Weekend before last we added a small cat to the household, courtesy of the local SPCA. Five bucks for the cat, two hundred bucks for the bed, the litter tray (with roof and privacy door, naturally), scratching post, toys.....
Anyway, the little six-pound eighteen month old kittie is all cute and cuddly except when the dog, a 110 lb Chesapeake Bay Retriever (kind of like a brown wooly labrador), comes up, tail wagging, wanting a sniff and to say hello.
The cat goes ballastic. The claws come out, the dog's nose gets a swipe and the little kitty-cat chases the dog nearly 20 times her weight right across the house. Guard dog? Pah!
Any ideas, apart from keeping them in separate rooms, on how to restore peace and tranquility?
