We adopted a cat named Chloe yesterday. These first two photos were taken by the folks at the shelter for their website:
This is Chloe.
She’s not a kitten, she’s a teenager I think, probably she’s about 7-9 months old. She was spayed two days before we met so she has a healing cut on her shaved belly.
Linus, Noel’s cat, has been with us for a couple of months. He is here until Noel gets back from a camping trip on Sunday. Then he will take Linus home to Seattle on Monday.
Chloe is smaller and younger than Linus but she’s the tough cat. She was a stray before the animal shelter.
She hissed, spat, growled and chased Linus who ran away. He’s curious, so he kept comingback. It was a semi-friendly game of cat and mouse and he is the mouse. She’s definitely letting him know this is her house and she’s the boss.
She’ll be an indoor cat, as Linus is. She spent the night in our bedroom with the door closed so she and Linus would be separated.
So, today they started getting along after some initial drama with Chloe doing the chasing and growling again. We separated them when we needed to leave the house for a while, and then let Chloe out of the bedroom again when we got home.
