Jack is very jealous of new dog...
So jack has done fine with dogs in the past, has lived with them and never shown any signs of jealousy.. but none of them were "my" dogs...
This dog is more "my" dog then any other dog thus far... anyways.. jack is being severely jealous and its literally not healthy for him, me or the dog.
Its only day one but the first incident was jack noticed the dog came up and they sniffed each other, jack then decided to be all cute rolling on the ground, paws up chirping and acting like he wanted to play, dog came over to sniff again and jack seemingly was laying a trap.. he hissed and took a swipe at the dog but did not run..
Fast forward to the "charging" - I was walking the dog and the cat was with me well he kept wanting my attention and i was not ignoring him but i had to pay attention to the dog too, jack decided to out of the blue chase the dog hair up hissing, this freaked the dog out...
Also in this photo, you see them being together, jack also completely randomly right after the photo charged the dog again, he stops though when he gets to him, its like he is trying to dominate the dog vs the dog being alpha over the cat.
The dog is not fixed but will be shortly, going to have a discussion with family about siring him out once then fixing, or just fixing. He's purebred and papered and I rescued him from a kill situation.
Jack has just been "grumpy" today, he came up for attention and i gave it to him but he left a little quicker then normal, and on the bed i went o pet him and he gave me his mad meow several times which is NOT normal.
Oh and he also blocked the doorway from the dog on purpose.. the dog went out of the room to get some water and my cat was on the bed with the dog at the time he saw this and immediately jumped down to the door and laid where the door was, he never hissed or anything at the dog just gave him this mean ass stare. The dog is far more nervous of the cat at this point, I have a lot of hope for them getting along and my cats jealousy to go away with proper attention, but has anybody else ever experienced this? Any thoughts?
