Ok I admit Iâ€™m neurotic but brought home new rescued kitty two days ago (unknown age â€“ maybe two) who was spayed on about Feb. 22. She (Sophie) is at least part maybe full Maine Coon â€“ I always had ally cats or Persians before so I donâ€™t understand their style. She immediately bonded to me â€“ at the rescue place she begged to be taken home so of course she came home. Also have two dogs and another cat. My biggest worry is that she sleeps all the time and is not very energetic - she is eating fine and drinking and using litter box. She even ate with the dogs lying down outside her door separated only by a baby gate. She has twice "rushed" the dogs hissing and spitting but they fled (she was behind the baby gate at the time). She has explored other rooms though she is currently staying in only two rooms - a day room and a night room - in the morning and evening I let her explore with the dogs and other cat locked up. She is scared of my blow dryer. She lays on her back and lets me pet her under the chin and she stays by me all the time either on the bed or on the couch as I work on the computer. Does anyone think there is anything wrong with this picture. Is she just sleeping because she is recovering from surgery and being out in the cold and then in the shelter in a cage. Thanks - I signed up after reading all the answers here and everyone seems nice.
