Came across this forum a couple hours ago. Awesome forum. Am not yet a doberman owner, but hopefully will be bringing home a red male in about three months. One thing my wife and i are concerned about are our cats. 10 year old male, and a 8 year old female. Both cats are very outgoing and playful with each other. Always involved with what we are doing. Not the kind of cats that hang out in one corner of the house all day. Very social. We don't worry that the dog will hurt the cats, but we don't want the cats to feel like they need to hang out under the beds the rest of their lives. Anyone have any experience bringing home a put to a couple of adult cats. Also, both cats have claws on front paws. Advise would be great. Thanks.
