After posting the post last night I there was a notable event. Anna was in her little cubby and I let Harrison come in too for a little desensitization. He went right to her wet-food plate which is about a foot and a half from the cubby. No problem, he tucked right in.
Now Anna isn’t very possessive about food, but still he was way inside her comfort radius. But her little cubby has a narrow opening in the space between the sofa and a bookshelf, so she couldn’t easily go out to confront him or even see him. You could see her trying to figure out a way to get out without passing him. Finally she saw that she could jump straight up onto the sofa from the cubby and did so, then got onto the back and looked down on him and did some vigorous hissing, but only for a little bit.
Eventually she went to her shelf by the window, and Harrison came close again and drank from her fountain and sat with me while she glared, then calmed down mostly.
The next morning it was Rhea’s turn. She came in while I was cleaning in there, and rather than let her do her creepy stalking I set Rhea on the sofa about a yard away. Anna wasn’t more than grumpy over it, and as Rhea walked around acting cute Anna tolerated it fairly well.
I broke it off before Rhea pressed herself too close and generated a spat.
Aside from showing up outside the door Davout hasn’t had much of a role so far. He’s as nice as Harrison, if not nicer, but Anna’s hissing upsets him so he’s not as good confronting her. Also, he’s hard to catch.
So with all the potential drama last night and this morning, tonight has been slow. Harrison has been tired, although his other symptoms are better. He did throw up a little puddle of nothing much
