Will do! From your description, I can see that the first meeting went much better than it might have!

When you have the two in a larger room, you want to make sure one is not cornering/trapping the other in a corner or under furniture without an escape route ie around or up onto furniture/window sill etc.
Most of the hiding places in the room have at least 2 egresses, so I think we'll be okay. I'll have to watch the corner by the curio, though. Something tells me that if it becomes necessary to go in for a rescue, it might be JD who needs the help, though. He's quite the little gentleman.
