Cats and dogs living together
I anticipated strife between the small beasts but I was never fully prepared for the absolute madness and missing animal current status of my home.
The dog had been here since July, shouldn’t they be used to each other by now? 7 months. 7 months!
The current vibe is the cats have the run of the house all night while the pup is in the crate and during the day, the cats are free to roam (but don’t) and the dog is in and out. Or very often, getting stuck under the bed to torment the hiding cats. My hope was this could be a bonding experience, as opportunity to get used to each other’s smells and presence but rather just evolves into the worst possible sounds and behavior and the dog gets stuck under the bed while quite possibly getting her eyes scratched out. It’s a real pleasure. I encourage you to stop by some time to experience it yourself.
So. Here we are. Everyone in their respective corners not getting used to each other at all and I don’t see it changing anytime soon and it’s terribly annoying. The End.
