Sasha did not want another cat. She liked her position as the diva with various minions to serve her. She was not happy when Gus showed up.
She hissed and got growly but never aggressive. She’s not that kind of cat. She was disappointed in me and wanted me to know that. Then she discovered that Gus occasionally needed some treats to help come out of his shell. Sasha likes treats and sat right next to him in line for her share. It also meant there was more food out. Sasha likes food. Maybe he wasn’t so bad as long as he knew his place which was firmly below her. Now they are often together. She has taught him a few bad tricks and he has returned the favor.They share secrets and wash each other’s face. The grays just shake their heads but secretly they are pleased that Sasha has someone to play with and let’s them nap peacefully. Young cats do well with a playmate close to their age.
