sudden movements and it doesn't take much to make him bolt in terror. I think a younger, agile cat stalking him would be the stuff of his worst nightmares. As much as I hate the sound of bells, maybe I should consider collars with bells when that time comes just so there's no sneaking up on each other. I'm going to take my sweet time with the introduction process. I hope it isn't too awful for the young guy being confined to one bedroom, after being such a scrappy little ruler of the outdoors..
