“They were starving to death and weighted two thirds of their current weight.
It took me a year to move and get them to adapt to living with my 2 cats.
I gave them about a month of gradual transition.
I started with baby gates in the hallway and gradually increased their space accessibility. I took them on leash walks in the living room.
I also took them to two rounds of obedience training in Los Angeles.
I made two separate trips across the country– one with the cats and another with the dogs. I thought it would be less stressful for all of us.
Once I got to New York City I moved into a studio and within a week it was fine.
Everybody found their corner.
I’ve been here 2 1/2 years and it’s been fine.”
