BorderlineCrazy(: Posted November 22, 2011 Report Share Posted November 22, 2011 Almost every single one of my foster dogs has been intent on chasing the cat. All Border Collies, of course...My last one loved to chase, but wouldn't hurt. She did like to nip, but that was quickly dealt with when my larger cat gave her a good whack across the nose. My current one...Not sure what he wants to do. He bites, but I can't tell if he's trying to herd or hurt. The only time he did that was when the kitten kind of forced himself on the dog. Besides that, he's been fine with the cats. Normally I wouldn't be concerned - my two cats are 6 and 7 years old, and they're smart enough to either avoid the dogs or to let them know who's boss(I.E. foster gets a bloody nose if he/she gets too crazy). However my mom has a kitten, 5 months old, who's too vulnerable and little to be safe around these dogs, like my older cats are. It's hard to keep them all seperated, due to 1. the shape of my house and 2. He's not smart enough to stay away from the foster dogs. He'll walk right by them without a second thought, even though he's been nipped multiple times. I'm a bit frustrated. Any advice? As a little side note, check this out. This is my current foster boy Split face, two different colored eyes! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
