I just wanted to drop a note to thank everyone for their advice re: the 8 week old kitten and 11-month Maine Coon. The two are doing quite well together (I still haven't developed film, so I can't post pics), but they do cuddle up together and play together (sometimes rougher than we'd like, but no one's getting hurt). Sometimes the kitten suckles on Inka, but he's fairly tolerant and will eventually roll over or push her away. They sleep together a lot--particularly when we're not home. After about 10 days, we started letting them interact pretty extensively, and now they spend every waking moment together. They've survived a long road trip over Thanksgiving (7 hours each way in the cab of a truck) and seem to be doing well.

Inka has only peed twice in the three weeks since we brought Bajha home, and those were both times that he wasn't allowed outside for a few days. (He hasn't peed on the new recliner we got around the same time, either!) They're just generally two happy kids, playing and sleeping (and constantly eating each other's food). Does anyone have suggestions for trying to keep the kitten eating kitten food rather than cat food? We've tried putting the cat food up higher, but she's a crazy jumper and has foiled every attempt...Though that would be my only complaint so far!
