Cinder is in a separate room, she has never been in such a large space in her whole life, I put a cat perch near the window so she can see out. after 2 days she learned how to get up on it. now a favorite place. She has not jumped up on the bed I think she doesn't know how. She will let me p[pick her up & purrs but doesn't want to stay in my arms for any length of time. She lets me brush her & seems to like that. but never for any length of time. It takes time to get her to come to me but then sashays around my feet.
Andi is just shy of 4 years, a very loving cat follows me everyplace, possessive She has our routine down solid. She had been very close to her brother & I would have acquired a companion for her sooner except for family problems. Yes I think she knows something is up. but does not hang close to the door of the bedroom where Cinder is.
That is why I thought maybe if I got the baby black cat he might be able to teach Cinder to play & with 2 of them Andi would not have time to concentrate on Cinder.
Need advice I am sure this will take some time. I have had numerous cats before, but Cinder is scared. Why do people not like black cats? I actually adore them. Many years ago I gave my son a black kitten for his Halloween birthday. That started my desire to rescue any I saw in trouble but never had one like this. She really is a sweetie as is Andi.
Thanks looking forward to your advice.Judy
