New adult oriental cats...
Two weeks ago I adopted two 2 and a half year old female oriental cats. They had been used for breeding but were of no use to the breeder anymore. They only got spayed three weeks ago and I have had them for two weeks and they just haven't settled yet. One of them has started to hiss at me even!
I am making them eat their dinner right next to me or they don't get any to hopefully associate me with nice things, but no improvement has happend yet.
One is ok, the other is bonkers and very defensive. How long until the lack of oestrogen kicks in and they might give me a chance? How long does it take for adult orientals to settle in? Or do they just hate me??
