RE: Off topic... cat introduction


My older cats don't like it but the two kittens are made of tougher
stuff. You can blow in their faces all you want and they just squinch up
their eyes and move in closer. The squirt bottle works well. But I give
them a verbal "NO" before I squirt and they're finally starting to
listen to that.

Just try a little whisper of a blow in your cat's face.  She'll give you
a
very funny "Hey, knock it off!" look.
