nanees1 says: A friend of ours had a cat that had a litter of kittens. Joy and her family know I’m a cat lover so when they would see me they would ask if I wanted a kitten. I said no. They would tell me how cute the kittens were. I believed them. I still didn’t want one. I had a German Shepherd and four adult cats. I can say no – until I see the kittens – then I weaken. That’s what happened! I kept saying no then one day stopped over to visit and see the kittens. Of course I feel in love with all of them and six week old Casey came home with me. He was so tiny! I had four adult cats, would he get hurt? I was confident I could get everyone to accept him I just didn’t know how long it would take. Our German Shepherd, Zeke, was very curious and wanted to sniff Casey from head to toe. Our cats, Jake, LeAnne, Sambuca and Onyx made their displeasure known by hissing every time Casey walked in their direction. They would hiss and run. I was relieved they didn’t seem inclined to swat. In hindsight, they probably should have swatted. I kept Casey and his litterbox in our bedroom at first. I didn’t want him roaming the house until I was sure everyone was getting along. In the middle of the night I would wake up. Casey would be tapping me on the face. I’d open my eyes and see this wide awake kitten who now wanted to play! We played. About a week into Casey’s joining our family, I noticed Casey walking up to Sambuca and touching him. Sambuca did not hiss this time. Casey touched Sambuca again. This time the touch lasted longer. Again, there was no hissing. The third time there was no tentative touch, Casey jumped onto Sambuca’s back and began biting! I froze. To my relief and delight Sambuca began playing with Casey! One by one, Casey wore down the rest of the cats until now, at age nine weeks, he rules the house! He has attacked every one of the cats and our Shepherd, Zeke, who I might mention weighs in at 95 pounds! It’s quite funny to see cats that are 16 pounds running to escape a tiny kitten! They still don’t swat him! It’s been three weeks since Casey came to live with us. Our house is livelier! I laugh constantly at his antics and I am so very glad I got a kitten! It turns out I needed a kitten after all!
