Here kitty, kitty, kitty!
HERE I told you about my experiment with Blaze getting to know the cats. Her high prey drive and previous owners have made it quite a challenge.
I've been sitting with Blaze in front of the cat's door, while she lies down and feeds on cheese pieces. Then I will open the door and see if the cats are out and about.
This is really a good time to try, because the cats hibernate from the dogs during the winter months which makes for good practice to have the door open. Although most of the time we just saw this:
An empty cat room, as the cats were snug in their bed.
Once Boxer was in front of the door with his back turned to us and stayed that way for a few minutes before leaving.
Come here, doggy, doggy, doggy!!
And the other time Boxer was on the desk looking down at Blaze who was doing a very good job of being calm and in control of herself.
I try to do it at least once a day, but I've been lacking these past couple of weeks. No problem, we'll just try again.
I've been very impressed with my little girl. She has stayed lying down, which is HUGE, and she's been staying calm and in control. HUGE!!
So while it may not seem like much, Blaze is making great headway so far.
We will keep you up to date!
