We came home with a new kitten on Tuesday night. He was my Christmas present and to be a playmate for our younger cat Pooka. Well, the first night we let the other cats (the girls) sniff the new guy through the carrier. Well Trinity hissed and ran off (exactly as I expected) but Pooka sniffed but didn't hiss, so we decided to let them meet face to face--well he loved her immediately! He walked right up and tried to head-butt her! That was when she hissed. Just a little too friendly too fast. We put him in the separate room and loved on the girls to reassure them. The next day Pooka wouldn't leave the door to the new guy's room. So we let him out to play. He and our Dachshund (Poe) just started playing immediately! We were thrilled. The new kitten was afraid of our mutt (Mikomi) but has already gotten used to her (by this evening) The little boy still wanted to love on Pooka or play with her. She was more tolerant this time and by the end of the day she actually played with him a little! Then today they have done nothing BUT play!! When we put him in his room she cries for him until we let him out!! I'm ecstatic!! Two days and she hates to be separated from him!! He was definitely the right kitten for our family!! Trinity is even tolerating him!! She normally hates any new animal for at least a month. This evening they were both sitting in my lap! I am just so happy!! He is also very attached to both me and DH! I am hoping that by the end of the week they will cuddling!!
