Hi. I have a 4 year old cat that I have had since he was a kitten, his name is gkitty.
I have lived alone in an apartment the whole time I've had him.
I have a chance to move into a house with someone that has a dog. My question is, how do I introduce my cat to the dog...my cat has always been an indoor cat and will continue to be, but he has never been around other animals before.
Thank you for your time.
I would introduce them very slowly. First, I would try to keep the cat in your room with you for a few weeks. This will allow the dog time to adjust to a new animal in the house ( same with the cat). Then I would use a baby gate so the animals can see each other but not interact. Do htis for a few weeks. When you feel they are comfortable with each other try to introduce them but make sure the dog is on a leash. Have a water bottle ready in case the cat starts a fight. You can always spray her with a water bottle. vetcare
