Well after waiting 2 weeks, the ASPCA finally called! Grayson had been neutered that morning and was ready to come home. Thankfully, I was already planning on going to Lima, OH. that day so I was already there with my pet carrier just incase such occasion were to happen.
The first 24 Hours:
Well the first 24hours went about as well as could be expected. I set the crate down and let Lulu sniff it for a while, then when she seemed okay I let Grayson out in an isolated room with her. They sniffed and lulu watched everywhere he went. She was not really thrilled with him. Then as time went on she started growling and hissing if he came too close to her, but he was smart enough to take the hint and back off. I set up Grayson in my room and lulu kept her bathroom to herself. So they each had their own place to feel safe.
That night I had friends over and alternated one cat in a room one out with us. So they could get a break from eachother.
Then to sleep I put Grayson in his crate in my room next to my bed and let lulu sleep in bed with me. Though she choose the furthest spot from Grayson as physically possible. He had no accidents in the crate and has had no accidents at all actually. He slept fine and so did lulu and I though I woke up a few times to check on them both.
Today I went to the library for a while and let Grayson in my room and let lulu roam the house. They did fine for a few hours. Then I came home and they have been sharing space ever since. The hissing stalking and growling got less the longer they were together. Eventually they both passed out on separate couches.
Days to Come:
I plan to keep lulu sleeping with me so she feels like nothing has changed. Tonight she wanted to be pet in bed with me like normal (the night before she didn’t wanna be touched) so I take that as progress. They will be separated when I am not able to supervise for a while but once I’m confident they will not hurt one another they will be together.
I think lulu will like not being alone so much once she gets use to him.
