Mommy: Slashy, we're moving house soon. Can you help out with some of the packing please?
Slash: Let me think about it.
Slash: Hmmm... Okay, I have my answer.
While searching for a pet-friendly house to move into,
I got to know a lovely young lady with a dog and cat of her own.
We exchanged photos of our furry babies and ooh-ed and aah-ed over them.
With permission from her, here is a very sweet photo of her two darlings.
As much as I do like her and her two cuties,
I decided not to move into her place after she cautioned that
"... the dog could be a problem.
He's amazing with them when he considers them 'his' cats,
but can be a bit over the top at first and,
if the cats aren't used to dogs, it could be very stressful for them to begin with.
Wouldn't be so much of an issue if he wasn't a 38kg bullmastiff x greyhound
that likes to chase unfamiliar furry things!"
I do hope that Slash and Bronzy will eventually learn to get along with dogs.
But it would be a good idea to take baby steps and start them off with a small pup perhaps.
Meanwhile, I've found us a lovely apartment to move in to.
We'll be sharing it with a young couple who are absolutely beside themselves
at the thought of having Slash and Bronzy in the house.
This is a relief for me for I know that the kitties won't just be tolerated,
but that they would be genuinely welcomed in the house.
