Timmy On Tuesday No.2

Hmmm...Number 2....quite appropriate cos Timmy seems almost unable to do his number two's INSIDE his tray! He likes to hang his bum over the side and do his business on the newspaper which the tray sits on. Meowmie even purchased a tray with VERY high sides but he STILL manages to crap over the edge. Next step: covered trays.

So...how are me and my subordinate doing then? Well every day there is some sort of breakthrough. The hissing and growling has died right down, and only occurs if one startles the other, or one of us pushes our luck. Timmy remains a bit grumpy/nervy though so he is the one who usually starts the trouble.

We have progressed from spying on each other from separate rooms, to actually sitting within six inches of each other. We have also started playing Thundering Herd of Elephants - no contact - it is very cautious play, whilst we still try to work each other out.

Meowmie has kept us separated whilst she is not here or when she is asleep - but last night Timmy kicked RIGHT OFF and howled and mewled to be set free from his room. So, at 1.30am. 3.30am and 5.30am Meowmie got woken up and let Timmy out so that we could play Elephants for a short while. Timmy isn't being isolated tonight and will have free run of the house along with me, Meowmie needs her sleep.

Here is progress to date in pictorial and video form, as you will see, I have been very, very, welcoming and patient with Timmy, so long as he accepts I am the Boss, we should get along just fine:


Saturday Afternoon - the cautious 'camel clump'


Sunday Morning - the chilled 'sunspot sprawl'


Tuesday Evening - 6 inches to go!


...and here is Timmy and I enjoying one of first play sessions:


...and here is a Siamese Smackdown

I wonder if maybe Timmy's former meowmie put newspaper in his litter box tray? There is a brand of litter here in the U.S. called yesterday's news. Maybe Timmy would like that??
I'm glad you two are getting along better!

Such great progress! I liked the Siamese Smackdown! You two are playing pretty well together - and it's nice to see Timmy playing, maybe he's finally starting to feel right at home!

Kaz's Cats said...

That's great progress that you two are making! About the newspaper - I (Gypsy) tend to try to use any newspaper on the floor as another litter tray (Mum thinks that I was trained that way when I was young) - maybe Timmy was trained to use newspaper too...

We're confident that you guys'll work it out...

Wow! We are happy to meet Timmy, I think you are getting used to eachother in a very timely fashion. Thundering herd of elephants is a great way to get to know one another.

That looks like wonderful progress! We hope that his first night out went well (and you Meowmie got some rest)!

The Furry Kids said...

Looks like things are going well for you guys! Yay!!!
As for the poo, we don't know. EG does his business in the litterbox, but then gets carried away with the scratching and tends to fling it out. It really grosses mom out. hee hee

Hope Timmy is improving at using the litter tray ;)

Mom and I are making rounds today thanking everyone that sent condolences when my OWCB Texas passed. Thank you, you were a real comfort to my fambly when they needed you most.

Tiger Lily said...

We are glad you are starting to get along better. Ruckus and I still do not like each other very much and Jemima does not like either one of us. Oh well.

Mom finally had time to help us take your dare and post about it today. We donated to the Winn Feline Foundation!
