With our fur babies, most pet parents prefer to believe that they are in control. But at Meaghan’s home, the cats were the most in control of her Pit Bull pup.
When the Pittie puppy, Uly, arrived at his new home with Meaghan, he wanted nothing more than to be next to his cat friends. “So, right away, he started picking up their quirks,” said Meaghan.
Meaghan thought there might be another reason her Pit Bull started emulating the cats. “All he’s known is living with two cats,” said Meaghan. “He thinks, ‘This is great. We’re all the same.’”
Unfortunately, not all the animals were so accepting of Uly. One of Meaghan’s cats, Oscar, was more introverted. “Oscar doesn’t put up with any of Uly’s foolishness,” said Meaghan.
Meaghan’s other cat, Earnest, on the other hand, was interested in Uly from the beginning. Unlike his feline sibling, Earnest enjoyed how rambunctious and playful his new canine brother was.
Even though Earnest and Uly’s relationship was hectic, it was what both animals wanted. “[Earnest] loves initiating play. He loves snuggling together,” said Meaghan. “They really like to create chaos together.”
Uly was different from other dogs, but Meaghan would not have it any other way. “[Uly] wants to fit right in,” said Meaghan. “And, at the end of the day, he really does.”
