Default Rosie and Little Man bonded!

Well, after only 2 days of being around each other 24/7 after the quarantine, I think Rosie and Bowler have bonded. After scolding him every time he pounced, Little Man has decided that maybe he should be a bit more cautious. Two nights ago they started napping together occasionally. Yesterday I noticed Rosie washing him and then him fighting a bit. Today, I watched her groom him head to toe, while he purred and cuddled. Poor little guy--I think I saw him rooting in her neck and kneading while she groomed. The shelter said he was 7 weeks when I got him, but he acts younger.

The best part of all this is that he has settled down with the pouncing and nipping at our hands now too. I think the trouncing Rosie gave him everytime he pounced helped immensely. I also had a water bottle I used a couple times as he chomped on my hands (while saying no loudly). He has settled down well, and today has slept soundly for 6 hours!

One other neat thing--Rosie growled at him 2 nights ago for trying to drink from the water dish while she did. Today they shared the water dish no problem, AND she let him share her food dish.

I think Rosie is now an adopted momma cat!

Aw Denise that's really good news! It sounds as though Rosie is now taking him under her wing so to speak, and Little Man is loving being mommied by the sounds of it.

Pixie accepted Sasha really well when I introduced them luckily, just about a year ago and even though they are now the same size, now and again Pixie still holds Sasha down and grooms her and Sasha loves it!

Thanks! To be honest, I am really surprised how quickly this happened, as Rosie was a stray and we didn't know her history. She had been really anxious and overgrooming before we got Bowler (very sick with hairballs all the time) and I can honestly say she hasn't had the time to overgroom now!
