I haven’t had much sleep the past three nights. Thanks to Pebbles and Buttons.
Buttons is still in the second room. But I tried to spend the night before last with him. Except Pebbles wasn’t happy with that and kept me awake from about 3 in the morning. Last night, I slept with her. And she still wasn’t happy because she knew Buttons was in the next room and kept me up from 2 in the morning.
I have been gradually introducing them to each other for few minutes. They fight. On the plus side, Pebbles is no longer hissing and growling at him. I suppose it’s a good sign.
The vet says things generally improve in 2 weeks. And also recommended the use of a pheromone spray to help alleviate stress for them. I have sprayed some tonight.
I am so close to a nervous breakdown. I feel torn between the two. Each one meows when I leave them for the other. Pebbles more so of course. And then I feel guilty for putting both of them through all the stress. In the end, I just want both of them to be happy.
If that means eventually I might have to reconsider keeping Buttons, so be it. I’d rather he was happy and not nervous in another home and that Pebbles was happy too. Because I do reckon he is nervous due to Pebbles scratching at his door and pouncing on it. He’s very skittish. I can handle them putting up with each other but not fighting each other.
I hope the cat cupid spreads some love. Soon.
Until next time,
