Hi everyone. It’s looking likely that Ziggy and I will be moving into a new house next month and into what should be a much better living situation for me. I think Ziggy will love the new place, but there is a concern: one of my prospective roommates — whom I already know well — has an older dog, who will also be moving in. The dog and Ziggy have already met on a couple of occasions. Ziggy does not get along with other animals (he’s been stalking and beating up my parents’ cat during our holiday visit), and this big dog is no exception. Ziggy in fact attacked the dog last time she visited our apartment and left a few scratches on her nose. Not only that, it was almost impossible to keep Ziggy away from the dog’s dry food, and he managed to eat a few bits here and there every time the dog visited. Since these two will be living together, I’m wondering a.) how we will make sure that Ziggy’s blood levels won’t be affected by the stress of living with another animal and b.) how to prevent Ziggy from eating the dog’s food without us having to constantly monitor him? I already hate having to supervise my parents’ cat for large chunks of time while she uses the litter box (Ziggy attacks her while she’s peeing) so I can’t imagine having to keep a constant eye on him to make sure he doesn’t eat the dog food. Just looking for some advice!
