Re: New Garden Pest

Our last cat, Penelope, took a long time to gain the acceptance of  
Jason, cat #2. It was over a year before he would stop hissing  
whenever she approached. (She would wait 'til he was asleep and then  
very quietly lay down next to him!) Even now, it is clear that he  
simply tolerates, but does not really like her.
