Though wedded life has come easily to Amy Smart, it's presented challenges to her pets, which include two 16-year-old cats and a 9-year-old rescue dog.
"It was definitely an adjustment bringing my pets in with Slim," Smart tells PEOPLE of life with husband Carter Oosterhouse's 4-year-old bulldog. "My cats, they've grown up with my dog, but [Carter's] dog didn't really ever know cats, was never around cats."
Lucky for Slim, Smart's pair of felines have been nothing but hospitable during the adjustment process.

In Amy Smart and Carter Oosterhouse's marriage, the grass is always greener – in a good way.
The actress didn't even know who the HGTV carpenter was when they met. But it was an auspicious beginning. They did a project together for the Environmental Media Awards, which would turn out to be a passion for both of them.
"We got assigned to adopt a school garden together," Smart, 35, told PEOPLE Saturday at the 2011 EMA's in Burbank, Calif. "We met, and we were both in relationships, so we just remained friends. And then we both got out of relationships around the same time, a year ago this summer. And then a year later we got married."
