Adding A Dog To The Mix

Soon, I will be relocating to my house in Delaware where I will be allowed to own a dog. Currently, the condo that I live in does not allow dogs. I have the option of adopting a cute little puppy and making frequent stops at the pet store to buy things like a dog leash, dog toys, dog food and a very lush dog bed. All of these things sound wonderful but I can’t forget that I have two cats. One is 11 years old and the other is 17. The older cat has medical issues. So I have to ask myself this question. Do I want to cause my two sweet cats who have been with me a long time and major disruption in their little lives?  I’ve just answered my own question. “No” Even though it is a great temptation, I’ll wait.

You should be mindful of the pets you have before introducing a new one to the mix. There is an adjustment period and it definitely can be done. I would recommend to introduce a new puppy when your pets are still young. There will be a disruption but if you’re careful, separate them then gradually get them acquainted with one another, you’ll be more successful.

As for me, I’ll stick with buying cat food and cat toys for awhile longer.
