Catdad adventures in learning how to take care of our new foster dog

We got a foster dog! He’s an 8 year old schnorkie with silver fur. We already have a foster cat! She hates him. I grew up with a cat but have never taken care of a dog before. My girlfriend grew up with a dog but has never taken care of a cat before. New and exciting adventures!

I’ve successfully walked him twice by myself and stopped him from lunging at multiple dogs. I only panicked once when he was standing by the door and I thought he was going to pee at any minute (apparently I had plenty of time to get dressed and take him out), meanwhile the cat was screaming at me for food and for paying attention to this dog in her space.

Still not entirely sure what to do with him once we get home, he just keeps looking at me expectantly? He’s a cutie though. I said he was too high energy for me and my girlfriend informed me he’s actually a very low-energy dog…

He was abandoned and clearly abused at some point, pulling out the dog toys or touching him in certain ways makes him flinch. But everyone outside coos at him when I take him for walks so I’m confident he can get adopted easily.

Now I just need to negotiate paying attention to both of them so neither gets jealous…more a problem with the cat, whose eyes bugged out when she saw me petting the dog by the couch (“our spot”). We almost cuddled on the couch but the dog was too close so she hissed and ran away. She’s getting better though!

So my life lately is like:

- Anxiously waiting for/pestering my doctor to give me my blood work results so I can maybe start hormones soon???

- Trying to get a new job before the effects of said hormones start showing. (I practically got offered a job today, but I’d be making 2.25 less an hour and that’s just not gonna work.)

- Realizing I probably will not get a job with benefits by my 26th birthday so yay for domestic partnerships…

- Wanting cute summer clothes, knowing I should not be spending money on clothes when my body is about to become radically different.

- Emotional roller coasters like whoa.

- Feeling like I’ve lost years of my life to dysphoria and I didn’t even know it.

- These hormones are still hypothetical hormones at this point and yet are dictating many of my actions.

- Every time I bring my lunch to work instead of buying lunch that’s $8 in the top surgery fund.
