question about cat introduction
Hello there cat lovers!
Our 1 year old, Dale Cooper, has, since yesterday, the company of the 3 year old Garland Briggs.
After one night and half a day of separation (with crack under the door for paw play) and no hissing, we opened the door. All seems to go fine, Garland is a really easy, gentle man, doing his own thing, sniffling Dale a little, but thats it. Dale, on the other hand keeps following around, swatting at his bum, no chasing, but definite stalking.
When we put them in their separate rooms again, Garland starts meowing until we open the door to let him out, back to Dale. Then the whole thing starts again: Garland doing his own thing until Dale swats at his bum again. Their ears are forward, tales are kinda twitching. Dale is standing up most of the time while Garland is lying on the floor.
What should we do? They are not hurting each other, but is this nonetheless stressful for them? Any comments or suggestions welcome!
