So generally things continue to improve. While Scsi is still not thrilled with him, she seems to tolerate him much more. He finds himself comfortable enough to want to play, but unfortunately Scsi is not yet willing and either runs or releases the hissy fit when cornered. But they are eating side by side, albeit out of separate dishes. They still have staked out territory, and the bulk of their interaction is hurriedly running past each other to get from one room to another. No sharing of the bed lately. Max has taken that over. We're now waking to many pounds of cat sitting on the chest and licking our noses as opposed to a very lonely cat yowling at the top of her lungs wondering where her brother is and why her bowl is not satisfactorily filled.

Not bad for only 3 weeks.

And I have to say, present and next week included, it is scary how much seems to have transpired in general in the last 3 weeks for me to say that it feels like it's been closer to a couple months already.

So for those of you that follow both my journal and Kimberly's, we decided last night to offload her little munchkin freeloader. :-)

Max seems to be settling in ok. Very curious, very loving, and thus far, not thrilled with the idea of sharing space. Oddly, Scsi is taking a "sit back and watch" approach, and has not, that I've seen, shown any aggression towards him other than holding her ground when he gets cranky. I'm sure it will be a work in progress.

We had him out with everybody last night, and given that I'm a pretty light sleeper, I figured I'd wake to any shenanigans. There was only one moment sometime early this morning, and it was relatively tame. Still getting used to a kitty who is new to the environment and not too scared to explore it. Seems fairly graceful though. For all the places I caught him, particularly the high spots, he never knocked anything over.

Something else that will be a change is that unlike either previous cat, Max has what I like to refer to as an aggressive play streak, though he seems to understand when its time to stop playing. I'll make sure he fully gets that point, since C isn't used to a cat who gives playful nips and taps. I don't mind rough playing as long as the cat understands when its time to stop.

Today while we're at work, he's sitting pretty in the spare bedroom on his own. I'm giving Scsi some time to reclaim her space for a bit. We'll see how it all shakes out.
