Here's the new playmate! He's got an URI so treating him right now, hopefully he'll feel better soon. Still getting used to Kismet running around and the new place so he hides a bit. His name was Blackjack in the shelter. I'm debating if I want to keep it or change it. Some other ideas I had were Mojo, Cashmere, Casanova, Whimsy…
It's time for Kismet to have a friend I think. But she'll soon be having a "different" buddy then most would get for their dog LOL. I'm limiting myself to two dogs and two cats, and as the dogs positions are full… a cat it will have to be! I've got a couple potentials who are being fostered with dogs, so I can be sure they will get along with one. I'm not able to bring her to their homes plus their about an hour from me so they can't come here So I'll just have to see how they interact with the dogs of those houses.
I was able to finally see her with another cat today when I went to a shelter that'd allow me to bring her. It was really cute, the cat would smack her on her head very nicely (no claws!). Wish the room was bigger to see if they'd play chase. She didn't seem to know what to do with a cat that wasn't growling at her anytime she tried to touch it. The other two pets of the house are seniors and don't want anything to do with her
Tomorrow I have appointments to stop by two houses that have two kitties that might fit my needs. I can't wait! I would have just taken Blackjack (the shelter kitty) but I didn't want to rush into it. Wanna make sure my new baby is the right one!
Just thought I'd share, I'm so excited I'll share some pics of them soon as the new addition gets comfortable.
I love cats! I think thats what draws me to the basenji's is their cat like personality I'm looking into adopting a new kitty now (my Gypsy girl passed away last year) and hope to find one that's 1) cuddly sweet and 2) playful with my dog. Kismet's so sad that my Jenny (other cat) and Bear (chow) refuses to play with her since they're so much older. Hopefully the younger blood coming in will be a new buddy for her!
I don't know what age your new dog is but I found this website that explains the developmental stages that might help you out a bit: http://www.diamondsintheruff.com/DevelopmentalStages.html
I guess I'm lucky that whatever Kismet's mixed with makes her an angel in the car She normally will lay down in the backseat while driving unless she wants to stick her head out the window for a bit. And whenever I run to the store upon my return she's sitting or laying down with no wear or tear I've come across so far. Now if only I could come back to my room in the same shape…
