Hello. If you remember, I started a topic called Kitten Location Problem. My dad finally gave into letting the cat be a permanent indoor cat so we adopted a feral domestic shorthair kitten. Her name's Jewel. She is cute, and active, but doesn't really like staying still.
I planned to introduce her to my 3 year old Labrador Retriver, Amber. Amber is quirky, but can be gentle and mellow. She was kind to my past guinea pig, so I was hoping for them to get along. I was about to place Jewel in a cat cage after she ate her meal, but my little brother opened the door in the room me and my kitten were in, so Amber entered the room. Jewel was still eating food, and Amber went a little closer to her. Jewel was afraid Amber would get her cat food, so she got defensive and hissed.
I got upset at my brother, and let my dog out. Now I'm afraid they got to a bad start. Is Jewel an anti social kitten? She used to live with her mom in the shelter, how do I introduce my two pets properly? Please help, I don't want them to be enemies forever.
I appreciate advice and suggestions. Thanks in advance. Oh, and it would mean a lot to me if you suggest steps on how to introduce my cat and dog properly.
