So Sherman (3mos) has been here three days now. He's very lovey and a total purr-monster when I see him. He follows me around everywhere and loves being in the same room with me (either all over me trying to play or *sometimes* napping). However, if I leave the room and lock him in (He is still being kept separate from Luna which involves another question I have below) he cries and cries. Sometimes he even cries if I'm washing the dishes (he's too small to jump onto the counter..for now!). I'm happy to give him attention when I'm around (in fact he's so cute I can't resist him!) but at night I'm closing him in the bathroom with his little set up so that Luna can have the rest of the house. Also, my boyfriend and I are gone M-F 8:00-5:00. My question is: is this a problem? Should I stop giving him so much attention? Will he become used to crying or finally get used to being alone?
My second question is: He and Luna have only seen each other through a barrier (screen door and cat carrier window) but he seems to be doing most of the hissing. He also batted at *her* through the carrier window. Also, he hissed at her when he was in the bathroom and she came near the door. I've been doing the scent-exchanging thing with a blanket and feliway, treats etc. Should I be doing something else? Any thoughts?
Third: Will he learn to clean his behind better w/o a mom to teach him? (I've noticed he's kinda smelly back there, though not from excess waste...) And once he become friends (hopefully) or sees my cat do stuff, will he learn from her?
Thanks for listening (er reading). Here are pictures of him:
