** Update on New Kitty **

Well, first, we changed his name ... totally by accident. He was hiding under my bed this morning,
and I accidently called him Charlie, and he came right to me. Jumped up on the bed and started
licking my face and then curled up next to me on the bed. So it looks like his name is now Charlie !!

All three cats have been roaming free since yesterday morning and there have only been a few small
hissing and growling matches, mostly between Freak and Charlie. Scooter doesn't seem to care about
the new kitty. I still have the middle room all set up as his "safe room" and I think he knows that he
can go there if he needs to because he runs for that room when he gets in a hissy fit.

So far, DH's plan of letting them roam free seems to be working, but I still keep a close eye on all of
them when I am home and I make sure I don't show more attention to any individual kitty. I played
with all three last night together with Da Bird and they loved it.

So far so good Thank you all for all your advice and help.

Here are some more pics

Can't go wrong with Charlie for a name. His little face is so cute.

Re: ** Update on New Kitty **

Glad to hear you're making progress. Charlie is just adorable. It looks like his orange coloring is kind of a muted orange, not a sherbet kind of orange? Murphy's the same way -- he's more auburn than orange.

Thanks everyone !!! The vet said he is the picture of health and all the girls at the clinic want him!

Still having some little tiffs here and there, but nothing major at all.

Re: ** Update on New Kitty **

Hi Anne - So glad to hear that things are starting to work out with Charlie and Scooter and Freak. I know you've wanted an orange tabby for a long time You know, they may never totally get along well, but over time they will learn to tolerate each other. They'll all carve out their own "territory" and will learn to deal with each other. Heck, we've had Monkey and Jet for two and a half years now, and our old FuzzButt STILL hates them both. There is hissing at least once or twice a day, but then they each turn around and go their own way and it's over with. The two boys will never be friendly with Fuzzy, but they have learned how to live in the same house and share the same humans, so all is well in their world

Andi

p.s. My scaly critters say hello to yours
