As some of you know, DH and I adopted the stray cat that had taken up residence at my Bil's business. DH took her for her spay yesterday. He brought her home this morning and I met her for the first time. I named her Daisy. She is approximately 1 year old, though very she is very petite. Her coloring is black with copper mingled in - she does not have distinct patches of color. I was very excited to meet her and things were going well at first. She let me pet her and seemed friendly. I even picked her up and carried her back to the litter box, just for future reference. She didn't try to bite or anything. Then she met Speck. He screamed like a panther and growls every time she gets anywhere close to him. She growls at him, but backs away. Speck is not a mean cat and I figure he will adjust in a few days. In an amazing first in cat politics, Siamie and Speck are actually sleeping cuddled up together under the dresser. I guess this is a show of solidarity against Daisy. Here's the problem: Since Speck and Daisy's introduction, now she has grown hostile toward me. She's tried to attack me three times. If I get anywhere near her, she starts to growl. I don't know what to do...I speak softly to her and she growls and hisses. I am now afraid to try to pet her. I am ready to douse everybody's butt in vanilla!
