Death comes quietly
When I brought my ridgeback puppy home, we had a cat, probably around 12 years old.
He literally beat the dog down and made him cower. They ended up being best buds, once the dog learned that the cat was the real boss.
Next round of pets I get in a decade or so I'm getting a kitten and a puppy at the same time so they can grow up together and not be jerks to each other like my adopted cats are to my puppy :(
I recently got a kitten, he’s about 9 months old now. He and my 1 1/2 year old German shepherd play around too much. Running around the house and the batting, pouncing and little nips drive me crazy. The children have too much energy!
