He's ignoring me!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Last week on my trip to Petsmart, I stopped to say hello to the cats/kittens. Well, there was one there that looked exactly like the kitty I "lost" a few weeks ago (we found her at work, I took her home, her family called the next day looking for her - I was in tears!!). The shelter volunteers were there that night, I had her out to play and they told me I could take her home that evening.

Since George is my baby , I wanted to think about it - he wasn't all that crazy about the kitten (5 months) in the house - for all of 24 hrs. But this fur ball that I couldn't stop thinking about had been at the shelter for 6 months!! She's long haired tortie colored almost 1.5 yrs old. I couldn't stop thinking about her. So on Thursday night I picked her up.

To make a long story shorter, the two of them (I've named her Ellie May - which is pretty much what I had picked out for the "lost" kitty) are co-existing great for living together for such a short time - much better than I had expected. She so wants to be friends with George, he right now is tolerating her.

Me on the other hand, he's pretty much ignoring!!! When I first brought him home from the shelter he took a while to warm up to me so part of me knows that he'll come around. But it hurts that my baby is having a hard time....please reassure me that it will get better!!!!

Of course he'll get over it. He's just letting you know that "he's the boss." It's good that George and Ellie May are getting along.

Years ago I was living with my mother and my 2 cats. One of them decided to sleep with her. She went on a trip for about 2.5 weeks and when she came back, Spot (the cat) ignored her for about a week.

George, stop ignoring your meowmmy
Don't feel bad, JC & Joey & I have to stay at my mom's for a couple of weeks, & JC isn't pleased at being confined in 1 room. I bought a new teaser, which he sporadically enjoys, but most of the time just walks by it, deliberately ignoring it & me. I wave it till my arm hurts, and he paces back & forth by it, but doesn't acknowledge it or me
Sending vibes that our boys "get over it" very soon
