Clare?


This has been offered to us. Dare we take her? Why are we even hesitating? Poor Francis the Cat, whose world will be rocked. After a few trips to the animal shelter, we had recently decided that maybe we shouldn't try to introduce a dog into the house with Francis. He had a very traumatic kitten hood and is extremely skittish. But she's darling, isn't she? And our idea had always been to get a puppy and a kitten and name them Francis and Clare (after the two saints). What does everyone think?

OMG! She's adorable! How can you say no? Francis will get used to her. I had a 7yo cat of great grumpiness and we got a puppy. The first think Kamir did was hiss at the little thing. After that he resigned himself to Godzilla's presence and while they never became friends, they were somewhat companionable.

Cuteness embodied, I think! We are hesitating to get a kitten because we already have one cat.. but as Stefanie, who has experience in these things, points out, animal mixes do learn to get along in the end.

I came late to the game, but what did you decide? She's adorable. I am, as you know, a HUGE dog person, and I think ultimately dogs and cats end up getting along decently enough.

Clare does look like a sweet dog and a good size for Francis. I think it would be hard to say no.

Everyone, I think we will be picking her up and introducing her to Francis later on this week. Wish us luck!

Cam, not yet. But she will be soon. Stay tuned...
