Yes - all spayed and/or neutered. Lavender? I know it's used homeopathically for relaxation for people - works on cats too? I have some lavender spray I use on my pillows at night so I'll try making a sachet like you suggested.
I'm prepared to go the distance - however many weeks - until I either see some kind of acceptance or it becomes evident that she's just not going to fit in. Aside from the Feliway I've gone back to square 1 with introductions - no visuals, just scents for another week or so. They were sort of reluctantly accepting each others presence for a while but then there was a physical scrap and it went back to regular showdowns.....
Hopefully we get more steps forward than we get steps back and we all get there eventually!
Many have forgotten this truth, but you must not forget it.
You remain responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.
