The suggestion of treats to be shared when meeting was a great idea..unfortunately my hubby has interpreted Cat's suggestion in a slightly different manner than it was intended! We brought a new Wubba today and placed it in front of Sadie, looking to entice Spike over. (I should mention here that I cheated a wee bit last night and opened the door for Spike. He was stretched out in front of Sadie's door when I was headed up to bed last night so I opened the door and let him. He walked right up to Sadie, they sniffed noses and then Spike walked past Sadie to check out the rest of the room. Of course - no camera since hubby was fast asleep in bed already.)
Spike's reaction to the Wubba was typical..grab, bite, chew..and ignore any other cat in sight. Sadie just sat and watched in interest. The smell of catnip must have wafted downstairs since Angel was quick to come up and as soon as Spike lost interest, Angel went over to smell the Wubba. As you can see in the background, Sadie is getting ready to walk out of her room, willing to leave the Wubba treat to the boys. And out of the room is the operative word...she is now free to walk among the rest of the furries. So far, she has walked around both floors, looked out the front window and the back window (both of which are level to the floor which provides a great sightline for a cat) and has learned how to take the cat tunnel shortcut through the hall.
