Sadie protects the house...
On a related note, we discovered pet screen. It's a product designed especially so dogs and cats can't destroy it. Carl purchased a roll of it yesterday at Home Depot and plans to re-screen the windows we've had problems with Sadie destroying. My craft room for sure, the family room windows and probably the slide screen to the deck. Last summer we had to keep windows closed because of her tendency to snag her claws in the screen and rip holes in it.
We've had no Sadie accidents since we started the pills again. The girls are tolerating each other but still are no closer to becoming friends. Just this morning with Sadie sound asleep on the craft room windows seat, Sassy tried to jump up there. She couldn't see Sadie, obviously. The jump woke Sadie up but Sassy was the one who turned around and jumped right back down, Sadie didn't do anything or make any noise. Now Sadie is awake and Sassy is downstairs somewhere. I tried to bring her back up but she just did that low, long screech she does, not really a scream or a growl. I've read it can take a year for cats to learn to get along, I think we'll need longer.
