Last night there was a situation in which a cat needed somewhere to go or would likely have been drowned... so I volunteered my upstairs because my doggos don't go up there. Kitty has however made herself comfortable in the house and comes downstairs despite the dogs and wants love and fuss from my daughter who now wants to keep the cat... I can afford to keep her... I have the time etc... but I need the dogs to accept her, I've explained to my LG that thats what we need to do and if they aren't all happy we will have to find a rescue place or something for kitty cat. Of course its new to the dogs, how long is a reasonable amount of time for me to keep the cat and see how it goes?
