Reactions to Bringing Home a New Pet

You're so excited about bringing home your new pet!  You already have a cat and have found a new puppy that you just couldn't resist.  Such a bundle of joy!  You've read all about introducing a new pet into the household, etc. and feel that things will work out well.  After all, your cat is very easy going; doesn't seem to get too upset about things, and so on.  With a little love and persuasion on your part, the animals will bond.  It's going to be so much fun!

You've told your cat about what's going to happen.  (Of course, you have!  We all talk to our pets as though they were people.)  However, you might get a reaction like this:
Awwww!  Such a sad expression.  But, you're not going to let this get you down.  It WILL work out!  However, if you get a reaction such as this, you might want to start to worry!
Hopefully, after the two get acquainted, the situation will be better and even entertaining.
Once in a while, you will no doubt have this situation:
You know there's always two sides to any problem, so you'll have to investigate to get the facts.  The animals may, or may not, be able to help you with that.  It's hard to know the truth sometimes.
The days go by, and you watch them "play".  Or, at least, you THINK they're playing.  Perhaps there's something going on that you really don't know about.

Sometimes, though, you really do get a clue about how your kitty feels about the new addition.

But, don't give up!  Once they establish who's the boss (the dog will eventually learn its place), things will settle down.  Occasionally, they can become real buddies.
Hallelujah and amen!!

Life Without Cats

No, I don't think so either!  After all, who would make sure that I get up in the morning in time for breakfast?

Who would help me with choosing what to fix for breakfast, lunch, or dinner?

Who would help me with my shopping

or taking care of chores around the house?

No, it just wouldn't be the same.  And what about at night?  Who would help keep my feet warm?

Who would tell me bedtime stories so that I would get sleepy and ready to go to bed?

And finally, who would make sure that I was comfortable and ready to sleep?

Life would be VERY BORING indeed without my two furry buddies!
