Photo Hunt #105: Orange

22 Oct

Look who’s adorable and so ORANGE? Fellow players and blogger chums, please meet the new addition to our household – 5-month-old BUSTER, who we adopted on 10/16/10 and came home with us 10/20/10.

Of course his presence is not making the resident cat, Emma, happy at all. So far there’s a lot of hissing and growling on the part of queen Emma. Buster with all his youth thinks that Emma is playing with him.

I am especially anxious and impatient to get this period of adjustment over with. Reading the pamphlet about adding new cat to a household and talking to people at the shelter, I know that everything takes time. But all the time I am at work I am worried that they are tearing each other up at home. I even convinced my husband to check in on them during the day – given that he works a mere 5-drive 1+ mile away from home.

Experienced multiple cat owners, can you give me some tip and pointers on how to hurry up or ease the transition? Thanks.

This would be the 3rd time since I have joined the hunt that ORANGE came in as a theme.  The first time was 09/04/09 and the second time, only recently on 08/13/10.

PHOTO HUNT is hosted by Ms. Tnchick. Come and join us in the weekly hunt, it’s fun.

    Congratulations! Buster is adorable. Orange cats are wonderful (my oldest cat, LuLu, is orange, and I used her for this theme a while back).

    About the transition….it helps to keep them separate for at least part of the day. And make sure you give Emma lots of attention so she doesn’t feel jealous of him. Go in the room, hold Buster, and then go out and spoil Emma, praise her and give her a treat, and then hold her so she smells Buster’s scent on you. She will start to associate his scent with positive things. Cats do work it out in time (my older girls still hiss at the kitten I got in February but there hasn’t been any bloodshed, just hissing and chasing. And it’s calming down as he calms down).

    Good luck and have a great weekend!

    Your new marmalade kitty is very cute! Hope the adjustment is over soon, and the cats can live peacefully.

    Buster is a beautiful. I hope he and Emma will get used to each other soon. I noticed that orange had been a recent theme too.

    I didn’t realize we had done this before. I’ll have to see what I did then too.

    Good luck with the handsome orange kitty. He’s gorgeous.

    Happy weekend

    we had a sweet rescue ginger cat…found her in the motor of a neighbor’s semi, mewing all night long…took hours to coax the little baby out with her burned paws. Her new brother and sister hissed a lot when she first became a member of the family…but in the end they all loved each other dearly…this was many years ago…and now I miss them all and remember them with fondness.

    You are lucky your cats likes dry biscuits. Once, I help feed two semi feral cats. No biscuits for me, thank you. They tell me. No jellied salmon either. It’s boiled chicken and can tuna.

    who wouldn’t love those green eyes? im sure Emma would eventually find Buster irresistible.:p

    Buster is a lovely fellow and lucky to have found you, and Emma despite her protestations. I am sure that they will soon settle down. They may not become best buddies but they should eventually learn to tolerate each other.

    He’s a cutie. Sorry, don’t have any suggestions. We always got our cats as kittens from the same litter to cut down on the hassle.

    What a cutie 🙂

    I don’t have any advice to give (we only have one cat), *fingers crossed* they adjust quickly for you!

    Very beautiful cat. Annie’s suggestion is a good one. Make sure that you give Emma lots of extra attention so her jealousy is minimized. Also remember that it may look very violent, but mostly the interactions between Emma and Buster are going to be verbal ones. They will figure it out, cats almost always do.

    Buster is beautiful. I don’t have any suggestions. We got litter mates at the same time and they started out great friend and couldn’t stand each other at the end. One is still with us and we want to get another kitty but I just don’t think our 15 year old will stand for it.

    He certainly is handsome!

    Nice kittie! I hope they sort out their differences soon 🙂

    I understand that giving them separate food dishes and even separate litterboxes can really help. That makes sense, doesn’t it?

    What an adorable kitten you have! Good luck with then both.
