Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Reintroducing cat to new kitten
We got a kitten (James) at the end December, but had to separate him from Jack, our resident 6 year old cat, because of a case of ringworm. We just got the all clear today from the vet and encouraged to start introducing James to Jack.
For nearly a month in a half Jack has had that time to get used to James' scent. However, the introductions are going alright, but not great.
Lots of hissing and growling from Jack.
Part of me thinks its because James still smells like he came from the vet.
I tried the vanilla extract thing and dabbed a bit on each of their heads and base of tails, that seemed to work for awhile. They were chasing each other around the house. However, that seemed to be short-lived and Jack went back to growling and hissing.
After about two hours of them together I separated them yet again (just to give them both a bit of a break)
I know its only the first day, but is there anything else I can do to make these introductions better for both of them.
