I've been thinking about adding a cat to my household. I already have 4 dogs and I'm a bit worried about how they will act. How many of you have both cats and dogs? How did the dogs act when you added a cat to a dog household? I've had a cat before but we had to put her down a couple of years ago because she was really old and sick.
I'm looking at getting a male cat but I know they have a tendency to spray if they're not neutered early enough. Do they tend to have more health issues than females, mainly urinary issues? I work at a vet clinic and it seems we have more male cats coming in with medical issues than females.
Also do cats learn new names really quickly? I've been looking at a black and white male cat in my area named Po but I don't really like that name. If I were to change it would he start responding to the new name?
