    Same has been going on here. We’ll be closing in on four months soon and still no love between Sammy and Tosh.

    Also been leaving all doors open except at night. This morning, within minutes of the day’s first interactions, there was a fight and after finding several tufts of black fur, it appears Sammy won this round.
    Sammy has also ‘put’ Tosh under the bed with orders to stay there but we all know that won’t last long.

    In my heart I don’t think either one of these guys are cuddle cats and I fear what we are experiencing now could well be life as we know it for years to come.

    What’s funny is how often my wife and I will start a sentence with...
    “Why is he....” and then quickly realize trying to come up with a reason for why a cat is doing any particular action is fruitless. :)

    Thanks Tim. We’re hoping this is problem solved. After his rough afternoon of runny stool Wed. he finally had a normal hard bowel movement this morning, so that’s some progress anyway.

    At this moment the little s*** is biting on my hand while I’m trying to type on my tablet. :)

    CF6C9AB3-73C9-46E9-9694-01016C83F380.jpeg On Monday, we adopted an 8-year-old long-haired male named Jameson. He is very scared and nervous—tied as the most difficult cat acclimation we’ve worked on. He’s only let me touch him twice since coming home. He’s not feral, but clearly has had very bad experiences with humans. Please send him peace and love. I will keep you all updated on his progress.

    Best wishes that you and this cool looking little guy eventually become great friends. Good on you for giving this kitty a chance at a great home.

    He's a handsome fellow. Nice photo of him. I hope things work out with him and looking forward to the updates.

    Now in the progress of fight two of the day between Sammy and Tosh.
    Much of it taking place under the bed complete with growling, hissing, groans, and some weird meollling sounds.

    initially one of the strays i'd been feeding since she'd been abandoned by clowns across street little more than year ago. short while after losing my buddy relented and let her in on probation and seems to be acclimating. dodged being named protocol (as in biting the sht out of me as per protocol) & finally settled on shelby...

    Yeah he certainly is not bored. Plus he should be getting plenty of exercise.
    Keep his weight down. :cat:

    beautiful cat!
    Every cat needs 2 names. Protocol is a suitable nickname.

    upload_2020-1-18_17-33-31.png It was good of you to give him a home. I hope you are able to bring him back to liking humans.

    There is something about this cat that the gf and I just love.
    We cant figure it out. Sure, she is cranky and bites us sometimes when she isn't being petted just right but something about her makes us say, "yes, she bit me, but I obviously deserved it. I love her".

    Wonderful portrait of her, RPK. She's a beautiful girl, and that lopsided ear gives her an extra special bit of charm.

    She’s such a pretty kitty and has that look that just compels you to want to give her a good loving mooshing, but you know you do so at your own peril. :cat:
