Two kitties entered our lives on September 10th. Almost two months ago!!
Because we were bringing them into a house with dogs who had almost no exposure to cats I did some research. Google is our friend. The general consensus was to designate a “safe” room for the cats. For us this was our dining room. Not that we use it as such very much. But it has a table with six chairs in it. I pushed the table and chairs off to the side, giving lots more floor space. They were (are) fed in there and that’s where their litter box is (yuck).
Because we are having guests next weekend and will need seating for six during meals I decided it was time to take the dining room back. Plus, dogs and cats are fully integrated now, thanks for asking. It was very difficult, or so it seemed, until it just clicked.
