As you can see, Chloe is adorable. She and Dragonheart have become best friends. They were allowed to meet after Dragonheart's congestion finally cleared, and they now get along wonderfully! Chloe is actually very good for Dragonheart - she has him playing like he hasn't played in months! So she has been a very positive addition to the clowder, as far as Dragonheart is concerned.
Chloe and Merlin get along just fine, although Merlin just mostly ignores her. Sadly Merlin is starting to slow down, and isn't interested in playing, even with his favourite toys anymore. He is still a happy guy, always purring and wanting to be with our dad, but he just doesn't have the energy he used to. He still seems to be enjoying life, however, and doesn't seem to be in any pain.
Unfortunately, Chloe and Devi do not get along. Devi has attacked Chloe a couple of times, scratching her before one of our humans could intervene (they are always supervising Chloe-Devi interactions). Poor Chloe then hisses at her, understandably, and starts growling. Hopefully they will eventually learn to get along. Our humans are getting tired of sleeping in separate rooms (our mom with Dragonheart and Chloe in the master bedroom, and our dad with Merlin and Devi in the spare bedroom). We've tried spraying Feliway, to help Devi stay calm, but she just doesn't seem to like having a kitten in the house at all. We've done all of the "right" things they say to do for introductions - playing paws under the door to start, rubbing the kitten with a towel and then letting Devi have her scent, introducing them with playtime and treats for each, etc. They may never be friends, but hopefully they'll be able to co-exist peacefully!
We hope all our friends are doing well. We miss visiting you and hope we'll have to time to do so again soon!
