Introducing the cats to a new dog

We've recently taken in an abandoned shih tzu, and our two Siamese cats are less than thrilled. While the dog is very even-tempered so far, I was wondering if anyone had any advice for making the cats more comfortable with a new pet in the home?

Cats and dogs.
by: Beatrice

Hi there,

It is hard to know. This type of dog is usually gentle and kind, but they are terriers and at the end of the day, the instinct is there to hunt.Be careful with the cats, cats and dogs have a mutual distrust!. Let them be introduced gently and I feel after a while, they will find their own space and you will soon see who is boss ( the cats of course!!!)

Kind regards,

Beatrice from Ireland.
