Advice on cat to cat meeting

Not sure if this should be in behaviour or not. If it should then I'll say sorry in advance Things seem to be going well with Cleveland and Millie. Swapping rooms and no one is having big sniffy time anymore. No hissing under doors at each other, love watching each other through the glass, can be up close to each other at glass, eating directly under door. What now? Is it too soon to open the door a little? I'm scared I mess things up. I've printed out the thing from Little Big Cat but I'm a scaredy cat and don't want to set them back

If everythings going great and you can't see any problems at all, i say open the door a crack. Just a lil bit, if everything goes great then maybe let them stick there paw in? If you're still unsure then do what your heart tells you to do.

If you open the door a crack and one of them shows signs of aggression or fear then close it and spend some more time at the stage you're at.

Good luck and best of wishes

Will Millie just escaped the kitchen and walked past Cleveland's kitty climber. He was lazing up the top and just looked at her and never did a thing. No sign of aggression. Will try the door crack later. I'm guessing there is difference between being 4ft above her than face to face

Well we went for the door crack step. He had one hiss at the beginning. The door has a gap of about an inch at the bottom and I opened it wnough that they could bat each other if they wanted. They played batting a ball back and forward with paws under the door. Then he went for a pee ad she wandered off. We opened the door enough for them to get through the door and neither of them were interested. He was playing with a fly and she went off with the ball. Here I was scared to death about this.

Don't forget to put a drop of vanilla on the back of the neck on both cats! I hope all goes well.
