Darlene is the opposite, watches out the door to see if someone, anyone, will come for a visit so she can have someone to play with her. She's the most outgoing greyhound I've ever seen.
Leo doesn't bother the fish, he just sits on top of the couch and watches them.
How big do Greyhounds get? Are they good family dogs? Are they guard dogs at all?
She's beautiful, and so are you for giving her a loving home.
When Bella meets "the toddler" that will be fun for her. :p
But it is a wonderful lesson that you can teach your child
so early in life, about the love of animals and the importance
of being extra kind to them.
I usually get cats from the kitten stage, this is the first adult cat I've rescued and it's different. Kittens are more open to humans as they usually don't know any better. This cat is not as trusting. I have to work for it..lol
It sounds like you're making greyt progress with her quickly. It's a good sign that she was submissive to Leo, so hopefully there will be peace. He just wants to be dominant cat.
Greys are generally very good with kids. I had a female who was only 44 pounds, and probably the top weight would be a male at almost 100 pounds. Most of them are in the 50-65 pound range. They are loving companions, extremely loyal and devoted, but not good guard dogs. Many people who love cats adopt greys, as some say they have a cat like demeanor. They're extremely graceful, but you've got to get one that has been "cat tested". Some of the racing pigs bait them with kitties. Xena just yawns when she sees a cat, pays no attention to them. Darlene from the beginning was labelled as not cat safe. I don't know how she'd be with them, but she sure stares at the cats in the neighbor's back yard through the fence. The cats used to come in our yard, but no more. :D
I adopted Darlene because she had two strikes against her---she's a black greyhound and not cat safe. The cat safe greys go fast and any other color is adopted before the blacks. I don't get it, think the black greys are beautiful. To me their advantage is people think they're guard dogs and think they're a dobie.
