Welcome and congratulations on getting your puppy!
One note: you said, "I also have a 6 year old Calico/Maltese mixed cat whom Bindi loves! Her name is Duo and she doesn't seem to mind her so much"
I know many people here have cats and Basenjis that get along just fine, but just be aware that their love affair may end at some point.
When we first got Jazz our cats were not thrilled, but were okay because we've always had dogs and they've always wound up getting along really well with our cats. After a few months of Jazz, however, she suddenly seemed to realize that she is a hunter. The cat that used to sleep in the same chair with her can no longer show its face w/out Jazz taking off in hot pursuit. Even if the cat is upstairs and Jazz is downstairs, she is off and running.
We've tried a few techniques to get her to stop chasing, and if I see the cat first I can tell Jazz to "leave it" and though she tenses up and really zones in on the cat w/her eyes, she will almost always leave it. But if she sees the cat first, she is impossible to stop.
