Back in February we rescued two female Rex cats, a 5yo Cornish named Tango and a 5.5yo Devon named Jini. They were raised together and had been part of a house of 11 cats. Divorce and loss of house ensued and they were thrown on the mercy of the public. After 3 months a (relatively) local organisation called Rex Rescue advertised them on their fb page. As we were looking for Rexes in particular we adopted them and they have settled in quite well.

As I mentioned in my previous pos, our problem has just arrived at the house. She is a 10yo Cornish Rex named Sheba who we got from Rex Rescue on Tuesday. She is a little toey with other cats and I was wondering if any of you had any tips for integrating another cat into a household. Our previous boys (passed from old age two years ago) were acquired as kittens so we've never really done the 'adult cats don't like each other' thing before.

Do you, my flist, have any words of wisdom ('cause your words tend to have that quality) to help the blended household? I'd really appreciate any insights anyone might have.

Today we brought home another rescued Rex to join our two. This one is a 10yo female Cornish Rex that currently goes by the name Sheba. A state of armed detente exists in the household while the three of them get to know each other. I'll, uh, keep you posted.......

Here's a link (hopefully) to pics of our new cats, they're both female, rescue kittehs and 5 years old. Jini is a brindle Devon Rex, Tango is a lilac and cream Cornish Rex. They are beautiful-natured, very affectionate little girls and settling in really well. Best of all our friend John, who is allergic to cats, had absolutely NO reaction to them when he came to visit last weekend.

So, after some time petless we are considering another cat. Because our dear friend John is not-exactly-allergic to them we would like something low-allergenic so he doesn't have to load up on anti-histamines every time he visits.

Breeds so far suggested are the Devon or Cornish Rexes, female. Knowing that there is no such thing as a non-allergenic cat (despite Allerca's claims to the contrary) does anyone have any suggestions from (preferably) first-hand experience? There's plenty of lead-in time as we aren't planning on getting one before xmas.
