It looks as if we are going to have to re-home Afia.
We've been implementing the separation technique and everything had settled down, but Fi clearly doesn't like staying in the new half of the house and yesterday she escaped into the old part. The first thing she did was chase Amber and they had a huge fight. Neither of them was hurt, thank heavens, but Amber did refuse to come out from under the sofa for an hour.
They seem to simply be incompatible at a fundamental level :(.
I love Fi, she's a beautiful lovely cat, but Amber was here first and Fi keeps terrorising her.
Amber is not a boisterous cat, Fi is very boisterous and they just don't seem to speak the same language.
I wish there was another way, but I can't see it. I think the separation technique might work for cats that aren't so completely at opposite ends of the spectrum, but not for our two. I am very sad, but I don't think it's fair on either of them to keep this up. :(
