Long hair dobe used to be SO's cat, and as far as I know is used to being brushed/groomed fairly regularly. His mom got a little depressed towards the end and stopped doing it as often. She seems like she is making the transition pretty well. We let her stay in the heated attached garage her first few nights, so she could start to adjust to the new noises and smells without being disturbed. Now we have her in her own bedroom, no Radar allowed. She is kind of a recluse cat, so we haven't moved the gate up in the doorway yet, but plan to in the coming days, if she feels like venturing out. I'm gonna look into buying some cat trees/making some hideouts for her. The room she is in has a few plastic totes in it (we don't have a lot of storage), so she is able to hide pretty well when she wants to, which is most of the time. She seems to be eating pretty well and drinking water too.
I've been letting radar sniff her crate/towels, and going back through some basic OB stuff with him. He is very curious, but doesn't dwell on it like he would have a year ago. I tell him leave it and he moves on to baby diaper smelling duty.
So far she has her food and litter box in her room, and has been using it despite the stress I'm sure she is feeling. Hopefully that continues.
Nolan is oblivious to the new addition.

You might check places like TJ Maxx, Home Goods, etc for cat trees - they often have pretty decent tall cats trees for much cheaper than the pet stores.
Sounds like you're off to a great start!
