in my limited experince:

old doggy + new kitty = on nom nom

new doggy + old kitty = apprehensive kitty, likely that the dog will obey the cat even when the dog grows to be much larger. good chance for friendship.

new kitty + new doggy = FRIENDS FOR LIFE

I think you might be retarded. Huskies are known for eating cats.

I had a cat. He died.

I got another cat - well, it just sorta moved in.
I got a puppy - he and the cat get along just fine.
I got another dog - he and the puppy are besties. The cat moved out.
I got another cat. They all get along fine, the two cats don't care for each other that much though.

I personally have a dog and my fiance had a cat. In our case we couldn't make it work, and our next door neighbor-a crazy cat lady-had to take his cat in I couldn't get rid of the dog for several reasons, so unfortunately it had to be kitty.
In another situation though, I had a different dog who used to be terrible with cats, and towards the end of his life was great with them. I guess it just depends on you, the dog and the cat? I'd say keep trying and if it eventually seems like its just too stressful on the animals, you'll cross that bridge when you come to it.

You're lucky that your cat doesn't run away. Instead of hissing and scratching, Tanner just ran away from Sage any time he saw Sage (American Bulldog). In turn Sage has always seen Tanner as prey. And that will never change.

Tanner has th run of the bedrooms upstairs, and sleeps by my head. The dogs have the run of the downstairs, and sleep there too. (Lola stays crated while we're not there still - 9 months old.)

It *sounds* like you're well on your way to good supervised family time. I'm willing to bet that you'll never get to the point where dog and cat can co-mingle while you're not there to manage them. Prey drive is just way too instinctual.

I'm not sure if I read your post as you had intended, but it sounds like you are concerned with your cat hissing. Don't be. Encourage it. The best thing in the world would be for your can to rip a nice scar into your dog's nose, teach him some respect, and your down never go near kitteh again. I wish Tanner would have - Sage would have never touched him. (Sage is a canine *****. Lola, however, would persevere.)

make it clear to your dog that messing with kittah is not tolerated... side with kittah on this one. kitty will know you support him and won't let him get eaten, kitty will have balls to resist getting eaten, and doggie will know that master likes kittah and wouldn't want her to eat him.

let them interact and come face to face with out you physically intervening unless it gets too crazy- provide the cat with an escape route in case things get dire.... can he go somewhere the dog can't get him in every room? ie on top of a high bookcase, other furniture, under a couch, etc

This has been my experience too.

We had three cats that we brought with us from L.A. and we made sure to get puppies when we decided to get dogs.

The cats are a little leery (two will run to stay the hell out of the dogs way, the other will swat at them with little provocation), but are otherwise fine with them.

The dogs treat the cats as if they were members of the pack that are higher in the pecking order than they are. They sometimes would like to play, but they never chase, and that's with one being a pit bull mix.

with huskies, the dominance factor is pretty high as I understand the breed. Have you shown her that you're the pack leader and its one of your bitches (no pun intended)? If the dog thinks that its the pack leader, teaching it to get along with the cat will be much more difficult.

It will take some time, but you need to teach your pup that it's life is better when the cat is around and treated nicely. Dogs just want attention and approval. sit with your dog in a room and have someone send the cat in. begin praising your dog immediately when the cat enters and continue as long as the dog remains calm. (you might want to have her laying down, and hopefully you've already trained her to stay) if the dog tries to attack, immediately yell no, and split them up.

for this to work, you need to keep the dogs attention as you're giving praise. you want the dog to know the cat is in the room, but to pay attention to you. if the dog has a favorite toy, you may want to use this to keep her entertained. small treats may also help. basically you want the dog to learn that you approve of her and she gets play/treats if the cat is in the room and she ignores it.

It will take some time, give it a week or two. Strive to be very consistent in your training and you'll get there.

Place both in crates that face each other for about 3 hours or at night. They cant get to each other but are very close and can see and smell.

Give it (much) more time. We introduced a 14week kitty to our 1.5yr old cat and the first week definitely didn't go very well. We got some cheap plastic fencing and used that as a barrier to the bedroom. Kitty inside, cat out and they could interact with each other like so first. Took some time before the cat would stop hissing and running away. Eventually we took the fence away and monitored their reactions (some slight fighting did ensue, but nothing serious).

Don't give up just yet!

Good post. We didn't give Tanner a way of getting to his litter box (Tanner was upstairs, his box downstairs, Sage in between). THAT was a mistake!

We introduced a kitten to our Border collie. We only had the dog for about 4 months but it definetly knew the house was hers.

All the dog wanted to do was chase and play with the cat. She whined and whined and barked for probably close to a month. Just keep on bringing the cat to the dog and let them get closer and closer. Eventually the cat will tolerate the dog.

Its been almost a year and now they are friends. The dog still chases the cat and probably annoys the **** out of him but for the most part the cat doesnt mind. If the dog is too annoying the cat lets the dog know and they she leaves the cat alone.

Thanks everyone for the great advice. I think we're slowly but surely making progress. It's probably just going to take some time.

update to my earlier post about bubbles not getting along with cats at all:

I have two cats. One very friendly cat who loves being petted and sitting on laps, and is generally pretty sociable. He hates the dog, and will only enter the kitchen when the dog is kenneled, outside, or occasionally sleeping. He has been known sneak a few pieces of my dogs food out of his bowl and take them elsewhere to eat.



I also have this fat POS cat. It's an *******. It will run up and rub on you for pets, bite you, then hiss if you actually touch it. Hates being handled and is morbidly obese while, inexplicably, the other cat is a perfectly normal weight on the same diet. This cat is the reason people hate cats. Thank god it's declawed. This fat bastard never comes in the dog areas because it hates the dog.



So the other day it just walked into the kitchen, up to my dog's bowl and went to town. My dog got pissy/confused and barked, and the cat just turned around and hissed at him and continued eating. This much progress took over a year. wonderful.

still can't believe a retarded and obese cat managed to fend off my dog, albeit very briefly. The ensuing chase was pretty epic. It's like a 90 pound difference!

Grant, do you have the link to your original post where you got the pup? I remember seeing puppy pictures, but I'd love to see pictures of him growing. I'm a sucker for arctics and wolf hybrids (as skiddish as they may be.)

So I slept downstairs in my guest bed last night (it's a twin) and this morning my goofball dogs decided they wanted to join me. So there we were, lying 3 wide on a twin, and the newest cat jumped up and curled up on my back.

I almost completely forgot about this thread.

They're doing great. Long story short, I put a remote activated shock collar on the dog for a day. It took three times before she realized maybe the cat WASN'T food, and they've been best friends ever since. Seriously, it was that easy. We're to the point where we no longer need to separate the two while we're out of the house, and they sleep on the same bed cuddle up to one another and sleep all day.

I'll take pictures / video for the cuteness factor.
