It's certainly a juggling act, making sure everyone's happy. I feel bad for the cats. They've been here for a couple years now and were the center of attention. Now they have had to adjust to a little less attention due to the puppy. Their only guaranteed time with us is at night, when Edison is in his crate. They come and snuggle right before bed. Edison's just found his loud bark and none of us are used to it. So the cats take off running. Poor guys. BUT...the cats are not totally innocent, just like you said. They soooo mess with Edison during the day, especially Newton. He was our baby before Edison so there's a little rivalry going on.
