They started out a bit rough with Maddox not wanting to even have Phantom near him or walk near him. Phantom was very nonchalant about it all and just did whatever he wanted. Maddox was equally as shy and would hiss at myself and the children if they came up too close to him. However...in just 2 weeks time, they are currently sleeping aside each other as they have each night this week on top of my bed. They play with each other, Maddox instigating it as often as Phantom. Maddox is truly a mushy kitty cat. He licks us and talks to us all the time and wants to be patted and rubbed constantly. Phantom lays in our laps quietly purring. They both are warming up to the children more and more each day. No longer do we have incidents of hissing or scratching. Maddox is beginning to trust in us and our routine and that he will be here forever. He believes he's hit the jackpot.
They both would rather our dogs didn't exist and they have let our dogs know this several times by swatting them and hissing at them. Our dogs are finally getting the lesson. Hopefully over time they will be on a bit warmer terms but they've got loads of time for that. I cannot tell you enough how happy we were to have found such wonderful pets for our family.
