If the above-noted shot looks vaguely familiar that may be because I feel like we've been here before. With three black/white kitties in a row, and all having found the "window ledge" spot quickly and their love of it, it may be easy to become confused (I know we are! *L*).

Oreo is here 1 week today and already has full run of the house. The URI he began experiencing in the shelter, never materialized (thank goodness), and with perfect litterbox habits and a good appetite - not to mention an aversion to being kept in his guest room, we decided to roll the dice and see what his reaction was to our boys. Answer: it's been seamless..............Oreo hasn't let out a hiss or a growl since sauntering past Rocky & Silly initially and in the week past, he's become so relaxed that it's as if he's known them forever. Silly isn't bothered by him in the least and even our Stinkerboy is not his usual super nasty self. It's quite obvious that Oreo likes other cats and that given his age being closer to our own boys, he appreciates the quieter, more sedate things in life and therefore, poses no threat or bullying nature.

However, he is experiencing some issues with constipation at the moment which we're hoping to rectify with a vet visit early this coming week. He also requires dental work so the plan is to address both issues at the same time.

Here's one more shot just in case if you were doubtful of his having settled in already :))


  1. what a relaxed and handsome kitty !! u might want to try 1/8 tsp of laxaday in oreo's wet food daily (once in the a.m. and once in the p.m.). we have 2 have an older tuxedo kitty who experienced constipation and the laxaday works quite well.
