Since Mom and Dad brought those DOGS into our house I have become an upstairs kitty. I refuse to come downstairs when the dogs are not locked in the kitchen.
Mom and Dad put the dogs in the kitchen when they are not at home and at night when everyone is sleeping. This is where they stay so they can not chew on things when nobody is watching. My dog brothers are still puppies and they have chewed a lot of things they are not supposed to like the walls, door frames and the kitchen cabinets.
I do come downstairs to sleep with Mom and Dad at night. Mom puts the dogs to bed about an hour before her and Dad go to bed and then I come down to get petted and go to sleep. The past few nights I have even come down to the landing to watch the dogs while they are out.
Mom is hoping that I will eventually come downstairs when the dogs are out but she doesn't think that will happen until they grow up a little and stop being puppies. I think she is right. I am the biggest cat in the family, as big as the dogs, but I am a scaredy cat. I hide whenever the doorbell rings or when Mom and Dad bring someone into the house.
My life upstairs is okay since I have two rooms to myself, a very big cat tree to lounge on, my own litter box, and plenty of food and water, and NO DOGS. The dogs are not allowed to come upstairs. My sister Maui stays with me for the most part. Sometimes she leaves to go downstairs, even when my dog brothers are out, but she always comes back. Mom and Dad come to visit me periodically and love on me so I am not left without attention.

You might come around them more as you get more use to them. I am kind of skidish and shy too.
Hugz and purrs, Sassy
I and my furbling angel, Suki also were not impressed with a dog-guy coming into our den...even though I came in as a kitten when he was about 2 years old...Suki got to know him from the get go...and she had more than her fair share of hissy fits!
Me? I just beat him up! MOL!!
Minko seems to like the dog-guy for the most part. They even wash eachother's ears! MOL!
Dogs are kinda fun. You can swat them with your paw when they get out of line and snuggle with them when you want some affection. But don't let the humans see you snuggling!! Us cats have to maintain our reputations - MOL!
Miko, we get doggie visitors around here. Just remember you have claws. When those doggies try to head for the bedroom when Marrakech is sleeping, I just stand in the middle of the hallway and tell them,"you may go this far, and no further."
We don't snuggle with the doggies, but I bet we would if we got to spend more time with them.
Doggies can be fun! They make a good pillow to snuggle! We have a "Service Dog" that comes over our house it's mommy's daughter's Service Dog.
