We rescued Lazlo's brother (feral kitties). This was the one he used to hang out with the most. Lazlo's been here a little over a week. We named the new addition Sheldon (Shelly). Shelly purrs at the drop of a hat, and is extremely docile. Lazlo has enormous amounts of energy, and he is extremely aggressive towards Shelly. There was hissing arched backs when we first brought Shelly in, and we separated them. When up in the woods, these two were close, and slept and played together a lot. But now Laz plays really rough. And if Shelly is eating from one bowl, then that's the bowl Laz wants. If Shelly's in his bed, then that's where Laz wants to sleep - after chasing Shelly out. They do play together, and Shelly doesn't seem to mind too much. I've only heard growling once, and separated them, but I'm afraid to leave them alone, and I can't stay cooped up in here. We live an a recreational vehicle (210 sq. ft). Is this too small? Should we find them a home together? Should we find them separate homes? I want to keep them - but I can't tell if they like each other. I thought we were doing a good thing, but I'm scared Laz will hurt Shelly. ???
