    Now...in your case..I would first let cat be in one room. Let him/her feel comfortable behind closed doors. The dogs can smell him/her through the door and believe me..they will. Little by little I'd bring the cat out and hold him/her on my lap. Let dogs approach and gently smell. Put cat back in safe room and repeat as necessary. When you feel the cat is ready to explore the house..keep dogs under control and just let the cat be. if one of the dogs acts aggressive..correct their behavior. Little steps will be best. Being there are three of them don't let them feed off each others excitement. I brought Harry in and Jake was amazing with him. They are truly best buddies! Don't be afraid...they will be curious but soon it will be b.o.r.i.n.g..
    I like this idea , great advise Ms. Becky

    thanks, Becky! Our family room has a door on it and I was already planning on putting his litter box in the laundry room which is right off the family room. The only bad thing about closing him off in the family room is my "office" is in there and that's where I do my school work and all three of the boys have to be in there with me. I suppose when I go into the family room, I can put the kitty into the laundry room and shut the door and then let him back out when the boys leave the room. If I try to shut the family room door without the boys going in there with me Sebastian and Oliver will bark, scratch, and cry at the door until they can come in with me. Such spoiled boys!!! Remy could care less sometimes. I'm hoping that I can introduce him to the kitten first since it sounds like they have the same kind of energy then Remy can "teach" the other heathens how to behave with him. I just realized, I don't even know kitty's name!!! Bad kitty grammy!
