Question
Hi,

I have a dog (Boo-boo). He is 5 months old (Pom) and very friendly. Now I want to adopt a cat. Are there any issue known of such combination?


Answer
Hi
I haven't heard of any particular problems with Poms and cats, it really is down to the individuial personalities of the dog and cat. My only suggestion is that you introduce them to each other very slowly so that there is no stress caused. Please reads my page about introducing cats to each other (link below) the principle is the same for a dog.
