Fireball and George are learning to get along. The short version of the introductions: Fireball hissed and swatted at George, George started shaking, they went separate ways. After a few sessions like this, they are now able to be in the same room. George is very curious about his new friend, but Fireball is not interested in hanging out. I am confident that they will grow to be buddies. George is a sweet dog, Fireball just needs to figure that out.
Aidan tried to help make peace this morning before school. Check it out:
Later in the day as I was walking into the den, I saw something move out of the corner of my eye. Fireball discovered the tree with dangling toys.
After I took the picture above, I clapped my hands loudly and said “Down!” He immediately came down. Same clap and command worked for getting on the table. So, it appears our new kitten is both feisty and smart 🙂
