Overnight we had Enzo in the cat room, and Pecan stayed downstairs in our bedroom, with us.
This morning we fished both boys out so they could be fed together, and they were together for about an hour afterwards.
Pecan was being a sweetheart as ever, and just ignoring whatever Enzo did to him and trying to get on with his exploring, and Enzo was following him around and pouncing on him.
We’ve noticed Enzo is doing far better at ignoring Pecan today, and disengaging himself. He is less extreme.
When Pecan was using the toilet, eating, and a little when he was playing, Enzo left him alone. There were plenty of times where Enzo was sprawled on his side watching Pecan, albeit with an intense expression 😛
Enzo actually played with toys in Pecan’s presence today (whereas yesterday he wouldn’t even look at his toys when I flapped them in his face!), so Enzo was playing with a toy on his own, and Pecan was playing with the flirt pole with me about a foot away
There were a few wrestling and tumbling sessions, but as ever with cats I’m not sure how much is actually play or ‘rawr get out my house!’
There was no hissing or growling, but their ears would go back occasionally. It was pretty slow moving though, and fairly gentle. When I thought it was getting ‘too much’ I’d split them up and they had no problems with that.
Now we have Enzo back in his kitty room, and Pecan has the rest of his house. They can sniff and paw each other through underneath the door, and later today (because we’re going out soon) we’ll put the barrier back so they can actually see each other 🙂
Pecan has continued to be an amazing cuddle bug – SO CUTE!
The head butts and rubbing against you is just delightful and especially sweet after missing that with Enzo. It’s also really nice as Enzo isn’t wanting as much fuss since we’ve added an intruder to his house 😉
Lots of scent exchanging is happening many times a day, not only from them meeting each other, but from alternating strokes, using the same beds, the same litter trays, even the same food bowls!
This is an exciting process for me, I hope it ends with two best buds!
