The Cats Aren't Happy

I'm getting a seriously slow start to the day after waking up with a killer migraine headache at 730 am. There's still an ache pushing against my brain but I can at least sit at my computer without wishing for death.

I'm just popping in to introduce you to the newest member of my family. After writing my blog post on Saturday, my OH and I went out to start searching for a dog to add to our brood. We found one at a dog event on Sunday from a local shelter. We don't know his breed, but several people have said that he is likely to be a Labrador mix. He's about 4 months old and we're thinking that he's going to get pretty big. He's sweet, playful, and loves sleeping beside the sofa while the OH plays video games. His name is Max.

As you might expect, the cats are not happy about this development. They hiss when he approaches and sniff him while he sleeps. They've batted at him a couple times if he approaches too quickly, but so far he's only interested in playing with them. The little princesses are not interested in playing with him.

It might take a while, but I think the cats will reach a point where they will finally decide to ignore him. (hey, I can hope, right?)

We've had Max for only one day and I already adore him. I don't know whether I count myself as a cat person or a dog person. Maybe just an animal person. We'll see if one of my characters picks up a new pet in the revisions.

Congrats on the new family member!! He is so cute! Yes, the cats will eventually get used to him. It takes some cats longer than others. I have two cats and a dog and they get along swimmingly. Best of luck with the new pup.

What a cute puppy!! The cats will get used to he might get batted a couple of times, but they'll learn to love him. He's just too darn hard to resist!
