Hello from Golden, CO

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Glad to have found this forum. My husband and I are owned by 3 cats -- Smithers (approx. 10-11 yrs.), Rusty (6 years) and newly adopted Stella (approx. 1-2 yrs.) -- and 2 dogs -- Gatsby, a 6 yr. old Greyhound and Gordy a 5 yr. old Golden Retriever mix.

Smithers and Rusty were adopted from the local animal shelter when I used to volunteer there years ago; we just adopted Stella from a local cat rescue group. Gatsby was adopted from Col. Greyhound Adoption and Gordy from a local Golden Retriever rescue group.

Both dogs are cat-friendly, but so far I haven't been able to convince Stella of that fact. She's spending most of her days hiding under the bed but she is coming out to eat and use the litter box. Any suggestions to help her overcome her fear will be greatly appreciated.

Hey JanieC, welcome to TCS! Nice to meet you and your big, furry family!! Sorry, I don't have any suggestions for Stella's problem. You might try posting it in the Behavior Forum--you'll probably get more replies if you make a thread about it there. So anyways, have fun here!!

Hi...Welcome here to TCS.
How long have you had Stella? If she`s fairly new, perhaps she will make the adjustment in a bit more time. If not, then i`m sure you will have some help by someone here. (Sorry, I don`t know how to help on this issue, as I only have 2 kitties and no dog at this time.....although we have talked about getting one...just not till hubby retires....dogs always seem to be on the wrong side of the door and I`m not too anxious to be the doorwoman.)
