Quick update... they brought their cat over, her name is Tigger. Newton ran and hid - not from the other cat, but he's wary of strangers. He did come out for short moments, stared and sniffed at Tigger while she was in her carrier, then went back to his hiding spot.
As for Newt... lots of hissing and growling when they were in the same room together. But they didn't get close to each other at all. Tigger explored the rest of the home. It was a new environment, so obviously, she was very cautious. But after about an hour, she was very relaxed. She lounged in some of Newt's favourite spots. Newt wasn't hiding, but she didn't come out of my bedroom.
2nd introduction will be next weekend. They'll be bringing a large dog enclosure for Tigger in case we need to keep the cats separated. We also exchanged cat blankets to get them more more familiarized with each others' scent.
