unhappy kitty
We introduced Max to Mathilde last night, sans box. We all crowded into my sewing room and let Max out of the carrier. Mathilde set to yowling an hissing and carrying on, and there was one really brief clash that we broke up with spray bottles, and that was it. After that, she hid behind something and cried and Max ignored her. I think she's upset that yet again she's not the alpha -- she did the same thing to me. If Max wasn't FIV-positive, we'd let them loose and duke it out, but we can't risk him biting her. We'll try again tonight and see what happens. She'll get used to him shortly.

He's funny! He's into string, too, but he's much more vicious about it. I tried to play with Mathilde, but she was so miserable she was way off form. It'll all work out, but she's gonna be cranky about it for a while.

I hope the cats will get along and you'll be able to keep Max and handle him being FIV-positive. I hope he can live out the remainder of his life in comfort.

I think it's going to be just fine. Mathilde is just a diva like that.

Once a kitten found me and we temporarily brought it into the house with our rather old and cranky cat. Mom and I got home from work and school and the old cat was sitting in the hallway glaring at the water heater closet. Kitten had scurried into the farthest back corner under and behind the water heater, which was the one place where cat couldn't reach him. And had apparently been there all day, poor little mite. When he came out, the cat just reach out a paw and went SWAT and she sent him flying across the room.
