    Yesterday we had what could have been a major problem but we survived it. I had gone into Sass' bedroom and didn't close the door or put up the baby gate cuz I knew I wasn't going to be in there for long. When I went to leave I didn't see Sass but thought she was under the bed and didn't worry about it. Left the room and put the baby gate back up. I checked back a couple of times to see if I would see her but didn't. Still I wasn't overly worried. One of the times I saw Ms Oakley coming out of the bathroom but still nothing to be alarmed about. The last time I checked back I saw her outside the bedroom by the baby gate trying to figure out how come she couldn't get back in,. I opened up the baby gate and she walked in quietly. Didn't seem upset! Needless to say I felt like I'd lost several years off my life. Apparently she had been in the bathroom in the bathtub cuz her head was a bit wet (I have a small leak in the bathtub faucet). So she had been in there when Ms Oakley was also in there. I didn't hear any scuffles so apparently there was no major dust up between the two. Ms Oakley has been sitting in front of the baby gate today often hissing a little bit but no major issues on Sass' part. Needless to say I haven't left the door open at all today. It's just too early to let them spend time together.

    It went better than expected. You're right not to push things, but all worked out well.

      It sounds ss if they aren’t going to have serious issues with each other once they’re integrated.

        I think those two are going to be just fine once you open the gate. Sometimes accidents lead to outstanding results.
