    Careful, as you probably know, cats are one of the most jealous species and won't hesitate to attack a newcomer, even if it's a dog!

    congrats on the new arrival. They'll get it sorted out in a week or so. In a year, they'll be best friends.

    He's really a beautiful boy...... such soft, gentle eyes

    Little B got his ear split when my neighbour grabbed him and took him to visit her cat who was minding his own business in his basket...... the vet couldn't repair it without an operation so he sports a split ear to this day.

    Yep, it's best not to force instant relationships between species. But more often than not if they get to know each other gradually on their own terms, everything works out OK.

    I would also add that (for me) getting a dog changed my life. I am a much better person in so many ways than before I got one. Even after 11 years, she teaches me new things about myself and the world. Every dog may not have that same effect on every human. But at the very least, you have a new friend in the house that won't judge you.

    it will be fun to watch your pictures of the two as they get accustomed to each other.

    That's the difference between cats and dogs I guess. My cats are always judging how quickly I cater to their latest whim...

    we care for our dogs because we WANT to...... we care for our cats because THEY DEMAND it.

    Dogs have owners, cats have staff.
