|My2shepherds||For those that have cats how do you know for sure if your dog has accepted the cat? I have an outside stray that I has adopted us and Athena now almost 21 weeks went from hair up and growling when he first approached me (only with me not anyone else) to now still barking some but tail wagging at the same time... I am not allowing them together till he is healthy enough for worming and shots but I wonder about how their first face to face will result...|

Lucie waiting for the kitten to come out

Cleo is a little bit of a different story. He wants so bad to play with her. Usually he just lays down near her and whines and paws at her. She growls but she never runs or anything. Occasionally he'll try to chase her when she's in hyper mode but he always stays a step behind her and only rubs his nose on her. I can tell him to "leave it" when he's being too wild and it works. Yesterday he got so frustrated with us not playing with him (still recovering from a leg injury) and not being allowed to play with Cyclone that he sat in front of Cleo with a toy in his mouth. He kept trying to get her to grab the end of the toy so he could play tug the way he does with Cyclone. It was quite comical watching her look at him like he had lost his mind.
Then one day Fuzzy was in hyper mode and was batting Gunther's bones around the house. Gunther sat there looking from him to me like "really mom? I'm not allowed to play with him but he gets to play with my bones?". So I chased Fuzzy off.

Lucie is always chasing our cats... I think she likes the chase. I don't think she is being aggressive bc she throws her paw down like she does when playing.
But we recently brought home a new baby kitten and Lucie gets super excited barking and all. She tried to clean the baby kitten but then tried to put kittens head in her mouth... This behavior makes me cautious bc I don't know if she wants to kill the kitten or wants to carry her around.
I don't allow her to have any interaction with the kitten alone. I always have the kitten in my lap and Lucie on her leash. This makes Lucie unhappy and she whines for the kitten.
I'm wondering am I doing the right thing introducing them like this because I'm taking it very slowly only a short time each day does Lucie get to see the baby...

|My2shepherds||Sorry I know this is a little twisted (I have been told I am not right many times in my life) but I have the mental image of a full grown shepherd with its rear stuck in one of those covered litter boxes... LOL Promise you will get pics if this habit continues into adulthood...|

|Ellimaybel||That is hilarious. But I'd be more concerned that the cats won't want to go in their box with her scent in it. This could lead to the cats going outside of the box and trust me from a cat owner who has one like this, it's an issue.|
