behavior/safety question

The white cat is our older cat, the room
We are in is her room. While the gray cat has always been in our bed room but lately i've been encouraging him to go out of my bedroom and explore the whole house. I noticed he likes to go into the white cats room. What do think? Is it safe to leave them alone and let him
Visit her room? Both of them are spayed.

Both of them being desexed it should be fine but I'd suggest watching them for a while to see if they can stay together for long periods of time without fighting too much (if it's just a bit that's normal and shouldn't be a problem) keep in mind play fighting also often looks like normal fighting but that's unlikely until a bond is formed. How long have you had the grey cat? From the 2nd video your white cat seems uncomfortable around him. If they're at the point where she's just hissing at him alot and maybe starting fights if he gets too close then they should be past that stage of getting to know each other in maybe a month maybe more. Anyway it should be fine to leave them alone but probably not for too long at first in case they start fighting.

thanks! The white cat is about 5-6 years old.
the gray one is about 2 years old , he's been kept in our bedroom for almost 2 years and its just now that i encourage him to explore the whole house, both of them almost have the same attitude. they are both skittish towards other people .

I'll trim both their nails, the grayone i regularly trim his nails as he still sleeps in my room, but the white one i need to trim her nails.



not sure why he seems to be really curious and likes to go into the white cats room.
I'm hoping they will get to know each other more and so can play with the white cat.

I have another female siamese which is really close with this gray one.

I noticed the gray cat likes to go into the white cats room. When he got,out of our room tonight, i went downstair, and later i found him inside the white cats room. They were not fighting, he was just sitting near the window while the white can was on another part of the room. Is this a good sign that they might get along?

Have not been observing their interaction, not sure why my gray cat likes to enter the white cats terrotory everytime i leave open the white cats room
Door. I will find my gray cat inside, but the white cat will just be hiding. Im hoping this doesnt stress her out too much and they will soon get to know each other.

I think your grey kitty is behaving normally. He of course wants to check out the other cat, white kitty. Sounds to me like the gray is interesting in the white cat, but that the white cat is afraid of the gray cat. I wonder if finding something that would calm your white cat might help. Do you have available to you products like Feliway diffusers, or Bach's rescue remedy drops?

thanks, I don't think drops are available here.
the white cat is quite timid and is spooked easily.
she also doesn't play now, before she used to play with her daughter and used to be an outdoor cat.
but i moved her indoors now and she has her own room.
Gray cat would visit her in her room and she would just hide while my gray cat investigates.

I'll need to trim the white cat's claws just in case , the gray cat has his claws trimmed regularly as he stays in my room.

would it be a good idea to just leave the white cats room open so the gray can can visit her ? but i don't want to stress my white cat too much too, hoping she will get used to the gray cat.


i tried a laser pointer and a feather and the white cat will make a sound like she is afraid and just go hide.

so sorry their adjustments are not easy. I honestly don't have much experience with two cats, that is new to me in the last few months.

I wonder if adding a high safe space in white kitty's room would give her a place to safely observe without having to fully hide.

It is hard when you see your cat unhappy. I hope others on the forum with more experience will jump in here with some more guidance.
