Sounds good! We have this past month brought in a formerly feral cat, and I'm surprised how quickly he has learned the ropes. A cat who is enjoying the life will learn fast.
I agree with you, Pip, Blue is learning how to get along, and fitting in well for the short time she's been there.
Miss Blue walked up to Cooper while he was eating, gave him a social hind end sniff, and then just walked away. No hiss, growl or paw involved.

Anytime around the food bowl of another and no negative responses is a win. I'm proud of your furry friends. Miss Blue and the Buff will only get better over time. She's come so far!
Cooper has his own time constraints. He'll do whatever he can do whenever he can. As long as Miss Blue respects that then we can hope for more but it's up to them and the group dynamics. They're all swell cats.
Blessings to all,
Miss Blue, who was shut out of her previous people's bedroom has learned that she is welcome to come to bed. Every night she spends at least 10 - 15 minutes purring up a storm, kneading the blanket, cuddling, shoving her hand under your fingers for scritches...many mornings, she wakes me about 4 AM with a return, looking for more loving.
As of 26 August Princess Blue is 13 years of age.
She and Buff seem to be on mostly friendly terms. She seeks him out for nose bumps, before she hisses and bops him.
She and Cooper are definitely working things out. She is now more likely to growl and glare, rather than go after him out of hand. The chases are down to one every day or two, and once he goes upstairs to the bedroom level, Blue stops about halfway up.
9 months now that Miss Blue has been the new Queen of the House.
Things are about 95% peaceful to neutral with Buff and they are as likely to give each other nose bumps as she is to hiss at him. I think its for show now.
Blue chases Cooper once a day now, but no longer pursues it to a physical confrontation.
She is loud though, and he has been standing up to her
