Puppy is driving me nuts with our cat.
So Caius is just a few days shy of 5 months old now. We got him at 7 weeks. We have a female cat named Gemma, shes almost 6.
Whenever Caius see's Gemma he barks and chases her. Even in his crate he will bark when he see her. We know he is barking because he wants to interact and play with her. He barks at everyone, people/dogs (which is something we are working on) until they pay attention to him and just licks and plays with them. I cant get him to calm down when he sees her. I have tried using treats and toys, it just doesnt work, its like nothing else matters but the cat.
Gemma is a very timid kind of cat. She is isnt the kind to sit on your lap and fall asleep. She likes to be in the same room as you but at a distance. She is very skiddish and often hides when people come over. She has always been this way. I guess you can see she isnt very confident which makes her afraid of Caius.
I am at my wits end. I feel so bad for her because she often just stays upstairs in our bedroom now, she only comes down to eat at night or when we are not home and Caius is crated. I feel like my home is divided. I dont need them to be best pals I just want them to be able to co exist.
BTW here they are...
sorry its so big!!
