Alice and Slink Make Peace!
We'd had 7 year old Alice for two years before we decided to get another cat. We did our research and planned to get a kitty a little younger than her and to introduce them slowly.
But humans don't choose cats, cats choose humans!
When Slink chose us, he was 6 months old. After weeks of trying to help the two kitties get along, there was still a lot a fighting. Slink was rambunctious and Alice didn't like it. We started Peacemaker and daily play therapy for both cats.
Bedtime was the always the worst, Alice stopped sleeping in bed with us because of Slink and we found we couldn't get to sleep because of the cat fights. We even sprayed the bed with Peacemaker every night and set up a box with a blanket for Slink on top of a table at the foot of our bed. I also made sure we had about 20 minutes of playtime with both cats before bed.
Peacemaker and and daily play therapy helped both cats learn how to interact positively. Alice is now as cuddly as she used to be and everyone is now sleeping in the same bed peacefully!
