A cat followed me home two nights ago, it is still young. I am posting it in the lost and found. If no one claims the cat, I have no problems keeping him. However, my two 4yo boxers may. What can I do to help the process along? Right now the cat hides under my bed and the dogs sniff like crazy.
Any tips would be most helpful,

First, I recommend that the new addition be checked by the vet. You do not ant to introduce any new parasites in the house ( fleas, worms etc.. ) Second I would give the animals time to adjust. I am sure the kitten is terrified. When you are sure that the dogs will not harm her try to hold and pet her while the dogs sniff her. She may start to realize that the dogs won't hurt her. This all takes TIME ( weeks to months).
