    It will still probably take some time to get her adjusted to living indoors, with other kitties. If they're not fighting, that's a good sign.

    In terms of grooming - some of mine hate it, some love it. I use a flea comb to work out dead hair - works great, and doesn't pull too much. But you can also take her to the vet and get her shaved. A friend of mine has to do this with her Maine Coon (she does him in a lion cut, it's adorable!). They sedate, shave, send home.

      yes CT, mostly all alone, as per her choice. Although she is coming around to me, a little at a time. She is a grumpy cat! She has discovered the bed, and both of the boys usually sleep at the foot of the bed, so she will sashay up to the head. When I pet her, I hear a little grumpy growl. Then if she sees the boys, a much more seriously grumpy growl. When she deigns to come and sit on my lap. if I shift her at all-a whiny growl. Let that pass. The grooming isn't nearly as important right now, but oh my goodness, I do think she is part yak! I really wanted to save her, but I do wish a majical fairy would come down and find her a good cat person house with no other cats to bother. Dickens is... I would say somewhat dismayed. His life is just turned sort of topsy-turvy, and Bug still jumps on him a lot. He just seems to want peace at any price.
      As far as boxes, I have 3. I had 3 before, BUT the boys have mostly been going outside which is such a blessing. I had to keep her indoors for a while, till she got used to being here. She prefers to be outside, and that is fine with me. They all love to be out. I hadn't even cleaned a box in weeks as they rarely use them.

      you can also take her to the vet and get her shaved. A friend of mine has to do this with her Maine Coon (she does him in a lion cut, it's adorable!). They sedate, shave, send home.

      I am thinking seriously about doing that. I dislike shaved cats, but it may be the only way, and as it grows back in, she will hopefully decide grooming isn't so bad after all!
