I love the little hethens, but I would not trust them with the kitties. They are a dog bred to hunt vermin or other quarry like most all small terriers. Some terriers are bred to hold there quarry at bay(a bay and bolt dog) and some are bred to kill. Sorry but Scotty's are bred to kill there quarry.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
When I was a kid we had a Scottie. I wanted a dog like the one in the Wizard of Oz, but my mom couldn't find one so she got me a Scottie. Her name was Tabitha (from the Bewitch show). She was a very nice dog, but they do have powerful jaws so don't get bit. Our dog killed a Mexican fighting rooster, (that bird was crazy it kept jumping into the fenced in area with the dog until the dog killed it - my mom pulled that bird out three times, but it kept going back). The rooster was our guard dog (bird) no one could walk around our yard without a BIG stick because that bird would jump from the barn onto your head. We never locked our doors, because everyone knew the bird would get them, but after the bird was killed we were robbed several times.
Our Scottie never killed the cats, but she was raised with them and maybe they knew to stay away.
