Been 6 Months, am i selfish to rehome her?
im back with more cat stories about jade and azores. azores being the queen and jade the newbie. i really really love jade and i want to get a third cat to sort things out but hubbie says no to third cat unless some certified cat person says its ok.
so its been 6 months. their interaction had escalated to more violence. then dwindle and its back at medium level. azores makes an effort to walk past jade and ***** slap her. sorry thats the best way to explain it. its like shes thinking "im walkin im walking im walking, oh wait a tic, i just walked past jade, i need to give her a good thrashing." *wack wack wack* "ah now where was i? oh yes, im walking im walking....."
there in this stage now that jade is now defending herself. azores will *wack wack wack* and jade is like *thrash thrash run!* ill see jade chasing azores smacking her and they are really close, jade wacking azores about mid waist. when azores stops youll sometimes hear a moan and they stop, or keep fighting, and sometimes they stare and they break up. now they do this with jade chasing azores and azores chasing jade though usually jade is the one that howls to get azores to stop.
is that play fighting? i dont recall it being that way.
i also think that when they have that session jade goes pee somewhere besides the litterbox because before that started she peed like normal.
in between the beginning and current fighting trend they would walk past each other with the moaning, and azores would huff and puff. i think that period lasted about 2 weeks. thats when i thought "oh glory it is done!" but no it started back up.
so here are my questions:
-are things getting better? do you need me to give you more examples? with jade fighting back is it getting worse?
-would bringing in a male baby black kitten (love black cats love em male love kittens lol) make azores stop being some pimp with the b!tch slapping?
-should i rehome jade (take her back to the shelter) and bring home a pretty black male kitten?
-if so should i literally leave with jade and come back home with another cat that day or would that give azores a nervous breakdown and she starts pooping in the bed?
-the feliway, rubbing towels, flower essence stuff, time out in the spare room so they can reacquaint all seem to fail. did i fail?
(somedays i want to take azores back lol, but never in a million years...or kazillion.)
also jade isnt what was describe at the shelter. it should have said "shy timid cat freaks when you touch her, does not like belly rubs, tolerates being held for awhile but turns schizo and scratches you as she flees, if shes scared she pees elsewhere, is truly a scaredy cat and likes to laydown places where people walk and when you step on her she looks at you like "how could you"" instead of "loveable cat loves to be held and petted, gets along with others."
