It's always exciting to add a cuddly new pet to your life, except maybe when you have to introduce it to another pet that has already staked claim to your home. That's especially true if one's a dog and the other's a cat. But whether you're introducing a new dog to your cats - or a new cat to your dogs - it doesn't have to be hard. We are all familiar with the cartoon dog endlessly chasing Tom round the garden and through the house and, all too often, this happens in real life too. So can a dog and cat who don't know each other eventually live together in peace and become friends? The answer is yes, providing certain conditions apply and care is taken during introductions. Introducing a new dog to the home if you have cats, or a new cat to the home if you have a dog, can be problematic. However, it is not impossible, providing you have the right combination of dog and cat. And these cats and dogs seem to match each other perfectly!
