Well i got a new cat last night, well i was told she was a kitten maybe 10 weeks. Come to find out she is almost 1 year old "thanks mom". Anyway last night she would not let anyone touch her and would hiss when ever we got close. Today she is much better, she is coming out and will let us rub her. she will even come and rub along our legs but she is still not to sure. My ? i have her in my room untill she fills a little more relaxed but sooner or later she has to see my dog (1year rott) what is the best way to do this.
not an expert, but let her get comfortable with you and her surroundings first... they get overwhelmed soo fast!! Slowly introduce the dog and kitty together.. ie, put kitty in crate and let dog sniff, vice versa. That will allow them to see and react to eachother SAFELY, no fights I hope!! just keep increasing time and exposure and you'll be fine! Sometimes they get along GREAT, sometimes they chase eachother.. be prepared for either one. Good luck!
Well i did bring her out in her crate, damien (1 year rottweiler) wanted to see her of course. Well she did go to attack him and did hiss at him. Poor dog just had a look on in face as if to say what did i do !!!! I just left her out for a couple of mins, i will do this every night longer and longer. I hope after a while she will be used to seeing him and it will work out.
great... I'm sure it will be fine!! She was probably just like WHAT IS THIS?!!! Keep it up, I bet in a few weeks they'll be best friends. Maybe you could try the other way too.. put Damien in a crate and let kitty run loose... Good luck again!!! keep us updated
