Between

Hi. It's Abby. You know, I am still scared of this new creature living in my house. It's always downstairs. However, Ms. C does not seem to be afraid of it. In fact, she was downstairs reading on the bed for a lot of the evening, and so I followed her. I searched all around the room and could not find that Other Cat.

Then I looked up! I often forget to do that. There she was, sitting comfortably on one of Ms. C's shirts. She was watching me. I am still not sure what to think, I might not be happy about this, but I feel very curious. Very.

Hello, it's me, Stygia. I'm still staying downstairs for now because it's safer here. I am still pretty depressed because I miss my family, my old Mom and Dad. The Lady Ms. C let me nap with her this afternoon -- she placed me on her belly, and I did not object. I stayed there, facing her, keeping her warm for a couple of hours. She patted me and brushed me, but I cannot yet bring myself to purr.

This evening, that Other Cat (her name is Abby) kept following Ms. C downstairs to my room. She did not see me for a long time because she does not look up very often, but she sniffs around and looks under everything. She is also not much of a jumper or climber, although I am.

When she saw me, she stretched up towards my position on the dresser. She hissed once, and Ms. C chided her so she stopped. After staring for a few minutes, she started rolling on the floor, showing me her belly, and making small trills. I must admit, I am confused by her conflicting messages!

That's a really interesting angle for the shot of the two of you. Did "Ceiling Cat" take it?

It sounds like you are already making good progress getting acquainted. I am sure you will be the best of friends very soon! And think of the fun you will have playing together!

Your Pal,
Sen-Chan

It just takes a little bit of time until you both get used to each other. It sounds to me like the introductions are going well!

Dear Stygia,
Give it some time sweetie, I think that you have a great new home. I know that you must miss your old home, but this home has lots of love and a sister!
Dear Abby,
I think that you might like Stygia if you give her a chance!
Smooches!

I just learned about your new addition! I'm sure you'll be friends soon enough. Its sad that her old family could not keep her, I'm sure she's very confused about that.

We think it's just a matter of time. Stygia, it must be so hard to get used to a new family, but it's nice to have siblings to keep you company (Mommy made me say that).

Hi Abby. It looks like there have been some big changes since I was here last. I see you have a panther ! Cool!!! I hope you two will be able to come to a happy arrangement. Just take it slow and it will work out :)

Purrs Mickey

We hope that the two of you start to feel more comfortable together soon, but don't worry if it takes a while.
