    We have just been offered to home a 5 week kitten who has no Mummy and been found on the farm. We have a four month old daschund puppy and a four year old cat. I just wanted to know whether this will be possible with a puppy. The kitten will be able to have its own separate room away from the Puppy and cat. I have no experience of kittens as our cat came came to us when she was three. Any advice would be warmly welcomed. Thank you

    kittens and puppies get along great together, i wouldnt introduce just yet but wait for the kitten to be settled and about 9 weeks old.
    good luck and if you have any questions you can always ask on the kitten chat as more people visit that section.:)

    we always had pups and kittens together as kids and it was easier than introducing pups to adult cats.

    Best age to introduce them, just wait until the kitten is a bit bigger.
