Thanks for the info and congrats on a speedy recovery with Cedes. It
sounds like he is doing really well.

I was very nervous about Molly with Emmett and I have tried to
reintroduce them all day without luck. If anything, she is becoming
more aggressive and frantic to get to him. I put her in his hospital
cage and she is now in the bathroom while Emmett gets reacclimated to
home. I am switching them back and forth and Emmett is napping in his
cage as we speak. I am going to spray them both with conditioning
spray so they smell the same. Maybe that will make a difference.

Thanks again and I hope all continues to go well with Cedes.
