I have a question for anyone who has both cats and dogs! I currently have an 8 year old cat and a 9 month old toy long haired chiuahuah! Of course the cat came first and that’s where the problem lies! I know it can take some time for them to become civil, however, I was wondering if anyone has any tips! We have a 2 story place so the cat is able to escape and we do keep the stairs gated off when we are home so the puppy can’t just run up and down (I let him a little here and there until he gains our trust), and we have had on just a couple occasions cat “sightings” downstairs. They have come face to face and for the most part the dog acts like he wants to play and the cat sounds like a sprinkler going off with all the hissing! There is no aggression on his part at all, just “I wanna play” type moves! So I am hoping she will come to terms and start coming downstairs again! Since she hasn’t been, well, nighttime is when she wants attention so she keeps us up by climbing all over us in bed! The other thing I need Tips or advice on is how to handle the litter box! He hasn’t tried to go in it yet and I correct him when he goes near it, however, if he is allowed to go up and down the stairs on his own, I can’t supervise him all the time! So any ideas there would be helpful! Thanks everyone! I sure appreciate the help!
