Many posters have brought up the subjects of cats and the introduction to their Cairn. I had a 12 year old Maine Coone in mourning when I got Scruffy. It never occurred to me that she would not take immediately to her as she loved my beloved Razzle who went to heaven. After some gentle time, Kitty took to Scruffy.
