So far we have kept our 2 foster kittens seperate from our dog. They are currently in our bathroom. They are small enough to get under the door, so we have barricaded it with a package of blinds and the Kitty litter container. Every time I open it Gracie, our dog looks in. When we're in there she lays in front of the door, occasionally crying. Penny, the 6 week old kitten looks under the door at her. When Gracie hears them playing she also cries. Several times we've caught her trying to move the barricade. Today she succeeded. Resa, the 5week old kitten, was in Gracie's crate. She was puffed up but the door was open and Gracie was just looking at her, Penny was under the bed. I let Gracie outside. Penny had to be coaxed from under the bed but purred as soon as I picked her up.
What is the best way to introduce kittens and a dog? They have been smelling and seeing eachother for 2 weeks now. I put the kittens in their crate while I clean their room. Resa hisses when Gracie smells them but Penny doesn't seem to mind. Gracie has never barked or growled.
