cat
We have a male cat. He is very loving, loves to be carried around, sleeps in my mom' s arms at night. Siamese x persian. He is very afraid of thunder, but rule our complex. The other cats can only come out at night when he' s inside! My mom wants a little maltese poodle. Main reason to be company for the cat, because she travels a lot and he is very traumatised if she even only goes out for the day (he' ll bite her, try to stop her from leaving). She doesn' t want another cat because he fights with them. Would it be wise to get a little dog?

Dear Elizabeth

Some cats like dogs (after a while) and some don't. Difficult to say. I would invest in a Feliway diffuser before getting a dog.
