Ok so heres my situation.
We were given a 3 year old domestic shorthair female. We currently have a 1 and a half year old male ragdoll. --BOTH ARE DESEXED!!--. Abby (the female) was previously around 2 other cats most her life. Alaska (our raggie) however, has not. The only time he spent around other cats, or other animals (aside from our budgie) is when he was a kitten with his littermates.
Alaska and Abby are not accepting eachother very well. Abby has been in the household for about 24hs now. I know, this isnt long enough for them to settle in with eachother, but I would like to know anyway to make the process swifter and easier on lil Alaska. (Though Abby is 3 years old, she is the size of a 4-5month old, and Alaska is HUGE. He is 6.8kgs i think, hes not overweight. She is 2.3kgs.)
It was suggested I use flour, but we are a lil afraid the affect that will have on their mouth and stomach and dont want to use it.
Abby has settled in great. Is eating, using the litter (even though its a different litter to what shes used to) playing, cuddling and miaow.
I dont expect them to be friends, but this is really distressing my Alaska. He almost tore about the bathroom windowcill last night in an effort to climb up and see where she was. She was crying (she was locked in laundry over night, hhim the bathroom) and she is much more agile than he is lol.
