Making progress with Benny

Benny has been so good with Ringo, and they have even played a few times together already.  It's hesitant, but no hissing or aggressive behavior. I managed to get one blurry shot of them playing on the cat tree. Ringo is fascinated by his "big brother" and follows him everywhere. Benny has been so patient with him.



Sadie has not wanted to interact with Ringo yet. She's made a bit of progress in the past couple of days, but generally stays away from him. I've been praising her, giving treats, and letting her retreat as needed. I think in time she will adjust.

Good job Benny. We have noticed here that even with so many fosters, Ivy is about the last to decide that the new kittens are ok.

Cute 'tock shot of Ringo. :-)

Yep, most of the time it's the females that have problems with the new arrivals. Good luck!

Ringo is a kitten on the move! It sounds like you've got great progress between all three really it's been such a short period of time. Glad it is working so well.

It sounds to me like everything is going well - even with Sadie. She is just slower to come around.

some people fail to respect that staying away is huge progress for a cat.. Their life is all about territory and making sure they have enough of what they need to get by. By not continually challenging Ringo she is saying, I have enough, thank you, you can have that over there..

hopefully soon she can enjoy Ringo and enjoy his kittenish ways..

Are you mooning us, Ringo? You sure have a cute butt. So good to hear everyone is making progress. Ringo will win them over. It's cute how he follows big brother Benny around.

That is great about Benny! In time, I am sure they will both adjust!

Action Kitten! That's so sweet that Ringo and Benny are hitting it off. 4 years later I'm still holding out hope for my girls!
