New Addition

We are getting a puppy, yay! We don't get him until the end of December. My cat, Lucifer has been around small/medium sized dogs & seems to really enjoy being around them. He isn't around the dogs on a 24/7 basis. The puppy we are getting won't get much bigger than the size dogs Lucifer has been around. How did you guys introduce a new pet to your existing pets? Is there any suggestions or advise on this topic?

Thanks so much!

Puppies are curious and playful, and may be too rambunctious to meet a cat immediately, so take it slow and gradual to be on the safe side. You don't want the cat to scratch the puppy or the dog to nip the cat. Here's a good site with a good approach.
