Oh I'm sure he would be gentle with her,I think they would have a blast playing chase.My cats and dogs always played together.Bad cat is a big boy,I had one,Lucky was his name,he weighed 23# and he was so gentle with Ditto.Ditto weighed in at a whopping 1 1/4 # when we brought him home.Lucky would get into fights protecting his little brother.LOL How do Badcat and Peaches get along ? I'm sure they play like crazy together and get into all kinds of trouble together.Smile

Hi Susan,As I'm typing here she is sleeping in my tall laundry basket.I made kind of a sling with a blanket so she is half way down so she can't jump out and get hurt.Every so often Romeo comes over and stands on his hind legs and peeks over the top of the basket.He is so big next to her and he is so sweet with her.I know I've told you how wild he can be but he isn't with her.I know this will change as she gets bigger,then it will be Katie bar the door LOL.They will be tearing up the house together.Romeo just came and laid next to the basket.I don't know how to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer.I'll have my daughter in law show me how,then I can post pictures of the two of them.

Badcat and Peaches are "real" brother and sister.  For them the world has never existed without the other

Oh it's 1:30 am and Juliet decided she wants to play,so we played awhile and now she is winding down and ready to go back to sleep.We had a few hours of sleep,so here I am typing.Romeo and Juliet love each other.they like to snuggle and sleep together.Paper training is going well.Both of them will be paper trained because I can't go out with them.Romeo is paper trained already,he will not go outside at all even when he goes for a walk,he waits to get home.I really wished I had done that with my last two dogs also.When they get old it's too hard for them to go up and down the steps and it would have been a lot easier for me too.I think we may have turned a corner with Romeo's shredding everything in sight,he is occupied with the puppy for now.I hope that will stay that way.

It's too soon to tell but Juliet walked over to the paper this morning to go,so she is getting the hang of where to go and Romeo is helping her also.They just got through playing chase again so soon it will be lights out again.I don't know why but my cats enjoyed shredding paper too.We were kids when we got married and I remember buying only a couple of rolls every week and my cat Bubb would shred them and we really didn't have the money to replace toilet paper.Oh young love LOL.The last cat I had Ditto never used his litter box and always went out side to go.I was thinking of teaching Juliet to use a litter box,but the paper is easy enough I just change it several times a day or when needed.

 Cali, our" beasty girl" turned "sweetie", had been "off her feed"  for a few days; we worried  & gave her lots of ttention(she hated that)
,Made sure she had clean fresh water & tempted her w/ treats( roast beef, cottage ceese, turkey, scrambled eggs; cat treats.She ate tiny bits&  pieces and after nearly a week of th,,sher appetite has(fully)  recovered.Still no idea what the problem was; no fever or  obvious pain.Today she is  enjoying  a sunny spot by the living room sliders; on top of a couch cushion
( elevated off the floor foor( no draft) Smile      enjoying the life of a spoiled baby.Kiss

Oh No! These furry guys are good at doing this sort of thing you have to laugh.Romeo and Juliet,finished breakfast and had a good long game of tug of war,now it's nap time.Tomorrow is Juliet visit with the Vet,can't wait to see if everything is OK she seems to be healthy,but I'm always relieved after their first visit.
