If you didn’t read my last post, we had guests for a long weekend. They arrived Thursday afternoon and are planning on leaving this morning. In the meantime, the cats have been relegated to the upstairs while the dogs have the downstairs.
Chris was perfectly fine with this arrangement, probably because he needed an excuse to not drag is 20 pound body up and down the stairs. Frankie and floki were not as happy about the arrangement. Floki would sneak downstairs sometimes when nobody was around but Frankie would not put up with any restrictions.
I think he felt like this is his house and he’s not going to let any dogs push him around.
There were a few near altercations but there was always someone around to stop it before it got too far. Personally, I think the dog was lucky.
Amazingly, by Friday night Frankie was in the living room lying on the chair while the two dogs were each on one of the sofas.
There were a few more scuffles on Saturday but the living room scene repeated that night with Frankie on the chair and the dogs on the sofa.
Of course, I don’t want to see any fights, but I was a little proud of how Frankie stood his ground to protect his territory. It is his house and if he wanted to be downstairs he was going to be downstairs.
Has anyone else had issues with dogs being introduced to cats?
