I am a new member and a new owner to a beautiful 10 week old Maine Coon or Maine Coon mix. We got her from a rescue and they told us she was a he. We took her to the vet to get acquainted and the vet wasn't sure, because of the size. We just took her back for shots and found out he is a she.

So, now we have a beautiful black Maine Coon kitten. The vet also thinks she isn't full Maine Coon, but we don't care.

My 21 year old son wanted a dog from the beginning, but when he was around one, his allergies acted up. Now, he is wanting a dog, we are thinking of one that has been good for those with allergies, but I am worried about the kitten.

Is it hard to introduce a puppy to a home where there is a kitten? I know cats typically rule the house and I am concerned about adding a dog to the mix.

Thanks.

Nancy

Hi Nancy ! Welcome aboard ! Concats for the new kitten. No matter what breed she is or how pure she is, I'm sure she is still your beloved fur-baby... What's her name (or have you given her a new name, knowing that she's a girl instead of a boy ?)

Be rest assured to adopt the puppy, as long as you properly handle the introduction process.

Hi Nancy, and welcome to the forum good choice on the kitty - I also have a maine coon called Sasha, and another little girl called Pixie, pics in my profile.

Irene is right, there should be no problem, especially as they are both still babies!

You must post some pics of her, and yes - tell us her name

Welcome! I think it will be less hard making a kitten and a puppy friends than making them friends when they are adults

I'm Katrine, I have a Maine Coon cat called Anastasia. I have pics of her on my album and I hope you will post some pics very soon!

Hi Nancy, welcome to the club!

Don't think it will be a problem to get a puppy now.

Hope to see pix soon!
