The post below shows Mia and Siren together - kind of, sort of. For them it's together.
They are sharing space and time without any bars between them.
Tolerance is pretty much the name of the game and that's fine. They occasionally fight - this is mostly Mia swiping blindly at Siren's face as he dodges her claws and cries. I swear his cry sounds like "why?, why?".
Mia will ignore him as long as he keeps his distance. If Siren comes too close he will be warned by very loud hissing.
We think Mia is deaf. She does not respond to sound. I stand right behind her and clap my hands and she doesn't turn around. Siren watches her walk down the hall and she is only aware of him when he comes within smelling distance. I enter the room and she only looks at me if I shake the bed or come into view.
Her regular vet is on vacation. I'll have her checked when he's back. It's not critical and if she is deaf then it is just one more reason why I'm glad she found me. I'll make sure she's comfy and safe and Siren will put up with her.
Sorry about the slideshow being in a separate post - again!! Photobucket html code is not working for me - again!! I installed Picasa but I hate the way captions look in their slideshow and I didn't feel like playing around anymore.
I'm learning a new Unix program, Photoshop, Picasa and I just upgraded my data entry software. I am too old for all this.
