How Do You Stop Your Cat Attacking Your Dog?
English

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?

Might be worth trimming the claws to help the dog out.

Took ours about a month to acclimatize, but they're all fine now.

Could also try crating em both up individually and leaving them in a room or the garage?

Give him/her a couple of years and him/her should grow out of it, seriously !!!

I think it's a kitten thing they don't like other animals.

I think you must allow time for them to get used to each other, and realise that neither is a threat to the other.

When my kitten first met the neighbours little chihuahua, she bared her teeth and hissed a lot, in an effort to make sure that the dog knew not to get too close. Now several months later, my cat is happy to climb the fence, and jump into the neighbours garden to play.

It just takes a little time.

Spray the dog with cat repellent spray.   >)

The dog in time will learn to avoid the cat, both my neighbours dogs have learnt this lesson & avoid my cat (known as Mr Evil) as have my daughters dogs (both daft retrievers)   Smile

Get a Honey Badger to act as referee. No animal on planet earth will mess with a Honey Badger.

If you need to keep your cat in check, look no further than the Purina "Tidy Cat"

RE: How Do You Stop Your Cat Attacking Your Dog?

Well, I came home from work this afternoon, and the cat is sat on the coffee table, and the dog is wandering up for the odd sniff and to say hello.  The cat now justs snarls a bit and the dog backs off, so I guess they're beginning to get used to each other....
