I am sad today ...

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. :(

    1. Thanks. We're going through the lovely lady who we had her from originally and it's possible the same person who has her brother might be interested in her, so fingers crossed.

    2. Having to give up a pet is never good, but I'm glad you've got someone who can help you find her a good home.

  3. Sorry to hear that. The same thing happened to my friends. They had three cats, and one just refused to get along with the others. I hope you find a good home.

  4. That's too bad. If I didn't live so far away, I'd say I'd take Fi. Hubby's been wanting a cat anyways. Good luck with finding her a new home.

  5. It's probably a bit late in proceedings to make suggestions, especially since I know you've been trying already. It just seemed like the timing of this coming up in my Facebook feed tonight was a bit coincidental, so I figured it couldn't hurt to leave the link for you. http://youtu.be/gZrwcoiy_gY
