So we have a black cat (there's the problem, right? [her name is Poe]) whom we've had for about three years now, and she's about that age. My wife just brought a new cat (over one year old [her name is Scout]) home Saturday before last and Poe is not getting along with Scout...at all. They've gone at it a couple times even with us being as careful as possible to introduce the two, but Scout doesn't care for Poe, she's super chill in all aspects.
We've kept Scout in one bedroom with her litter box and food and she sleeps on a towel. Poe sleeps on a towel at the foot of our bed, for the most part, and eats on a towel, and we have switched the towels between the two, for acclimating to the scents or something, I suppose. When one was roaming around the house, the other is in the same bedroom. It's becoming a bit of a hassle keeping the two separated, and why can't we be friends?
Any info on this process is greatly appreciated. I know Scout is brand new to the family and it might take time, but I wish Poe wasn't such a b!tch at the same time
Thanks in advance.
