Hi all. New on this forum and have been reading thoroughly about my idea with only to come up with mixed opinions. This November I will be getting my second boxer puppy at 8 weeks old. Previous puppy was adopted due to a move back to NYC. Now that I'm back settling in Denver for the moment I'd really like to have a friend for my pup as I won't have roommates. SO, I'm contemplating adding a short haired kitten right when I get my puppy. I've never owned a cat. I enjoy them, just not the same as my dogs. They both will grow up together in my apartment in the city. I would appreciate any thoughts, suggestions, especially with people that have had or been around this idea I'm having. The main concern for me are the claws on the cat. I've looked into these sorta covers I guess people glue on their cats nails to prevent damage to furniture, I figure they'll work for the puppy and both being babies I'm hoping that growing together will be the magic there. However if they play together as they get older and larger the nail issue is still there. I haven't totally rid myself of the thought of declawing a kitten either. Anyways, thank you for any input!
