I adopted Rama the black kitten on Monday and just wanted to check in and let you know that things are going so great! We are so in love with him.
The introduction between him (we renamed him Arlo) and our dog Ophelia went so well. We started off pretty slowly and let them meet through a door, then gradually let them see, then sniff each other, and then check each other out on the ground. (We held Ophie’s collar.)
It turns out they share a love of freeze dried chicken, tuna flakes, and napping in donut beds. By the next morning they were taking naps together and had a good (supervised) play session at night. Our dog seems about 5 years younger, she is so happy. Ophelia is especially happy with the cat massages and follows him around showing him her back.
At this point they nap together in the same bed at least 6 hours a day and have a few very sweet play sessions. They like slow motion chase and tagging each other back and forth. It is really funny to watch.
Our daughter is super good with him. They play and cuddle and are so sweet together. He has fit so well into our family. We feel very, very lucky!
