My 2 year old female chihuahua mix "Kiki" and 6 yr. old male Siamese "Spooky" both adopted from the same shelter a couple of years a part. Getting along, not too shabby. However I have a female cat who refuses to have anything to do with either of them.

She loves the outdoors but thinks the deer are just bigger boxers.

I wish I could get a shot of my 3 all together, as hiker88 did in that fantastic shot posted a while back. While trying, I satisfy myself with pictures of them individually. This is my youngest, twitchy and ready to pop.

I recently installed some shelves on the wall to give my youngest kitty (pictured above) the ability to climb up to an alcove near my 10-foot high ceiling. She loves going up there and hanging out, where she can look down on us all. My eldest doesn't feel like climbing all the way up. She has taken to sleeping all day on the lowest shelf.

Nice. Got to get my dog a new nylabone for Christmas.

Btw, have you settled in a new location yet?

Here's a view of the whole set-up. I have since cleared some more space up near the ceiling so that the young 'un can climb up there and hang out. She has a blanket on top of a box that she loves to curl up on and look down on us all from above. There is a cat tree just out of the frame to the left. She can leap from the cat tree to the first shelf, then onto the CD rack, and the final leap takes her up to her alcove hang-out.

It's a small apartment, but it has 2 cat trees, 2 windows with great views of squirrels, birds and a dog park (one of them is a bay window with a comforter that has become covered in cat fur, as 2 of them are longhairs.) They have 2 litter boxes, 3 water bowls including a water fountain, and multiple places to scratch including a table leg with sisal wound around it to save space. I'm quite proud of how this small place has become a little kitty haven.

On the other hand, there are still times when I have to compete for space on the sofa........

My cats are packing their bags and hopping the next bus to California. They want to live with you. They are now scoffing at the two cat trees in their current abode.

Looks like kitty nirvana at your home. You have very lucky kitties!

There is a neighbor's cat that hangs around our front porch, and when she hears him meowing, she goes nuts, as do the boys. I wish we could have a cat or two, but I haven't met a beagle yet who will let us. I guess we'd have to get a pup and a kitten at the same time, and I'm not sure I would live through that!

Some pets learn to adjust and co-exist with other animals, and some even bond and befriend each other. Sometimes, it's just not going to happen no matter how much time you give it. I know people whose cats barely tolerate each other, even after years of cohabiting. I don't think I'd like to live in that sort of atmosphere.

Fostering can be great for that if you're trying to create a harmonious multiple pet household, but it can also be good to recognize limits and act to protect the well-being and comfort of the furry companions we already have.

However, every time I look at the posts from foster agencies on my Facebook feed, I fall for almost every pet in need that I see
