Goldfish really has become Chanel's minion. The only thing mom worries about is Chanel getting enough attention. Both girls get up on the bed at reading time and Goldfish will shove her way in front of Chanel. Mom will make an effort to make sure Chanel is getting her share of the attention. The nice part is that Chanel will come up to mom in the evenings so she does get that time to herself.
While Goldfish is doing very well when mom is in bed - and in fact Goldfish sleeps with her most of the night - she is still a little skittish during the day in the rest of the house. That said, by comparison, Junior will run if mom gets within about 3 feet of him. Goldfish isn't that bad...she will stay where she is in the room so long as mom doesn't directly approach her. Though mom will admit to sneaking up on Goldfish occasionally when she is sleeping on the cat ladder and touching the toes.
It will be a continuing process. But honestly when mom decided to add her to our household, we never had expectations of Goldfish making this much process in the time that she has so far. While we suspect Goldfish will never be as social as Chanel, we have some hope.
Oh - and the noises the Goldfish makes are totally a play after Chanel - no real meows, more chirps.
Mom put this box on the back of the sofa as sort of a blocker. Goldfish climbed in and Chanel, as she tends to be, was totally baffled.
