We have two cats, who are both used to dogs being around (they actually seem braver with dogs than they do other cats!). They tend to like to watch the dogs and walk past them or just ignore them....not sure how they will be with a young puppy jumping around wanting to play.
How is the best way to introduce them? I think our younger cat Pai-pai will be better, so was going to slowly introduce her first and then Chloe (our older girl) later on in the day
Is it best to have the pup crated when we introduce them, or would that make him feel too enclosed and vulnerable with the cats? Advice would be greatly appreciated on this
I've read it's good to use the crate so that the pup and cats can get used to each others presence without physical contact and then slowly get them closer and then closer outside the crate....also praising the pup when he turns away from the cat or ignores them.....do you think that sounds right?
