We have had Pogue for a week, I think.. Close to it +/-..
Her and Raleigh have already become great friends..
They are getting along fine..
We have a laser pointer we used to play with Raleigh before we got Pogue, well I started using the pointer to try and make them interact with each other.. It has worked like a charm.. At first Raleigh would hiss at Pogue.. Not anymore.. They have been playing, jumping on each other, and acting like kitties..
I think it has helped Raleigh.. Raleigh used to never let me pet her, I bet I have petted her more in this short week than in the entire 1.5 years my wife has had her..
She still will not let me pet her for long, but I am able to pet her none the less.. She seems like a new cat.. Very playful, not as skittish, etc.. Not sure what has happened, but we like it..
I can recommend the separation technique, however, I didn't use it for but a couple'a three days and it seems to have worked..
