Hello Animalkind!

So it'e been a week-and-a-half that Sunny's been with us and what a crazy few days it has been... He started out in his own room, where we ran him around a lot every day, occasionally bringing him out to the main part of the house in his carrier to get his big sister comfortable with his presence. There was some hissing but overall they did ok... Kitty is generally very single and independent anyways, so we expected her to be pretty crabby.

By Friday, we let them together in the same rooms supervised, and she more or less put up with him. Lots of hissing but nothing exciting. He would go between submissive and totally clueless :)

Unfortunately, on Saturday Kitty became quite sick, after breakfast she started to throw up. She had a bad tummy and throw-ups til the evening, when she settled down and came to bed with us. She seemed ok but then Sunday the throw-ups started again. We kept the two separated, and then took Kitty to emergency. After a lot of tests, they put her on an IV and said she had food poisoning :(

She came home Monday evening and we kept the two separated again. Sunny doesn't like being alone - we kept him very exercised at night so he would go to sleep but he cries in the morning when he wakes up alone in his room. I get up early-early to play with him for over an hour before going to work, then Steve gets up when I leave and plays with him more.

Finally today Kitty seems to be much better and we have put them together again tonight. They're pretty much the same as they were last week, he runs around and she sits on her chair and hisses sometimes.

Here are some pictures!
