I adopetd my cat, Lulabelle, from a shelter. She was estimated to be 7 yrs old at that time. After I got her home I noticed she would not let me bend over and pet her on the head. She should back off as if she had been hit or abused. It took quite a while to build up our relationship to this point and I love her so much. I look forward to seeing her at the end of the day. Our special time is on the bed. That is where she felt most comfortable for me to love and kiss on her and rub her belly. Six days ago I took in an abandoned 6 week old kitten. She has a great personality and everyone loves her except Lulabelle. People keep telling me to give it time but, Lulabelle won't come to my bed anymore and hides all the time, once when I tried to hold her she hissed at me. Her body goes all rigid when I try to hold her and meows pitifully. I try to keep the new kitten in the bathroom to give Lulabelle her space but she still won't come to me. Lulabelle and I had formed such a strong bond and I feel like I'm losing her. Is it because of her traumatic past or because of jealousy? Should I give it more time or will Lulabelle deteriorate more rapidly? This kitten is cute but my heart belongs to Lulabelle. Is there a chance that they will ever get a long or is that too much for Lulabelle to handle? I don't want to lose her. It's breaking my heart. Help!!!
