    This is my new cat, Thuli.
    She cost me a fortune, but I got house in the deal. :)

    Thuli conveyed with the house we bought in Alexandria. I think the fact we were willing to take her leaned in our favor when we made the offer.

    Thuli's name comes from Hathul, which is Hebrew for "the cat". She's 6, but not sure what breed. So far, she seems to tolerate me. I'm not a cat person, and compared to my dogs she doesn't make much sense. She and the dogs haven't gotten accutomed to each other yet. If anyone has any tips on integrating dogs and cats, Thuli and I would appreciate it.

    My g/f got 2 kittens when she had a year+ old dog in the meantime.

    First off, the cats and dog were not near eachother... The cats were upstairs exclusively, the dog was downstairs... The cats got a tiny bit older and somehow began to go downstairs. The dog flipped (blue tick / coon dog mix so that was fun) The cats hated her and would hide. The boy cat would swat the dog made it bleed, etc...

    However, they eventually just clicked and now the cats brush up to the dog and even sleep next to it. They just need to get introduced slowly...

    Hatula yafa (nice cat)! I'd probably write it as Tuli based on the pronunciation. :smug:

    Six figures for a cat? Are you sure you didn't get her in the same shopping center where your wallet was stolen?
     
  5. thats cool, that looks exactly like my cat...as for the breed, its a mix breed cat, but i don't know which two


    first step though, get it off your cab!
    one thing about long haired cats is that they shed like crazy, and you will always have a layer of cat hair on your cab with that kind of covering

    You're lucky you dont have allergys. That house would have become impossible to live in with that cat. Oh theres gonna be hair on all your equipment, and maybe a few scratchmarks.
     
  9. Nice Bag End under the cat.
     
  10. Cats are cute and fuzzy and lazy, we mix well. My cat likes captain crunch and bananas.

    Eh, just let the cat and dog fight it out. They'll come to an understanding. One of my cat lets the dog chew on her head (really just the fur) and lick inside her ears. Very wierd. The other one just runs away and hides. When the latter cat comes in contact with the dog, it's like a mortal kombat game going on. Thoroughly entertaining.

    Mmmmm. That cat looks like quilted maple.
     
  13. Put the cat into a carrier. Then place the carrier somewhere where the dogs can't get to it. Then let the dogs and cat get accustomed to each others presence. Might take a while.

    Rock on

    This may be a stupid question, but is it possible to train a cat?
    If so, how?

    At six, it's a little old for training (but by all means keep a spray water bottle around, that works great for minor behavior modification)...

    I would keep the cat and dog separate for awhile, then slowly get them to learn that there's someone else there. One thing that was recommended to me for getting two cats to deal with each other is give them catnip separately on each side of a door that they can smell each other between... I think it helped make things a bit easier for our two cats (both were strays and older when we got them). They did still fight out some territory battles for awhile, but nothing too bad... now they play fight just for fun, but they do it rarely.

    By the way, adorable cat. She seems to have that rule the roost look... as long as the cat and dog can work out who's the boss (tony danza perhaps?) they should be fine.

    What kind of dog do you have? Hunting dog of sorts? High prey drive sort of dog?..ie....pit bull or American Bulldog or herding breed?

    I have a pit bull and an austrailian shepherd. When we bought our new house, the cat went first while the other animals waited their turns so to speak (these animals had never met). Pit bull stayed with my sister...the shepherd we didn't own yet. By the time the dogs came, the house already smelled like the cat. They co-exist quite nicely now. In fact, the dogs respect (FEAR) the cat. So this cat being a long time resident there may work to your advantage. Make sure you give the cat due credit though......as your dog may not be what you should be worried about. I've seen some dogs get really messed up by cats. Either way, like someone else had said, take it slow and careful and you should be ok.
