"I'm sure everyone could use some good news so I wanted to send along an update on her progress.
We took things slowly with intros to give her a solid foundation for adjusting. She spent around a week in the crate and then she just got fed in there for about another week. I then left the crate there for her as her special place for another week or so. That integrated her well into an area where the dogs don't go.
Since then I slowly let her come out and explore and she's still able to retreat into that first area when she wants but she's basically out and about now. She has adjusted totally to the little dog and is still slightly shy around the Rottweiler but is gaining confidence. She hasn't befriended the other kitties yet but she is also not wary of them at this point.
She loves toys and to run around and when I'm working I can often hear her running around upstairs. If she's not playing, she loves, loves, loves basking in the sun from our deck. She's seeking out interaction with me and petting and she seems almost content (especially when laying in the sun.)
Last night she jumped on the bed while we were watching TV for the first time. The other cats spooked her so she didn't stay but she made herself to home on a chair in the bedroom. So, we're just about there.
My husband absolutely loves her and is so proud of how well she's coming along.
We're so glad to have been able to welcome her home!"
