So I've had the new kittens for 9 days and things are going along well. We still keep the kittens in the bedroom exclusively, I personally think they are too little to be roaming the house by themselves. We've never quite done the introductions as we were supposed to, my husband has a complete lack of patience. Besides, Kinko never seemed to mind the kittens and Chloe could tolerate eating next to them and being in the same room. She just didn't like the kittens coming near them.
Anyway, today I let the older cats into the bedroom for a little while. And Harley just loves Kinko. Whenever Kinko is around Harley is right behind him. For the past 3 days the two of them have cuddled, play fought, and groomed each other with no issues.
Now Sasha has become determined to get Chloe to love her. She'll go up and try to nuzzle which Chloe is not too fond of. Though in recent days Chloe as become more amiable.
Also, well we tricked Chloe a bit. There is this thing she does that is really unique. We found that if you blow in Chloe's face she loves it and will lick the air. So we have been blowing her face with the kittens in front of her and forcing her to lick the kittens. Best idea ever! As she has become far less wary of them.
Here is a pic of my kittens with the older cats. Chloe and Sasha are on the left and Sasha just about forced Chloe to let her sleep there. Harley and Kinko on the right were off to dreamland in no time.http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...409&id=2512653
So keep up the patience! It will happen. I just got REALLY lucky with these guys.
