Unhappy Puce needs a home without dogs

Puce has been adopted by myself , from Badger , at the end of January.


Unfortunately , he is not getting use to the dogs and has attacked 2 of them. Even if the dogs stay clear of him , even if they make a detour so they won't walk past by him , he gets very mad at them and will charge if he can. :sad: I know it sounds weird but , all the dogs here are now afraid of him the dogs are now anxious around him and Puce is not a happy cat here.

Puce is very friendly with other cats , and warms up to his humans after a while. Not sure he would do good with small kids , and of course , no dogs !!

Me & Badger are now trying to find him a forever home.

I'm really sorry Puce :sad:

For a better picture , click on the original adoption link.

I am so sorry, Frenchy . You can never predict how animals will react to each other until you take them in. You must do what is best for all.

Aww Frenchy, I am so sorry. I thought Puce was settling in well. Is there a way you and Badger can do a trade? Badger can take Puce back and you can adopt another one of hers that may be more dog friendly? Just a thought.
to you. I know you must feel pretty bad. :sad:
Puce - you shouldn't be so silly. You have a fantastic mom there!! Be nice to the doggies!!!
Assumptions do nothing but make an ass out of u and me.

We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!

Thanks guys , I am in no rush to let go of Puce so I'll make sure to find the best home for him.

14+ , I won't be adopting more cats .... it's hard to find one that is ok with other cats AND dogs. And with the foster dogs coming in and out .... I'll stick with Monsieur , Paddy and Coco

Think he could whip the Pack into shape, Frenchy? I need a cat that can stand against a crowd.
