As long as the cat keeps well out of the dog's way ! Most learn to do that pretty soon after the Basenji arrives - I have seen a Basenji shaking a cat, much like you would a feather duster.
And another new SoCal member!
I've lurked a bit while I was researching Basenjis and I'm delighted to say Fiji has now joined our family. She'll be 3 in July - I picked her up last weekend from a woman who couldn't keep her following a tough divorce. I had been looking for a rescue basenji and had a home visit coordinated by Karen at Basenji Rescue recently. Then this little girl just floated magically into our orbit.
She's a doll…though now that she's had a few days to become confident that we love her and will keep her, she's testing. Typical B, from everything I've read. We downsized to a small loft with a big view in an urban environment a few years ago and haven't had a dog in this kind of environment. But she loves walking the neighborhood and hanging at the office with us.
Already, I can't imagine how I ever lived without a Basenji! Thanks for allthe good info on this board!

Welcome to the Forum. I hope you are having a blast with your little girl! I used to live in So-Cal and now live in CO…we're getting our B at the end of the month and from everything I hear about how they like the sun & warmer weather....I think a B would like So-Cal better cuz its warmer down there! Ours will just have to tough it out in the crazy Colorado weather. LOL
Wee are having ablast with her indeed. I've taken to heart what I've heard a few times on these forums: a tired Basenji is a good Basenji. She and I walk and walk and walk.
And, yes, I think they're happier in the heat. Fiji is not too impressed when it's foggy and cool in the morning. Can't imagine they'd love snow, though I know there are a lot of folks from cold climes on these boards.
