I have a newly adopted cat (female, spayed, 1.5 yrs) in a safe room.
I have a resident cat (female, spayed, 3 yrs) in the rest of the house.
I am not yet at the point where the new cat is ready to roam the house or where the cats are ready to meet.
How should I divide my time? I work from home so can be anywhere during the day, and both areas have beds so I can sleep anywhere at night.
My resident cat is very attached to me and gets noticeably jealous (usually expressed as misdirected aggression when I am near or come out of the safe room) / depressed when I'm not around, she also has some serious separation anxiety issues, although I've been making progress in that regard in the past year. I want to both bond with the new cat but not make the old cat resent the new one before they even meet, and also I want to make sure the new cat has time to just relax in the safe room without me.
