Wow, it's been a long time since I posted about my three boys. Thought everyone might be interested to hear the latest significant development for them. As you may recall, Trevor was just not taking kindly to any of these other feline 'strangers' in the house. I had eventually resigned myself to the fact that Trevor would be the lone wolf in his area, and Bear and Junior would hang out together in theirs; not exactly snuggle buddies, but comfortable enough in each others' presence. I would let them all take turns for snuggle time with me and change spaces in the house so everyone had access to all parts of the house at some point. So everyone had their special places and knew their way around the whole house.

Ok, fast forward to just under a month ago. I come home and I find the, normally closed and locked, door on the lower level OPEN! And three cats milling around to greet me at the door! Wha? How? No sign of blood or injuries? What's happened here? In a state of shock and dismay, I head to the kitchen and lay out three dishes together, serve the food and watch in utter amazement as all three settle in - together - to eat.  Shocked   I never thought I'd see the day!

Now, I know I locked the one door because the lock bolt was still out. It's a pair of French doors to the living room and if I didn't use the lock they could be rattled open. Well, somehow one of the kitties managed to rattle and shake it hard enough to force it open even with the lock bolt engaged; I guess they'd had enough of the separated living quarters. So after that I don't close up any doors anymore. Junior's not overly happy whenever he sees Trevor, and Trevor's no help by purposely trying to provoke Junior but it seems it's mostly just noise (a lot of noise sometimes) between them but fortunately minimal physical effects now. And Bear is in his happy place most of the time. He actually seems to enjoy watching the other two when they get riled up; he'll come running over to see what they're doing. The rest of the time he's just sprawled out, rolled over on his back, looking pretty content.

So I've learned: things are not always what they seem and the impossible may actually turn out to be possible after all.

That's astonishing, like they just decided to work things out for themselves! Cats always have ways to surprise us!

That is good news shadowmice! Sounds like there's still some friction there but at least they are tolerating each other. I wonder who the clever one was?  Grin

My first guess would be Trevor; he seems to be the instigator for most things. I know I've seen him work at the door before; if I was there I'd intercede even though the door seemed quite capable of holding. Whoever it was learned a trick I didn't know about. Clever kitties.

Wow!  That's awesome!  I wish that would happen here.  There are times I leave the house and return moments later to re-double-check that the door separating those who need to be separated is truly locked or not.   Tongue

Congratulations to you guys!

That's great news that they don't need to be separated ! Not so great that they can open locked doors !

I'm glad you no longer need to give them a separate space!  I'm having some space issues myself, but hopefully it's just terrigorial posturing and they are working things out.
