Cats show love in marvelous ways–to their kittens, to each other, and to their chosen people. That glorious picture was shared in my Kitty Publishing Group and just may end up in a future book! If you’ve got great feline pix to share–or pix for my Puppy Publishing Group–I hope you’ll check ’em out. Lovey dovey is fine, but anyone who’s ever lived with a fur-kid knows it’s not all snuggles and purrs.
What happens when the furry love of your life hates your date? Has that ever happened to you? Would you break up with him/her if the pets objected? Should owners listen to their pets’ opinion? What would you do if your date’s pets hated you? When I was in high school my boyfriend’s mini-Dachshund Greta tore up my sparkly purse. Maybe she was a fashion critic, ya think? She took the treats I brought and still hated me. We broke up later–me and the boyfriend, that is. Greta won.
There’s only so much I can fit into an Ask Amy, so I stopped with the “sock trick” recommendation. And sometimes it works to break the rules–witness my colleague Ingrid King’s blog about intros of her new kitten. So thinking outside the conventional wisdom, what’s worked for you?
