New friends....

Meet Ghost...in the fall, Ghost found her way to us. She made herself a home in the garage and Tony gave orders that she was not allowed in the house. That was until one cold night in October when I heard Tony at the back door calling Ghost in the house.

She has adjusted well to the dogs, because she thinks she is a dog. Which fits in well with our pets, since Blue thinks he is a lab and not a basset. She will not use the liter box, but will ring the bell to go outside. She wants to go in and out with the dogs. So we just put her on their schedule and this little animal kingdom is happy.

We just love her! She even lets Sarah dress her up in American Doll accessories....one cool cat!
If you remember, we have two other pets which live in the house. Lily, our black lab, and Blue, a basset. Lily and Ghost get along beautifully and sleep on the sofa or bed together. Blue, has not adjusted as well....for the first few months he thought Ghost was a moving toy and chased her through the house.
Blue is learning Ghost is here to stay....she is not leaving.

Ghost has learned Blue has short legs and she doesn't have to be up very high to be out of his reach.

I am learning, it is a lot like parenting toddlers.

They are having to learn how to share....
and play nice...

and become friends
or even better
family!

What great babies...and yes it is alot like parenting toddlers..I have 7 dogs all from when they were tiny babies and anyone who says having baby animals isnt like having children never had baby animals!...lol

I think that if the animal adopts you, it's a perfect match. Ghost is one of those animals that fits because he needed you.
I'm hoping we find a perfect pet, like you did.

The newest member of your family is so cute! And smart too. Ringing a bell to go out?! I've never heard of a cat doing that! Glad all the animals are getting along together. :)
