We're Friends

When new animals come into the family, it is always a concern how the resident animals will take to them.

Kashka, our old lady, will tolerate any new arrival, as long as they don't want to get too close.

Now Tugger, being a youngster himself, we were hoping would be friends with Rumple Teaser. Within a couple of days, they were chasing each other round the house. They especially found 4am a good time to play, using my bed as a means of getting from one side of the room to the other. Tugger was very gentle, and played with his claws well away.

It has taken Rumple a little more time to learn that it is much nicer to play with claws away. Though she is good most of the time, she will forget from time to time.

Now the breakthrough in their relationship has came this week. Not only do they play together, they now sleep together. They are quite often found sleeping together, which is what we wanted. Long may this friendship last.
