    So anywhere here have experience in this dept. Im taking a toy I bought over to see the pups and was gonna rub the pups scent on and bring it home and let the cats smell it.

    Any ideas on how it may go.

    What type of pup is it?

    A cat would always beat a pup if they got into a fight a pup learns very fast not to go for a cat.


    However certain dogs will always chase cats no matter what.

    Sometimes when we got our cats in the lounge with us our pup will be sleeping in the kitchen we have the door wide open between the lounge and the kitchen but have the stair gate there the cats jump over the stair gate and go in with him when the feel comfortable and if they get scared they can get out quite easily and although our pup can get over the stair gate he knows he isnt allowed so he never follows :D

    It wont be a problem they should take straight away my partners parents have cats and shih tzus and the cats hold the dogs down to clean them they treat them like their own babies lol we had to be more cautious as we have a Husky lol.

    I have a feeling were in for fun times then. Ill take a blanket to and rub the pup with it.


    We do have a gate at the top of the basement stairs to give the cats a place to get away. I hope to train the pup not go through the gates little cat door it has.

    The pups never seen cats before

    Just though maybe I should take little cloth rubbed on the cats to.
