Well, It's been a while since I've stopped by. Things haven't changed with the cats. I still have my 3 girls in the bedroom. The resident cat still hasn't accepted their presence and doesn't seem to care unless my cats step out of the bedroom. I've been studying the old cat and I have the feeling that the old cat has diabetes and I don't know what to do about that. She's so old and I can't afford to take care of her. I feel really bad, but she's not my cat and I don't feel it's my place to up and take the cat to the vet. Not to mention pay for anything that she needs. Honestly, I wonder if the vet would suggest putting the cat down and that is definitely not my decision. I've tried every suggestion with introducing the cats that I've read. The feliway diffuser, the feliway spray, a screen door, mixing sents, crating one of my cat in the middle of the room. Nothing seems to work. She's still aggressive. One of my cats snuck out of the bedroom last week. The old cat ended up chasing her down and brawling with her. Somebody peed themselves but, thank god nobody got hurt. I've also noticed that since I've stopped trying to get them to get along, the old cat's issue with the occasional inappropriate urinating has stopped. I've kind of given up on the whole thing. I just feel bad that the old cat may be sick and that my girls are stuck in a small bedroom.
