Never having introduced cats to one another, I would love to know your thoughts. I did have 2 Cornish Rex cats that lived together, but they were litter mates and grew up together. Well... Caluga (neutered Sphynx, 1 year old) arrived yesterday evening in his carrier. Because we live in a small, loft-type apartment, it was not possible to confine him to 1 room. He stayed in his carrier for a bit, while my dog came up to smell him. She is GREAT and has totally accepted him right off. Molly, resident, neutered Sphynx, 1 and a half years old, came up to sniff then ran upstairs to the top room. After a while I let Caluga into the bathroom with the door closed for about an hour, and Molly had a good smell through the door. We then let Caluga out and they met one another face to face... lots of face smelling and that sort of stuff. They have been together the whole night ~ I don't think they slept a wink ~ and there has been a little hissing, growling, but nothing too bad. They ate together this morning and no problem there. Caluga used the litter tray put out for him. Molly just follows Caluga all over the place, but doesn't sit with me anymore. Is this OK, and do you think he will go back to his normal cuddly self once he feels more confident? Do you think there is a chance that they could be good mates in the future???
