Thanks everyone for the reassurance that hiding under the bed is normal. He has come out from under the bed, & actually slept on the bed w/us last night. The problem is though, he won't leave the bedroom at all. Mia won't come in the bedroom now, & she used to spend about half her life in there. Everytime she walks by the bedroom door & sees him, she hisses. That usually results in Ari hiding back under the bed for a few minutes. I wish that he'd realize that she's just all talk. :)

I am glad he came out and slept with you.


Cat introductions are funny things.

That's good that Ari came out from under the bed and slept with you.

Ari's making progress. That's wonderful and sometimes it does take what seems like forever for cats to get used to each other. I can't add much more to all that's been said, except that I have used treats or catnip for each in their own space as they start to get to know each other (but can see each other). The catnip I found works well at times.
