5Bordercollies Posted February 24, 2013 Report Share Posted February 24, 2013 Hi All, I'm looking for some advice. My almost four month old BC pup is really obsessed with my poor cats. Now I know that's nothing strange, two of the other four are also cat obsessed, but at respectively five years and two years they have developed some "ears". Although the two year old is being influenced by baby sister to not listen. My cats are indoor cats, despite us living on a farm - too many farm cats to fight with and catch ilnesses from. But they do get what we call "catwatch" once a day. Supervised outsde playtime for between half hour and hour. And that's when things go south BIG time. The herding of the cats on the ground I can control to a big extent now with just a pvc pipe or some form of stock stick pushed between her and cat, but hte moment it comes to going inside and I decide to pick the cat up for some reason e.g to take cat inside she will jump up against me and try to bite the cat. Now carrying a cat in your arms while trying to herd away a good sized puppy who's trying to get at the cat, who is at the same time trying to swat the puppy is not much fun. Putting the cat down on the grass results in cat promptly getting chased. And one of the cats - persian x siamese is not really a tree dweller so she especially is the victim. I'm starting the two year old on goats, and she's quite grippy with them, and today for the first time she chased and nipped at the cat, which obviously I can't allow. So I need to top this ASAP before cat gets hurt. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
