Hi everyone,

This is very normal. Sad, but normal. Cats do not like change. Savannah cats like it even less. You will need to engage him more to fill the void. Was there a particular time that she would interact with him? If so, fill that time with play and pets and cuddles. Basically, you have to provide all the attention that he used to receive from 2 people. And even then.....things changed. He will need to adjust.

Rafiki pretty much said it, though I'll add this: if he was bonded to her particularly then it will likely take some extra time for him to bounce back.

Also, be aware that cats really absorb our emotions too. I am sure you are upset over the relationship breakup and the cats tend to feel our grief and hurt...

I'm very sorry, I hope you and Abbas both feel more cheerful soon.

Abbas got new friend
Try to upload file :( not working
You cannot load the video onto this site directly. You have to host it somewhere else (like Facebook, Youtube, etc.) and place the link here. Looking forward to seeing his new friend!

I would play it by ear and see how they do. Definitely start with Abbas in a crate and the dog either crated or leashed as well and introduce them that way for short periods. If Abbas is trained on the leash you could try that instead of a crate, but have a crate available in case he needs/wants to retreat. Either's home will be their territory so the may be more protective, although finding neutral territory to introduce them may be stressful for Abbas as well. Jack Russell's can be very active so ideally they should make good companions for each other, but you will have to see how they hit it off, and just be patient and give them time to get to know each other.
