*sigh* I have those new kitten-grumpy resident cat blues
Not really a question, just looking for a pat on the head.
Yesterday we brought home our newly adopted rescue kitten (14 wks), and I am just starting the introduction process. It's been 3 or 4 years since we introduced Leia (our second) to Lando (the original), so I'd forgotten how much patience this process requires!
It's only been 24 hours, and the baby has been confined to his safe room (although he is READY TO GOOOOO, as far as he's concerned), and honestly, the other cats are doing pretty well, I think. I am trying to give them priority attention, and while they are both a little edgy - minor hissing if they smell kitten on me, and one or two minor incidences of growling - WW3 has yet to break out. No screaming, yowling, or hiding, and eating and playing patterns are pretty normal. The two older cats are even still coexisting as usual ('friends' is not the word I would use at any time). So that's good, right?
I know that all I can do is take it very slowly and give everybody all the attention I can. Still - wouldn't it be nice if I could just plunk him down in the living room and everybody would go nap in a big happy, furry pile?
Edited because spelling is your friend.
