Mature Cats with new Puppy
Just looking for any tips from anyone who already had cats when they got their puppies.
We have two 1 and a 1/2 year old large male cats, and just got an 8 week old GSD.
The puppy is curious ... but the cats are being incredibly aggressive. I forgot to mention ... they aren't de-clawed. The pup has been batted rather aggressively a few times.
I don't want there to be too much hostility, because the cats will have the size advantage for a very short while, and I don't want the dog to become fearful and aggressive with the cats as she gets older.
