This is the first time I have ever introduced a new cat into a dog only house. Chloe (the newly adopted cat) came home on Sunday and Lucy (our boston terrier) is beside herself with curiosity and excitement. Chloe is more and more tolerant of Lucy's annoying behavior but still gets upset when Lucy gets in her face for too long.

I know that it can take months for a cat to adjust to a new dog coming home. How long will it take for these two to settle down? Has anyone else experienced the new cat into a dog home adjustment period? I have a feeling that once the novelty wears off and Lucy starts acting like her normal self, Chloe won't have a problem with her at all! It's so frustrating to watch Chloe accept Lucy's sniffs until Lucy's pushes her too far and scares her!

Wow, thanks! That's a really great article. Fortunately, we're a little ahead of the game since both of them have been exposed to the other's species in their past homes. We just have to help them learn to trust each other!
