Maybe leave a tv or radio on??? The new one is probably used to someone around 24/7.

I also got my "new" ones suddenly so I had a few hissing, slapping episodes to begin with, but now we are settld down to just a few episodes. Mostly it happens when someone rounds a corner at the same time as someone else coming from te opposite direction. It has never gone beyond slaps and hisses. Becuse of the felv issus, you might have to isolate her at first, but ifyou gve her lots of love wen you get home and don't ignore your boy, shouldn't be too bad. Maybe a friend/neighbor could come in for a few minutes each day and love on both of them to comfort them?

Subject: [Felvtalk] Intro New Cat Quick Style

Hi Everyone

Life can be stressful sometimes.

My aunt is going into assisted living (suddenly) and I'm taking her cat. I took my mom's cat, Lucky, last Fall, and he's become part of the household very nicely. This little cat, Princess, is a sweet and mild- mannered little one. I took her to the vet today for a checkup and unfortunately he spied a growth on her tongue. He's biopsied it (so we will know) and I'm picking
her up in a couple hours.

The thing is, this is very sudden and I haven't had much time to prepare. And I'm going to be gone 12 or more hours a day next week (eek). I can put her in the spare bedroom until the Felv test comes back. But I don't want her to be freaked out or too frightened. I'm hoping that instead of a three
weeks, I can try to integrate her in a week or two.

This will make FIVE indoor cats for me. I've never had so many. The vet
said, "Well, four or five isn't much different." Bless him.

What's the conventional wisdom out there? Leave her in the room 7-14 days,
or longer?

Thanks for your input!
