Everyone loves a cosy nap, but few creatures have proved to be as proficient at the ancient art of sleeping as cats. We’ve all seen our kitties snoozing in sunbeams and nestling into cushy nooks on the couch, but the latest contender in the professional feline napping stakes has brought an innovative new cross-species twist to the field.
As captured on video and shared via TikTok, this tuckered out, little, grey-and-white kitty decides to repurpose one of the floppy ears of the household’s resident Beagle into a blanket. Nothing like being resourceful in your napping routine, right?
While the cat and dog stars of the viral video seem like best pals, it’s important to remember that there are a few considerations you should make if you’re contemplating adding canines to a feline household or vice versa. Read on for some helpful advice!
Introducing A New Dog To Your Cat
Here are a few vital tips for introducing a new dog to your incumbent cat:
- Try and adopt both a young cat and a young dog, as this way they are more likely to become friends.
- In general, adult cats do better with adult dogs rather than rambunctious puppies.
- Avoid dogs with high prey drives, such as Jack Russell Terriers, Yorkshire Terriers, and Siberian Huskies.
- At first, make sure that you move your cat’s food bowls, litter box, and bedding to a separate room so that they can have private space and sanctuary if needed.
