A letter to my cousin Pewter

Mom and Dad have been busy doing boring stuff, and I’ve been enjoying our spring weather with open window time. Things are much more exciting at my cousin Pewter’s house so I thought I’d share a letter I sent her.

My cousin Pewter

Pewter is a 14-year old lady cat who recently had her home invaded by a 8-month old dog-sister named Sadie.

My new dog-cousin Sadie

Unfortunately, Sadie is still trying to learn that kitties are not to be chased and Pewter can’t freely roam her house like she used to unless Sadie is outside, on a leash, or in her kennel. Pewter mostly stays in the bedroom and her moms have put a baby-gate at the door that she can get under but Sadie can’t get past. I feel bad for Pewter that she’s having to put up with a puppy so I sent her a letter and some goodies that might help her situation.

goodies for Pewter and Sadie

I hope Pewter and Sadie enjoy these goodies while they’re learning to live with each other. And I hope Pewter isn’t too stressed with a rambunctious young dog in the house. I’m only 12 years old and I wouldn’t want to deal with a hyper dog, so I suspect 14-year old Pewter is not happy with her new family member. Paws crossed that things get better soon.

    Oh Raven, poor Pewter. We can only ‘magine. We sure hope they get things worked out soon, so Pewter can have her house back. Big hugs

    Luv ya’

    Dang, somebody didn’t put a lot of thought into that new addition. At least we added kittens.

    • Raven says:

      They wanted a doggie and doggie needed a home, but I know I wouldn’t want a puppy intruding on my peaceful routine. Mom is thinking about getting kittens this year, but she’s even wondering if that’s such a good idea for me.

  3. We have two crazy puppies here, but we’ve gotten them under control now.

  4. How nice of you to send Pewter those treats and things. We sure hope she and Sadie learn to live together peacefully.

    • Raven says:

      Her mom said she’s very treat oriented so I’m hoping that big bag of treats will be useful for their daily training sessions.

    How nice to send Pewter a care package! I hope the new dog gets trained soon – I work with dogs a lot as part of my therapy pet program, and they are not allowed to chase me or get too “friendly” either. So I know this guy will get it eventually.

    • Raven says:

      I hope so. It will just take time for her to get settled in her new home, practice training, and grow out of the crazy puppy stage.

    That was very sweet of you to do Raven. I feel very bad for Pewter having to change her patterns because the puppy is after her. I hope she will be trained to leave you alone. I always get annoyed at my niece’s dog for chasing her cats. She claims they defend themselves, but I still don’t like the idea of them having to be in hiding.

  7. Angel and Chuck would beat up any puppy that came too close, but they surely would be upset! Here’s hoping Pewter’s new situation irons out quickly!

  8. Your poor cousin! The indignity to have to tolerate any intruder! Caroline–who’d as we all know would rather be an only cat–can totally relate. You’re such a good cat to send a care package to her, Raven.

  9. That is so sweet. It can be hard when a new sibling arrives on the scene. Usually, it all works out with time and love. XO

    What a sweet idea to help Pewter through this rough time, Raven! We hope she can get back to having her whole house soon. We love dogs here, but they can be jerks sometimes! 🙂

    Yikes, Poor kitty. I feel sorry for it. That little puppy doggie has a lot to learn. I hope things settle down for them soon.

  12. BZ Dogs says:

    Poor Pewter! Some retirement. Let’s hope the fur settles down soon.

  13. Sounds like Pewter is having a rough time of it. Hope some extra attention helps.

    I hope all the new added stress doesn’t send a senior cat like Pewter to an early grave.
