Happy Tales

Scarlett + Oliver = LOVE

Scarlett & OliverWe have three Cavalier King Charles spaniels, and we had always assumed we could never adopt a cat because they always barked at animals on TV and had never been socialized with cats, only dogs.

After much thought, we decided to go for it. I had seen a trainer on TV introduce a dog and a cat, and when we went to pick up the cat—who we named Scarlett O’Hara—we took our oldest male, Gatsby, with us so the alpha male would be the first introduction. The staff and volunteers at the League gave us great advice, and after about two weeks, all the animals could roam a room with supervision. Amazingly, they fell in love as a family quicker than we imagined.
