Introducing pets proves to be a hassle for couples

Couples who are thinking about moving in together are considering how their animals get along.

Couples who are thinking about moving in together are considering how their animals get along.

Pet owners interested in packing up and moving in with their significant other might want to consider how their pets get along with each other first.

A recent Associated Press article proved that introducing new pets for a couple can be stressful. An Atlanta couple moved in with each other after being wed and quickly found out their pets constantly bumped heads.

The couple merged three cats together and has had trouble ever since. According to Dr. Chessie Green, head of the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Association, introducing pets after moving takes time, patience, medication for the pet or the help of an animal trainer or behaviorist.

"It goes pretty well for probably eight out of 10 of my clients who blend their families," she said. "Most people don't consider their pets before moving in. Sometimes people are forced to find them new homes because they don't get along or somebody is allergic."

According to the Humane Society of the United States, there are approximately 86.4 million domestic cats in the United States, which shows merging animals might come up often.
