My friend brought Coco to me this morning.  So far no fights with Tiger.
He is beginning to move around very slowly.  He is being very cautious.

Congratulations! Purrs for them to become good friends, or at least,
tolerant acquaintances.

So far Coco hasn't eaten anything.  There haven't been any fights with
Tiger - just some stareing and spitting.  I brought Coco onto my bed
last night but he left after a little while.  He got on my lap this
morning and nuzzled my hand.  If he doesn't eat soon I may have to bring
him back.

He will eat.  Don't take him back--he's just nervous because he's in a new
environment.  I assume you have taken him to a vet for a health check.  If
not, please do that immediately.  When I adopted Duffy, I literally drove
straight from the animal shelter to TED's office for a full checkup.  That
was to protect Holly as well as Duffy.  That is, I did not want to import
something that could harm Holly, and I wanted to see if there was anything
that Duffy needed.  (He was perfectly healthy.  Yay!!)

Are you giving Coco the same food as he ate previously?  If not, it would be
a good idea to get some of that so he doesn't have to face too many changes
at once.  You could get some canned baby food (100% chicken, beef or
turkey--*no* onion) to tempt him.

Good luck!  "This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship."  :)

All good suggestions.  Also, are you feeding them both in the same room?  If
you aren't putting him and his food in a room shut away from Tiger, you
might try that.

Debbie was uncomfortable with Coco not eating or drinking so she wanted
to take him back.  As soon as she appeared, Coco seemed relieved and did
eat a little.  I will miss him but he is 14 years old and will be much
happier in his old home.  Tiger seems happier now too.

of sending him back.

You gave up too soon.
