After bringing home our new kitten for the first time, he was very scared and nervous. He hid under the couch for the first 2 hours. We have 3 golden retreivers, so we knew the big dogs may be overwhelming. We finally pulled the couches out to get him, when the dogs saw him for the first time. All three were very curious trying to get close and sniff him. He was shaking and trying to hide at first, but after realizing how sweet they were, he jumped down from the couch and began to rub up against them. He played with all three dogs for the next hour, rubbing against them, going in and out of their legs, hopping, and running around.
