Esme is still adjusting to Ozzy.
Days 1-5: Esme hides under the bed. She comes out only in extreme
potty litter box emergencies. My little chunky monkey kitty dropped a few pounds from being too scared to eat.
Days 6-7: Esme begins cautiously exiting the bedroom and approaching Ozzy puppy. She runs away when he gets too close.
Days 8-10: Esme stands her ground when Ozzy approaches. He can’t chase her if she doesn’t run away.
Day 11: Esme hisses and bats at Ozzy.
Day 10: Esme realizes she inadvertently taught the puppy to bat at her.
Day 12-15: Esme just lays down when Ozzy tries to play with her, and he loses interest.
Day 16-62: Ozzy switches tactics and tries to jump on Esme. Esme resorts to the left-right-left-right paw bat.
Day 67, 9:08:29 AM: Esme and Ozzy live in harmony. They’re just about to touch noses when…
Day 67, 9:08:31 AM: Pet friendship over.
