Cool New and going from a all cat world to a cat & dog

What fun!

Hi I am new, and as you can see I have a cat, really we(my mother sister and I) have three cats and have been looking into getting a Havanese for a long time now. We will be working on moving first to PA we are NYers now and once we all are set up and happy and the cats seem more then good with the move we so want and will be ready for a Havanese!!!

In my avatar is our cat Victoria she is two years of age now our oldest cat is Buttercup he is 12 and the baby is Bella she is almost a year old. We got Victoria for Buttercup after his brother died then Butter didn't play as much as he once did with Vic so we got her Bella. Now we have three wonderful cats and we can so see Vic who copies everything the others do and "say" so coping the pup >< she warms up to everyone very quickly and we can just picture her playing with the pup. The other two may take longer but they are very sweet it shouldn't be that long. We know the three day rule, and the smell rule we have done the intro thing many times. I also used to have pet rats they didn't run around but they even got use to them in time.

So hi all and I can't wait to get to know you all!

Welcome. I have 2 cats and 2 havanese. I went from a 2 cat world to this. The cats have accepted the dogs, but I can't say they are the best of friends. They all co-exist though. Good luck with your move and your future pup!

Welcome to the forum. You will learn a lot on here to get you prepared for your new puppy. We have an outside cat and Abby loves to go out to play with him. He loves her!

Welcome! I wish I could get a kitty playmate for Sophie, but allergies rule in our family *sigh*. Good luck with your move!

Unconditional love!

Welcome! I have two Havanese, a Sheltie and a cat. My cat is very used to dogs as we've had dogs her entire life. She tolerates them and puts up with their nonsense.

Welcome to the forum - I was a cat person before I found HAVS!!! I had two cats when I got our first Hav. They were my sweeties but I lost both within a month of each other less than a year after my first Hav came home. I love cats, but found that I am so happy with NO Hair!! I am in NJ and have Havanese playdates several times a year, so when you get your Hav!! Let us know, and keep an eye out for a NJ playdate!!!m
