And she doesn't respond to treats, she doesn't care for food. I was able to handle any of my cats in the past...But not her!
Chichi, Has "Chichi" the cat responded to food/treats at all? That's what I was most concerned about with Cassie. I am still in the embryonic stage of intros -- about 2 weeks now they have been socializing day in, day out -- and yet, Cassie who was a BIG eater before, it takes a lot to get her to her food bowl. She eats, and even jumps off her perch (she is the "surveyor" LOL) to be bribed for treats. But she is not happy with Napoleon. It doesn't help that he wants to play 24-7 and she wants to chill!!! Even this morning, she was laying at my boyfriend's feet in bed, and he was chilling, not even harassing her (which he's good for), and she started to growl a little. I guess he was too close for comfort. The thing with Napoleon is that he doesn't care -- he's not afraid of anything! Cassie is a bit shy and let's you know when No means NO!
I gave Cassie a little bit of food this morning, sprinkled with catnip, which she LOVES. The issue is that Napoleon eats all his food then tries to tackle Cassie's. So he HATES catnip (only to play with, not to eat) she loves it. I was in the other room and heard her chomping away at her catnip-laced food, which was great for me.
Forget children, I am raising two cats! Enough for me!!! LOL
