So, My dog is sweet as pie, but something BIG occurred to me the other day: My dog may be sweet, but even to the sweetest dog a kitten would be seen as a prey animal, and honestly, I fear the worst. Once when i was a small child, a dog we were sitting got ahold of a brand new kitten we had just adopted from the shelter. Let me just say that the kitten was nothing but a snack (RIP, i still feel horrible. the dog got to it even though we locked it in the bathroom with food water and litter) to this dog, and I really am afraid all of a sudden for my new kitten's life when she comes home in October. It's not that this dog shows any hints of being vicious or even playful in a more violent way, but does anyone have pointers on how to avoid this kitten being eaten (God forbid) or seriously wounded, or even messed around with at all? I want to make my kitten love her new home, not be terrified of a big black beast (the dog) that lives in the same house. Im riddled with fear since I realized that this might end up being a problem. I'm sure that once the cat is an adult it will be able to hold its own, but until then.. I need pointers. Maybe there are some pointers from some of you about how to introduce the kitten to its new home, then the kitten and the dog ... Oh, I just dont know.
