I really have no idea how to go about anymore. Somehow In my apartment I cannot guarantee them not 'bumping' into each other once a day. And everytime the hisses from Singa.
The rest of the time she is just sulking in a corner. I'm really not sure what bothers her most.
She only hisses at her when she SEES her. But it's more that she is scared than her having issues with her territory or anything. She hisses and backs away and in the end runs to a room in which the kitten has never been (the study). There she will lie on the office chair and stare into space or sleep, looking completely depressed. Even after we locked away the kitten she will be in this mood most of the time. Running around the house with not the slightest sign of her previous energetic self.
So it seems that she is also turned off by the smell as well. She will usually stay away the area to the the guest bathroom (including my bedroom which is right at the end of the small corridor where teh kitten bathroom is). If she ever goes there she will sniff a bit and roam about in her depressed way. When she smells the kitten on me she will try to keep away as if disgusted - but usually she doesn't hiss.
So I tried the following. Letting kitten (I think I'll call her
btw) run around the house while Singa sleeps in the study with closed door. Singa is not impressed.
I try going to Signa for a big cuddle directly after the playtime with Soleil (with her smell and all). She doesn't really want to cuddle with me having kitten smell all over the body.
I sprayed Feliway around the bathroom door area (they don't sell the electrical thingy in Singapore I think). Singa hates feliway I think. She looked disgusted at least.
I tried feeding Singa in close to the bathroom door with her favorite food, so she will associate yummy food with kitten smell
, but she won't even touch the food there.
I bought the vanilla thingy today, but I have the bad feeling that that also will fail. Shall I permanently put it on both? Or just when I want them to meet? I really need dummy-proof instructions on this please!
I really have no more clue what to do
- I have the feeling Signa just doesn't like Soleil at even if she ever gets used to her, she will tolerate her but not more....
I really need some motivation....
