As many of you will know after the sad death of our dog Abbie we brought Nancy our Ridgeless Ridgeback into the family last October. It meant another new introduction to Boo our seven year old Cat. Boo had grown to love Abbie and Charlie. He played tirelessly with Charlie and would nuzzle close to Abbie and fall asleep. New bouncy excitable pup was another matter and we had to go back to square one of gentle integration and ensuring Boo still very much held his rightful place.

They are now best of friends, Boo warns Nancy when she is trying his patience and they both nuzzle against each other with affection. It is interesting to see Nancy is very cautious and even she seems to know you leaving sleeping cats lie!img_0931
