By taking your time and recognizing what both of your pets need, you can surely create a joyful, friendly, and cute home with both a dogo and a cute chonker cuddling on your couch.
Step 1 Introduction💞
⭐Most cats and dogs can happily live together if they are given time to adequately get to know each other at an early age. If a kitten and a puppy grow up together, they will learn the right way to get along with each other, and some cats and dogs grow to be real buddies. However, if a dog is already an established member of the household and a new cat or kitten is going to join the family or vice versa, certain safeguards need to be taken.
Prepare the Foundation
⭐Both Cats and Dogs are territorial creatures when they feel their territory is being threatened or invaded they will be stressed and anxious. So make sure that your home has sufficient space for the two pets to have some space apart from each other. You will also need to keep your furry friends separated for several days, so multiple rooms in your home are essential.
Slow Introduction through scent
You can easily do this by letting them smell each other's bedcovers and toys. This will satisfy their interest over this new roommate and help to ease possible territory struggles.
Another way to do this is by allowing the cat and dog to smell each other under the door separating them and alternating them between the rooms they are kept in.
Step 2 Interaction💞
⭐After a slow introduction, your pets should slowly and surly start feeling relaxed around each other. if the cat is scared and runs and hides whenever the dog gets near, you need to give the cat more time until it gets used to the smell and sound of your dog.
When the cat is accustomed to the smell and sounds of the dog, it may be time to let them meet each other.
- Hold your cat in your arms until it feels relaxed.
- Then ask a family member or friend to bring your dog on a leash.
- Slowly bring the dog and cat closer, wait for them both to settle down as they get closer to each other.
- Do not let the animals make physical contact, just let them get used to each other's company.
- Start petting both pets and show them that they are loved and that the other animal is not feared by you.
- Separate them again after a while and keep repeating the meeting sessions while gradually increasing the time of each session.
- Continue to have your cat and dog interact until they are finally enjoying each other's company.
💖It could take some time before your cat and dog can get along, but with love, patience, and understanding they'll surely be friends for the rest of their happy lives with you.💖
