"Ebony and Ivory"...with cats

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. As some of you are aware -- and I'm so grateful for everybody's help and encouragement -- we recently became the proud owners of two enchanting and gorgeous Ocicat kittens called Chas and Pherber.

We were a little concerned about how they would integrate with Chelsea, our nineteen year-old Persian but I guess we needn't have worried. I was able to photograph a turning point in the relationship this morning and would like to share...

What a fabulous photo!!! I bet Chas and Pherber love snuggling up to all Chelsea's warm fur - I know I would!

Don't those moments give you the reassurance that you made the right choice?

It's not exactly "Kumbaya" yet but it's definitely live-and-let-live as they carefully negotiate territory.

The CFA web site describes Ocis as dog-like in their sociability and devotion to their people and this is definitely true of our two. They are tremendously affable for cats, they adore company and I think these qualities have enabled the transition to go well. All they seem to want (apart from her food) is Chelsea's friendship and the old lady is beginning to feel more curious about them and less uncomfortable.
