We Are Making Progress

As the cats continue to get to know each other's habits and territory, we are making progress.  Lexi is far less combative.  YaYa is still timid about joining in, but this morning she jumped up on the bed, on her own to jin the rest on my bed after breakfast.  This act is major.  No hissing, no growling, just laid down and took a nap.  I fought hard to contain my excitement over this; I slowly picked up the iPhone and made a couple of quick pictures. I couldn't be happier with how well they are doing.

We still have a long way to go.  I have found out some troubling information about YaYa & Gomi's past situation.  Neglect and abuse, no matter how slight can affect a pet's psyche for years.  The two have developed some habits reflective of their neglect that I will have to work through.  However, I am hopeful I can provide an environment where they will finally feel safe and loved.
