Cat Lover turned Havanese mom

(I need a second post to be fully activated in the forum so ....)

Pippin is my first dog as an adult (that is MINE). We have been mostly cat people with a random stray dog that lived with us until it found a forever home and a short term foster of a friends dog while they were deployed in Japan.
My husband got Pippin because we are almost an empty nest and he knew I would need a distraction

Both my husband and I were ďcat peopleĒ our whole lives too... Then came Kodi... then Pixel... then Panda... then our last beloved kitty passed away. And you know what? We donít think we will be getting another kitty! LOL!

Welcome, I am new too. My Hav Dexter is about 2 1/2 and we got him for the same reason you did...almost empty nesters and our beloved corgi had developed dementia. We have a cat Oreo and he and Dexter play very well together. But after getting Dexter Iíve decided Iím a Havanese person!! They are so fun and brings a smile to face all day long❤️

I am 65 and have also been a cat person my entire life until 11 years ago when I got my two first dogs ever. I also have a 15 year old kitty. I didnít even know what a Havanese was when I got Mia so I guess I lucked out.

Just wanted to add that Mia gets along great with my cat. However, my yorkie...well it is way too far beneath a yorkieís dignity to accept a cat as his equal. Although no one has come to blows, there is a certain tension in the air as he competes with my cat for top dog position! The cat just ignores him...even tries to sneak in his crate for an occasional nap to really stir the pot!

This YouTube is very accurate as far as my dog/cat experience!

Pippin and Ninja love each other. Ninja (the cat) often sleeps in Pippins crate during the day.

<sigh> I WISH Snowbelle had loved the dogs... She used to corner them in the kitchen and swat them on the nose!

Sadly Ninja will be moving out next month when my adult daughter and her husband move into their new house. Pippin is going to miss his kitty brother but I am ready for less furry dust bunnies to clean up
