Oh yeah, I've seen them and I've been reading. Since I only have a few weeks left, I'm educating myself now; I will usually research something to death before I jump in. I won't rush any introductions, I just pray that IF I do decide to integrate this little guy, that Charlie and he would come to acceptance by January when I start clinicals so that they could be company for each other when I'm gone so much, rather than being kept separated. I've read several posts that mention around a year for the dust to settle. I'm praying for 6 months!Buffster7 , there are a handful of very great posts here and there about integrating a new cat to a resident cat, and some on getting feral/semiferal/stray cats accustomed to being IN a home, and then letting them meet Mr Resident cat.
Have you seen these posts about introducing cats? some have embedded links to youtube videos, some have articles.
I can not recall if this here 8 page thread has any of those posts about how to help cats meet each other. Slow is the key. Baby steps. No rushing it.
If you have not yet seen these posts from others, i can go try to relocate some of them. They are great posts.
my 2 cents guess is, that the New Cat (did you name him yet?)
will add a lot of joy and fun to Charlie's life. Maybe not at first, but, who knows. It is not 100% impossible that they will have love at first sight, when you ever do get to That point of their introductions,
but, best to go slow.
