See? That's what I wanted for my Aineko and Meshki: to become friends and kee0 each other company when we're not at homw. It is not working out though.... :(


takes time for the old cat to accept the new cat.

how fast were they introduced? did they go through a period of separation and introduced by scent first?

Dong and Xi are littermates, so they know each other quite well. They came into my home at the same time, and helped each other get through the stress of adjustment and the unforgiving Zhonghe winter (I say that half in jest).
This is a highly proper signature.

They're still separated, but whenever I try to introduce them to each other, it's a hiss & growl fest, until one chickens out and runs away. The problem is that Meshki, the new cat, is confined to my rather small balcony. I made it as comfortable as possible for her (3 hideouts, cat castle, a tent, foodbox, litter, some toys and a scratch post), but she makes it clear that she wants out (usualy between 2 and 6 am). :(

Donggua. Xigua. i see a pattern forming.

next we'll see Nangua, Donggua, Segua, Xianggua, Huanggua (although you can cheat and say Cucmber) Hamigua, and stuf.

my cats all have a theme too.

We have (in order of age) Duchess, Disney, Dylan, Didi, Diamond, Diva, and Disabled.

but Disabled is too long, so we call him


































Cripple.
The prizes are a bottle of f*!@#$% SCOTCH and a box of cheap f!@#$#$ CIGARS!

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.

50% of the world's wild animals have disappeared in the last 50 years. Did you eat them, or eat their house?

Do they feed at the same time? Maybe feed them across the separation so they see and smell each other while feeding?

Introducing new cats seems really difficult and requires a lot of patience even if you are doing everything by the book. That's why I won't attempt completing my cafe themed naming scheme for a while.... Latte, Schoco, and Moca simply will have to wait.... (although I've named a nearby stray dog Schoco already....)

5 dogs..Sambuka, Deloris, Roo, Luka and XiaoHua

one cat, Cino. I live in a 4 level place, so the cat sleeps with us and stays in the other rooms, dogs stay on the 1floor only. We have a big 3 level cat cage he stays in when we watch TV on the 1F with the dogs.

if the cat's out of the cage, do they start a world war?

yes, I can't have Cino with the rest of them. I can hold him and they sniff him, but unfortunately two of my brown dogs grew up in the mountain and they are hunters. They are fine, until he starts running.

Lo urgente no deja tiempo para lo importante. Mafalda.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.
