Help! Help My Humans Got A Puppy!

Dear Dr Basil

I am writing to you with great distress. My humans have brought home a new addition to our furmily, a pesky little puppy who is making my life miserable. I am constantly being disturbed by his presence, and he never leaves me alone. He is always following me around, attempting to play with me, and worst of all, stealing my food. I am at my wits' end and feel utterly helpless. Dr Basil, please help me! I need your expert advice on how to deal with this annoying puppy and reclaim my personal space. Sincerely, Mona aka A Frustrated Feline

This is my Expert Reply
Today I use the colour pink, as this is renowned for its nurturing and emotionally soothing properties. Therefore being the purrfect choice for this particular purroblem.
Dear Mona aka Frustrated Feline, I understand your distress, and I am here to help mew. Many cats have had to deal with pesky puppies in their homes, and I assure mew, there are ways to manage the situation. Here are some tips to help you deal with the puppy: 1. Establish boundaries: Your space is your own, and mew need to let the puppy know that. Make it clear to him that there are certain areas of the house that are strictly off-limits to him. Mew can use his presence as an opportunity to train your humans to set up some boundaries. 2. Stand your ground: If the puppy tries to engage mew in play, don't be afraid to assert yourself. Let him know that mew are not interested in playing with him at that moment. Mew can do this by hissing or swatting him away. 3. Keep your food safe: Puppies are notorious for stealing food, so mew need to keep your food in a safe place where the puppy can't get to it. Mew can use this as an opportunity to train your humans to keep your food in a secure location. 4. Create a safe space: If all else fails, create a safe space for yourself where the puppy can't bother mew. This can be a room or a cozy spot where mew can relax and unwind. Mew can also use this space to escape from the puppy when mew need some alone time.
Also remember that this new addtion to the furmily, while it's not purrfect at the moment, in time the puppy will settle down, and who knows, purrhaps mew will become supurr furiends. Remember, Mona, mew are the queen of the house, and mew deserve to have your own space. With these tips, Mew'll be able to coexist peacefully with the puppy and even enhance your daily life. Good luck!
Pawsitively yours,
Dr. Basil

  1. And to all kitty pawrents who want to get a pesky pup, make sure you've puppy-proofed your cat's area before the little one even comes home and train it to stay out of those places from the start.

  2. Sound advice, Basil. We have a woofie at home and we all adore him. He is very soft and we enjoy snuggling with him and playing with him. Thing of the puppy as a kitten variant. He will settle down!

  3. You're most wise, Dr. Basil. Sage advice.

    I linked this post to Awww Mondays.

    Have a fabulous day and week. Scritches to the kitties and a hug to mom. ♥

  4. A puppy! Wow! Fantastic advice for kitties who find this unexpected woofie in their home turf!

  5. I can;t imagine that Dr Basil. I really can't. Thank goodness there is no way Mom will bring one in unless it is an emergency to save the dog's life.

  6. That was good advise and remember Mona, you CAN train that puppy!
