The dogs like to spend time in my room. My cat, therefore, is not spending much time with me. She just got used to Moonpie, but Finn will very occasionally decide to be a jerk and lunge at her. We're working on the concept, but it's going to be a long while before she's comfortable anywhere near him.

And I like the dogs, I do... but they don't purr, and their fur is the wrong texture, and they don't knead or bump foreheads, and they don't smell right. They are not, in fact, cats.

This is a bit of a problem, but we're coping.

Finn has stopped howling. He still barks when we're out of sight, but he's now consolable, and will often shut up before he sees us return, if he just hears us. Also, he's started snatching from Moonpie occasionally, which I don't want, but at least it's even-pawed now. She snatches from him, he snatches from her, I ultimately take whatever-it-is away from both of them.
