Panda came to live with us a week ago, when our neighbours moved and had to make the hard decision to leave her behind (they were elderly and couldn’t take her to their new place in a new town). We always said we weren’t going to have three cats, but our neighbour wasn’t able to find a home for her, and we’re just push-overs for a cute cat. We knew Panda quite well already as we’d always looked after their cats for them when they went away.
It’s been a little bumpy with the rest of the animals, but no major fights. She has put her iron paw down – which is ridiculous as she weighs all of about 4 pounds! But she is at least part Siamese, and she is used to getting her way.
She won’t let Chika anywhere near her, although we have tried to tell her he would be her bestest friend. He’s a lover, after all! Poor Hubert is totally cowed by her and stays well out of her way. Someone forgot to tell him he’s at least 4X her size! There is hope for her and Torti, although they hiss at each other a lot they have gotten the closest in proximity.
Panda is 3, so she is quite a bit younger than the rest of the crew, and is a bundle of energy. She is very affectionate with all of us and quite social.
But I really never thought we’d be a 3 cat household!
