Cats Meet The Newest Member Of Our Family: Our Dog!

I am so happy that my cats seem to be coming around to accept Abby as part of our family. There has been NO hissing or growling at all! Today, even Manny came downstairs while the dog was free. We left the dog on the main floor all the while we were at church today and hoped for the best. As it turned out, it seems that my cats are just curious and being a bit cautious. Abby is so good. She doesn't go after them at all. It seems soon Manny and Spunky will reclaim their territory, but our new dog is feeling right at home and stretched out on our living room couch today! This is where Manny likes to lay during the day so I hope it doesn't cause problems.

They'll all be friends before you know it. Especially if Abby/Gabby doesn't chase them.

I'll bet they'll be best friends very soon. Congrats on the new cat and dog. They are all so adorable. Thanks for stopping by today.

Spunky Doodle and Manny are making very good progress with Abby! Abby is so pretty by the way!

I think it is really amazing how quickly Spunky Doodle and Manny are accepting Abby! Maybe it's because Abby seems to be such a laid-back sort of doggie.

If the kittehs start showing any stress, we found that Rescue Remedy for Pets works really well. I got some because I have been overgrooming because of anxiety caused by Harley. I am much calmer and happier now.

They will all be sleeping together in pretty short order. How cute the video is.

Have a terrific day. :)

Lin: I think you are right!

Michelle: Hope you are right.

Beaded Tail: I am happy the cats are coming around more and more. Hopefully they will feel comfortable around her soon. Abby is a wonderful dog and a great addition to our family.

Daisy: Yes, Abby is very laid back. She loves to be by people and is content to just lay around. She also loves to go outside which gives the cats a nice break. I have squirted some Feliway around to help calm the cats. It works very well. It's what I used when we first got Manny to help calm him down.

Sandee: I was hoping I'd find them laying together yesterday, but not yet. Glad you liked the video. It's fun to make these. Check out all our videos on our YouTube by clicking on the tab at the top that says "videos." I have a great idea in mind to work on for another video we we get her trained real well.
