We of course have the 2 inside dogs. They are both fond of our cats, who are outside cats who come in for affection/during bad weather. Well, easy child had this approx 4-5 mo old kitten show up on her doorstep. Obviously hasn't been homeless long. Clean, no fleas, and desperate to get back inside anyone's house. Kitten is sweet and well behaved. easy child can't keep him cuz she's already got to males. So easy child talked me into it. Wasn't hard because the cold wet weather is here. This is based on whether or not Molly and Betsy and the new kitten named Buzz can co habitate. Kitten is nervous and skiddish around the dogs. (not surprising if he was roaming our neighborhood) Molly has already warmed up to him, and he now seems fine with her. Betsy is our problem. She LOVES cats. I'm not sure, but I think she thinks they're puppies.lol She would never intentionally hurt one, but gets so over excited she is scaring Buzz to death. And she might hurt him while trying to play puppy style. Tonight she's gated in the kitchen with me. Buzz the new kitty is in the livingroom with Nichole. We've let them "see" each other a few times. It's taken 2 hrs but Betsy has finally calmed down and is lying at my feet. Any tricks to introducing a cat to a dog I should know about? Cuz with Molly all I have to do is say the word Baby and she knows not to hurt the animal whatever it is. But while Betsy is smart, she's not as smart as Molly. I'd like this to work. He's a really nice cat. And a good chance to have a well behaved inside mouser. (he actually uses the litter box...YEA!) But if it doesn't.....Well I've become quite adept with Nichole bringing home so many animals over these past months in finding really good homes.
