@tanza:

Only a Basenji would sleep in a fire pit!

The most common saying in our house is ' yup, she's a Basenji'

The Elkhound (Max) isn't ours, the two larger dogs belong to our friends. Max doesn't care for Zuri too much, she always wants to play and he likes to relax. He does play nice with her when he feels like it though and that is usually fine with her.

We just got back from a 4 day camping trip with lots of rain (a basenji personal favorite). We had 1 campsite, 2 tents, 4 adults and 4 dogs….what fun!!! I am including a few pictures of Zuri and her antics. I apologize for the lines in the pictures, it was the only way I could resize them for this forum.

So, we did decide to get the kitten and it's been a couple weeks since we brought him home. He is about 6 months old at this point. Zuri loves to chase him and they play quite a bit….sometimes rougher that I would like but when Tony is fed up, he goes in his cat tree out of Zuri's reach....and well, when Zuri is fed up...wait a minute, that never happens. Anyway, so far all is going quite well.

@tanza:

I would NOT declaw… a "clawed" kitty has a better chance of gaining a Basenji's respect...IMO

The decision I am referring to is the one to get the kitten…not to have it declawed. I will not have a cat declawed for that reason among many others.

I am not a fan of declawing and since we have a doggie door, there is a chance the cat may get out and if she does she will need her claws. I will keep you posted on the decision and the adjustment. I am already planning escape zones for the kitten if we get her.

We are definitely going to invest in a cat tree if we get this cat. Hubby is in love with the kitten and convinced Zuri will be fine with it. It is an older kitten and not too small. I too think she is pretty playful and doesn't have any agression towards any animals so far….she just wants to play. Still looking for suggestions...but as I said...I think hubby is already sold on the idea. If tehy become playmates, it would be great because my old gal won't be around forever.
I do plan to proceed with caution.

Thanks for the imput.

I am wondering if anyone has experience introducing a kitten to a puppy basenji.
I have been reading some of the posts on B's and cats. Most of them seem to have started with the cat first and then introduced the Basenji.
We are thinking of getting a kitten to play with Zuri. (So she stops picking on our 13yr old dachshund).
Zuri is now 8 months old. She loves to play but our old gal peppermint just can't handle the type of play. I think if Peppermint could sue Zuri, we would be in court forever dealing with harassment and abuse charges (Peppermint would win).

Anyway, good idea or bad idea to get a kitten?

I have to say that the one thing my Basenji has taught me is to pick up after myself!:D

Zuri gets a few…
Zuri monster (Zuri means beautiful in Swahili so it means Beautiful Monster and i am certain some of you can relate to that one)
MizZuri (misery) a personal fav of my hubby
Zuchini (by those who can't remember her name)
ZurZur just for fun

What is it with B's and toilet paper? We have to keep the bathroom doors closed here all the time…she loves to pull at the TP when it's still on the roll.
