Allow me to bore you once again with cat shenanigans.

Munchkin appears to be getting worse rather than better. Cobweb mostly only hisses now when Lucy runs at her or tries to get too close, but Munchkin hisses all the time she's around the kitten and growls and yowls, even when the kitten is just sitting still. She wasn't this bad a couple of days ago, so maybe we're doing something wrong.

No pictures of the kitten as yet. She's difficult to photograph, because she's all black (with dark eyes), so there isn't much contrast. Shannon tried to take some pictures of her today, but she was running around too much to show up as anything but a black blur.

The first 3 months when we got maddie, it was all growls and hisses from Ollie. The second three months its was still tense. It took 6 months for Maddie to let us pet her because Ollie had stressed her out too bad. At six months Ollie calmed down too. We finally saw her true cuddlebug, spazzy personality after 1 year. Ollie tolerates her. Ollie doesn't love her. But he will try to play with her occasionally and he won't attack her unless he's in a bad mood and looking for a scapegoat. Sometimes Maddie plays back. She also defers to Ollie on almost all things except for a few key issues. She won't let me bully her for food, she gets all the high places and she won't be bullied off the bed. They get along fine now. Ollie didn't like the high places anyways. Guess which one is Ollie?

Did you introduce them gradually or just put them together? I thought that introducing them gradually would work better than it has been.

We did not do gradual. We just let her loose and crossed our fingers. We had tried the gradual thing when Ollie was a kitten but it really didn't work for him. He was too social, stubborn and loud. So a year later when we got Maddie we did the opposite.

Sometimes it just takes a long time.
