I picked up my dog from the shelter last monday... she got along quikly with my male cat otis but the females are still hostile. Misha (the older cat) hasn't tried to hurt the dog she only grows and hises at her, but Tashy (the younger female) hits the screen that seperates them, and gets all puffed up when they get too close. this behavior isn't all the time... sometimes Tashy will just lay down and watch what Hani does. I read that I shouldn't discipline the cat cause she will asociate being punished with the dog and dislike her even more... i know she is like this becase she is jealous... she is extremely atached to me and my husband. but i consider we have given them the same atention as always... so what is your take on this situation... i feel bad that i have to devide them like this,i would like us all to be in the same room together.
