So today we have had Marti on year. He is one of the few that were planned, then unplanned, then planned again as he was in foster, and had always lived with dogs having been hand fed as a kitten.
We have always wanted a cat that was friendly with dogs (our cats all get on with the dogs but as the cats were here first none of them were really friendly) so we had decided to adopt Marti and let him have the space so sadly created by the death of Sophie.
BUT we felt guilty so decided to give him a home as well, and what a great decision that has turned out to be.
First, he is just a great cat. Friendly with everyone and very much at home here.
Second, Tobi and he are totally inseparable and being two newbies at the same time we had no integration issues at all as they just occupied themselves rather than impose on the other cats habits.
Was a great decision to adopt him, and has been a great year with him so let’s hope we have many many more.
