On Tuesday I adopted a super sweet kitty from another TCS member (eilcon). I made sure April Joy didn't see me bring him into the apartment. I set up food, water, toys, a bed and 2 litter pans in the laundry room. I've been exchanging the towels that cover their beds so they can get used to each other's scents. Their food bowls are on each side of the door so they are closer to each other when they eat. When I crack the door slightly, there is no hissing or growling. But when I tried to introduce them all the way last night, Christopher Cody started hissing. I think he is afraid of April Joy and I need help getting them to be comfortable with each other. How long does it take? Is there anything else I should be doing?
