When Thumper met Cosmo...

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hi all, sorry I haven't posted in a bit been a crazy couple of weeks. Hope everybody had a wonderful turkey day. I did!!

They finally met yesterday and all I can really say it OMG. Ive introduced dogs and puppies before and its like. smell my butt ill smell yours ok lets play. With these 2 its such a hoot with their personalities. They sat about 2 feet away checking each other out did a couple of circles and some smelling. cosmo decided ok its time to play and it was on.

It was in the living room, then the kitchen, then the stairs, then the bathroom and all over again. cosmo had his tail up pretty quick and thumpers was about half way. You can tell she's being careful. She lays down in front of cosmo and of course he pounces on her and if he's to much she hisses and he backs off.

On the second meeting they were more play full and thumper chased cosmo up the stairs then the next thing thumper was flying down the stairs with cosmo chasing her. here are some photos

Sorry for the black borders ill fix those later. More to follow

So much for getting anything done today ... They hung out for a bit today. Seems like cosmo wants to play and thumper wants to chill out. She is still getting a bit antsy with him being all playfull, but the good thing is she tells him and he backs off. I just think its going to be a long process. Its funny sometimes she doesnt look that big next to him. He's a puff ball and 2.9 lbs and she is over 8lbs

Smooches


Ill just chew on your tunnel


He is a brave little man


Here I come

I think im going to need a vacation soon. Its so stressful with the kitties together sometimes. Thumper is doing better and playing more with cosmo. They take turns chasing each other and when he's getting on her nerves she doesn't hiss that much just raises a paw and plops him in the head.

So I went to put cosmo in his room so I could feed the both of them. I gave thumper her dinner then cosmo. he snuck out the door and I couldn't find him. Well I got to the bottom of the stairs and he was eating thumpers wet food and she was sitting right next looking at him. She let him eat for a while then pushed her way in. When he tried again she growled at him he moved a few feet away and tried a few more times but she growled. I was so nervous but it seemed to work out ok.

This morning they were stalking each other and he stuck up on her and jumped on her tail. She started running and he held on for dear life. My cheeks are killing me from cracking up. Thumper is getting good at sneaking up on him, then he jumps about a foot in the air straight up

Keith, It sounds like they are doing fine. Remember, Thumper's job is to teach the little one who's boss around here. I used to LOVE when LuckyGirl would pull a "karate kid" move, and she'd sit there with this "death glare" and pull her paw back like the karate kid, and half the time he'd slowly baaack awaaaaay. Other braver times, he'd stick around and get a wap on the head. It never hurt him, but kept him in his place....rightfully below her. And I love the stairs game pic....that is my house to a Tee. ("I'm higher than you, I'm first, I got here before you did!" )

Ha Ha, the death glare. wow you hit the nail on the head. Everything sounds exactly like my 2. The only addition is Thumper looks up at me, then him, then me.

They have been together all morning and doing great. I took his basket from upstairs incase he wanted to sleep but thumper ploped right down in it, well hangin off the front and back. She doenst quite fit but after a bit she gave it up to him.

Even after they have been getting along great for months now, I still heard a horrid noise this morning....it sounded like 2 alley cats fighting, and was a screaming meow loud enough to scare the he** out of me!!! All I know, is there was no blood, and no furr flying....little Louie was scared out of his witts, and would not come out from under the bed, but he was ok.... I guess after weeks of being tormented she was just pushed a bit too far this morning, and decided he needed a lesson....or maybe she was a bit hormonal....I dunno. There wasn't even any scuffle, it sounded more like she got stepped on, only no one stepped on her....so I'm not gonna worry too much, only a little....

Oh, I get the dirty looks too. And last night, my LuckyGirl sat on my tummy (she never does this but DH is away and she's a daddy's girl), and my little Louie the love bug was giving me the most hurtful look ever....

Oh do those pictures remind me of when my two were checking each other out

Well, I think Thumper is doing a pretty good job at accepting her little brother. But of course, he has to know, SHE is the queen at your house. You come second, and then he comes third.

The new pics are adorable. Keep 'em coming.

Things are still going great. They have chilled out a bit more and are either playing or sleeping. The past couple of days ive kept them together all day and just put cosmo in his room to sleep at night. I still think he's a bit young to have full roam of the house like thumper does.

I have food, water and kitty litter on the main floor and also in cosmo's room which I leave the door open and they drink, eat and use each others litter box, which I think is a big move for thumper to let him do that. I give them wet food in the morning and at night. I put cosmo's in the kitchen and thumpers in the hallway and they leave a bit left over and each will nibble on the others till its gone.

I just went looking for them and found Thumper sleeping in the kitty carrier and couldnt find cosmo. I looked in the back of the carrier and cosmo was in there also fast asleep. it was so cute!!! I went to get my camera but then got up and followed me downstairs. darn!

Last night Cosmo grabbed the feather on the stick and ran away with it and thumper was chasing the end of the stick. ha ha

Oh the fun
