My cat was already ten years old, this is a venerable age for the feline family. We decided to take a little dog, although we thought for a long time about whether it was worth doing it or not. Of course, there were doubts that the cat would be able to accept a new resident.
When my cat was ten years old, I began to be overcome with an acute desire to have another pet. Moreover, there was an opportunity to make my dream come true. However, having a cat stopped me. He is already an adult, so there were doubts that he would accept another family member, especially a dog.
I spent another year in doubts and meditations. On the one hand, I dreamed of a dog, but on the other, I did not want to infringe on my cat. However, my desire relocated, and I took the puppy. I thought that they would live like a «cat and dog» in the literal sense, but my fears were not confirmed.
Such a relationship that developed between my dog and cat, I could not even imagine. They became inseparable friends. The first small disagreement occurred between them only on the first day, when the dog started sniffing the cat, and it hit the dog with its paw. After that, I did not notice anything like it. They sleep together, eat and walk together.
The cat is gradually aging, I don’t even know how the dog will survive its loss.
