Good luck!  We just brought a new cat home to keep merlot company since
yang died of felv in June. We are keeping them isolated, the first two days
were some growls through the door at each other, but it's been two weeks
now and they pay under the door.  We're keeping the new girl, zoe, separate
for so long so she can fight off anything she's carrying from the shelter
(coccidia and uri confirmed) and so the vaccinations we gave her can build
up immunity in her system.
