What a good week it has been around here with all the new puppies in new homes! I'm really happy for you.
Cats are cats, you know? I had 7 at one time. We would have the usual growling and hissing when I would bring in a new kitten but it was just their way of deciding their pecking order. Now I'm left with the last one of the bunch and at first he was sad because as you get more cats they bond with each other and not the humans. John Robert is now more bonded to hubby (no surprise since I'm the medicine giver, "check this out" person, cut out mats, etc.) and he's showing his age. He was attacked by a rotty as a kitten and now has hernia problems which cause pooping problems. Always something!
My cats would always do okay with the dogs. There might be a bit of a swat or hiss here and there to designate boundaries but nobody was ever hurt. A bit frightened maybe but not hurt.
Now, stop worrying about the cats and love on that new puppy!
