Settling in

Today was the new cat’s first full day here. He is relaxing quite nicely. We still haven’t put the two cats in the same room at the same time; the folks at PAWS suggest giving them a few days to get used to each other’s smell and presence. They have done some hissing and meowing from opposite sides of doors, but that all so far. I’ve got several photos to share –

Here’s the new boy on the sun porch. He really enjoys being in among the plants – probably some latent jungle fantasy there.

This was the shot I really wanted to get – showing the impressive plume of a tail seemingly stapled onto his modest body.

Oh, he likes the gerbils. Maybe a little too much! He is utterly taken up with Gerbilann in this picture, and he spent quite a bit of time today trying to get at her and her sister Gerbilee, who resides in the adjoining cage. The gerbils, as usual, sniffed at him with interest, oblivious to his dark intent. We’re considering ways to significantly reinforce their cages or to otherwise modify their living arrangements, so as to keep them living.

Meanwhile, at an undisclosed secure location, Brunswick awaits her opportunity to confront this interloper. Stay tuned!

Thanks :) All credit for the sun porch goes to my roommate CC. She's the one with the green thumb, and that's one of her sewing machines on the right side of that pic, demurely sheathed as an impediment to inquisitive paws.

You done good, Chuck! He's a real beaut! Love that tail...he's like a long-hair wanna-be! Makes me long for the days of cat ownership...ah...someday. For now I'm happy with a couple of guinea pigs. = P

Chuck when we brought Catera's sibling home we kept them apart using a door stop on both sides of the door (as was recommended to us)to encourage curiousty. We had the hissing at the door from both parties, then one day as they were looking at each other Benny walked away and Catera walked up to the crack in the door to see where he went. That was our signal to let them meet and they have been best buds ever since. She even licks his ears! Ugh!
