Hey Sarah -

Just wanted to touch base with you and let you know Bernard is doing great! He is the most confident, calm, and social cat I have met! He lasted being in a separate room for all of about 18 hours, then we kinda let him dictate the introductions, and we had a completely integrated household in less than 36 hours...

He is so confident around the house and acts like he's lived here forever (as you can see in the picture). Two of our dogs act like he's been part of the family forever too, and the 3rd is being very curious but respectful. Katie the cat hasn't warmed up to him yet, but even as she runs past him and hisses, he just stares at her like he knows they are soon going to be friends.

No matter what room we are in, Bernard is there, just hanging out with us. He loves to chill on the back of the couch and look out the window and listen to the birds. He reminds me so much of my cat Cinder, who was also missing a canine tooth, and when she yawned - just like Bernard - her upper lip got stuck on her gum. He is just so adorable! And, no intestinal issues so far! I think he is very relaxed/non-stressed and happy to be here! And we are just thrilled with him, so thank you for suggesting him!

We'll continue to keep you updated!
