We have a shih-tzu whom we got 5 years ago.
In the spring of '08 we got a new cat. In the summer of '09 she gave birth to 4 kittens (and before anybody flames me she was fixed this fall). We kept one kitten, and the other 3 were sent to homes who would never have gotten a cat through an animal shelter. The one we kept (a male) has an appt. to be fixed early January.
A buddy at work recently had huskie/black lab puppies. I casually mentioned this to my wife, and she is ga-ga over the idea of getting one of these dogs.
We have the room (and financial means) to take care of this dog. Is it a good idea with the cats?
My shih-tzu gets along with anything (you could bring an african lion into the house and as long as he got to sniff its butt he’d be cool). But what about the cats?
Anybody with anecdotal evidence for the pro’s/con’s of introducing a dog into a household with cats?
