    Congratulations, Ingrid! This is exciting — you, Ruby and Allegra will be able to reach so many more cats and their people to help (and entertain) them. It’s great to see good people work hard and be recognized as they deserve.

    Congrats Ingrid! I am so very happy for you! I will look forward to seeing some of the posts on here! Maybe I could receive some expert advice right now. I just rescued a 1 year old from a shelter. I already have my 3 cats, as you may remember me mentioning them here. Two of my cats are doing ok with the new addition. A little hissing if he hisses at them. However, My Cisco is having as a hard time. He is nervous with the new one. The new kitten, Sam, and Cisco are doing a little better then when Sam first came, which was Sunday, but I am a little concerned about Cisco. He is not eating like he usually does and not doing some of his other usual behaviors/interactions with me that he usually does. He isn’t aggressive with me or anthing, just not as attentive. I feel bad and was wondering if there is anything I can do to help him. I have been letting them all just get used to each other without interferring much. I do keep Sam in a room by himself right now when I am not there. Sam does hiss, but also tries to play with Cisco and the other cats. I know it takes time but I never expected Cisco to act like this because he has always been the docile one and the one who just goes with the punches so to speak. I want to make this more comfortable for him. Any suggestions?

      Thanks, Viki! You may need to slow down the introductory phase a little. With some cats, letting them get used to each other without interfering works, but with others, a slower, more gradual approach works better. I’d back up and start over.

        Thank you Ingrid! I will try and keep them a little more separated even when I am home. Sam is in a room with the door closed when I am not there. I did try to keep Cisco in the bedroom with me last night but he didn’t want to stay in there.

    Woot! That’s great.

    Now you can tell me what to do about my two cats fighting. One had a $300 vet visit with an infected (bitten) ear; and I was hospitalized (seriously) with a cat bit to the hand. They just won’t calm down. Two fixed males, What have I done!
