you only got her two weeks ago...not nearly enough time to acclimate and adjust to other animals. not nearly enough time.

high price to pay for the mistake. you never totally know about acceptance of other animals with a shelter dog...and it takes a long time to be comfortable that all will get along. you need to crate (or confine to a room without the other animals), when you're not home, and supervise closely even when you are...until all have acclimated. i would never be comfortable with her exposed to the cats when i wasn't home, if i were you.
